Rolex 16014 datejust build

Recommended Posts

Moondustesp

So after selling my beloved 16014 franken built by Rolie I instantly regretted it. So I have another build underway. Will update as I go forward with the build. Plan is to be all genuine apart from movement, hands and bracelet. I gathered most of the parts needed just waiting on the movement and bracelet then i can begin assembly.  http://81_A97_EC5-52_FE-452_A-950_C-3_AC526_D05

So far have put case parts through an ultrasonic cleaner and changed o rings. Done a make shift water resistance test and let no water in. So far so good. http://3_CD99_EF5-760_C-4371-_ACED-90177591_A78

Looking forward to seeing it mate, and sorry for buying the last one, it does get lots of wrist time though :D

It’s a stunning watch and I am glad to hear it is still going strong. This build will be more or less the same as yours but I am using an engine turned bezel which I don’t believe is correct for the 16014 but I have seen gens for sale with them so who knows?? Just makes it a bit different from my last one.

Great choice for a project, love the linen dial.....

I'm making some hard choices at the moment about thinning the herd & I'm really torn on this one!

Can't wait to see your finished result......
