1675 Pepsi - DONE

Recommended Posts

NCRich

This is definitely one of the harder things I've tried. Lots of tiny fiddly bits and a rather high cost of failure with the swiss movement. But it is done.

I got the watch a couple years ago from Marvelous Replica. Advertising said it was a swiss movement. It was around $250. I wore it a few times but stuck it in the box and forgot it. Saw some builds and thought I could do it. The crystal and insert were like $30. The rest is sweat equity, bleach, coffee, and lacquer. :lol:

What are the specs of the build?

 

Crystal and insert from WSO. This had the plastic gasket securing the bezel assembly to the crystal and of course I destroyed it removing it. Turns out it is really a sapphire crystal gasket for holding a Rolex crystal. Ordered a few of those from Ofrei and worked like a charm. I got the watch a couple years ago from Marvelous Replica. Advertising said it was a swiss movement. I wore it a few times but scratched the crystal and bezel insert so I stuck it in the box and forgot it. Saw some builds and thought I could do it. The crystal and insert were like $30. The rest is sweat equity and sanding, bleach, coffee, and lacquer.
