      RWG Needs Your Support - upgrade to a VIP/Supporter membership! If you find your time here to be useful and (we hope) entertaining, we encourage you to become a VIP/Supporter member. This only costs £21 (a little under $30 USD dependent on exchange rates) per annum and all proceeds go towards our hosting costs and making RWG the best watch board around. By becoming a supporter you will also gain a number of benefits including: 1. If you subscribe during one of our VIP upgrade competitions (announced above the shoutybox on the board index page and also found in our competitions subforum), then you could win a nice watch (usually a high-quality rep). We run these competitions approximately monthly, so keep your eyes open for the next one. You will also get access to our free birthday VIP giveaways - you could win a strap, watch tools or even a watch (there have been some amazing prizes including gen Longines, Raymond Weil, Hamilton and Victorinox watches, along with various high-end reps!) 2. Early access to the Member Sales area (see the sales area for rules) and the ability to bump your sale to the top of the board periodically. 3. Access to the supporters-only section of the board. 4. Increased PM storage 5. The ability to change your displayed user name (once in a 90-day period). 6. Occasional discounts from some of our dealers (keep an eye on their subforums for special offers).

  1. As we all know, the Achilles heel of most of High end Rolex reps is the color of the "Platinum" engravings on the Ceramic Bezel! Under Sun/Flash light they seem OK, but inside and under low light conditions they tend to appear Greyish! My 116610 LN from ARF is no exception! Indoors, Flash photo: Indoors, No flash: So after coming back from Rolie for a slight issue, I thought a Bezel "Makeover" would make my Sub look truly amazing! I decided to go with the "Sharpie" method that I saw "next door" at RWI. Since we don't have the Sharpie brand in my country, I tried to find something equivalent. After playing around with a few brands, checking the color and the ink flow, I decided that the "Pilot" brand was the best to use for the task! Filling the engravings with a continuous flow is fairly easy! You can't use too much....Just be careful not to overdo it! No worries regarding the removal of the excess paint; it's easily done with an disinfectant wipe and a cotton kitchen towel. The glossy Ceramic Bezel makes it very easy to clean. After applying the paint, I let it rest for a while or you can speed up the drying process with a hair blow dryer (if you're in a hurry) You then use gentle strokes back and forth with the alcohol wipe + towel ( in turns) to remove the excess paint covering the Bezel. Put some elbow grease and after a while here's the result: Indoors No Flash Indoors with Flash: Indoors, No Flash: Pretty cool, huh? Thanks for watching! Cheers!
