It's OK, but could be adjusted better.

This may be an odd question, especially seeing as I'm only at the point of getting informed, but was the possibility of swapping the 7750 out for a quartz chrono movement ever entertained?

Hi I am after a rep Rolex Daytona and have been offered one from WatchInternational price for it is $198 with Asian 7750 movement.

 

Is it worth it? Having read through the post I have seen many fors and againsts but I do really like the watches.

 

Am I better sticking with my first option of a sub? They seem alot more reliable.

 

Cheers.

Daytona's with secs@6 are a time bomb. Most fail before long. Avoid.

 

If you can find a secs@9 model (such as some of the vintage versions) they're MUCH better and a good buy.

Are these hard to get hold of then? Do you know anywhere that offers them from the trusted dealers list or does it just require some e-mailing around different dealers?

 

Sorry to be a noob!! Appreciate the help though :)

The vintage 'tonas are available from most of the trusted dealers and are excellent quality, driven by a handwind Sea-Gull ST19 movement (aka 'lemania') which is about the most reliable chrono movement found in reps.

 

There are some modern secs@9 versions around too, but they're a little rarer - I believe Silix was listing them. The vintage models are generally better quality, though.

What about the IWC Top Gun Pilot Chrono 7750 28,800bph?

 

Any ticking time bomb issues with that model?

Nope, no worries there.

 

 

Yes Silix is where I have found the one I am after.. This model here...

Thanks for that trailboss.

 

Bit hesitant at dropping US$300+ for something that's going to stop dead after a few weeks/months.

Thanks mate that's great news! I'm gonna get ordering one tonight.

 

Just out of curiosity have you ever bought a Daytona? :)

 

Or what is your favourite replica watch you have ever bought?

Some folks say the closer to the 12 the better............but I don't get how that works if you're timing something, kinda seems to be a pointless claim as the return mechanism should be able to cope with any dial stop position.

 

So I'd normally just stop it anywhere.

It's a rep thing (sort of like handwinding) It's supposed to work, but it can cause a rep hand to slip.
