My Franken 116610LV "Hulk" Build

Recommended Posts

Chiquita Fanjita

I've just received back my 116610LV build, and can't say how happy I am with it.

The base model is a 3135 Noob v7 and have Frankened it with the following:-

Sputtered bezel insert
Gen DWO
Gen Crystal
Gen Crown
Gen Tube & Gasket
Gen Hands
Noob v9 dial

I also had the bracelet and case re-brushed along with the case and bracelet sides and inner deployant polished.

The crystal makes a huge difference and really emphasises the way the gen hands seem to have a 3D effect to them and catch the light.  Even the gen crown looks better defined and more prominent than the rep.

Overall, I am over the moon with how this turned out.

That's nice ! Congrats !

But educate the Rolex noob inside me : 
Sputtered bezel insert : I see the point
- Gen DWO : I see the point, but does the rep is really a tell ?
- Gen Crystal : You explained very clearly, I see the point
- Gen Crown : Rep is really bad ?
- Gen Tube & Gasket : I guess this is an obligatory step if you want the gen crown ?
- Gen Hands : Would have asked, but you explained very clearly too
- Noob v9 dial : Wouldn't that be the part where you would want a gen dial ? Unobtainable ? Too expensive ? Not compatible ?

It’s a complete peach of a hulk Andy. I even love the matching lume colour from the v9 dial against the gen hands. Quality

Thanks :) 

- Gen DWO : I see the point, but does the rep is really a tell ? - Certain factories just can't get the font right.  The Noob is reasonably good, but just not the same as the gen.
- Gen Crown : Rep is really bad ? - It's not bad, but when you see it side by side with the gen it is noticeably different.  The coronet on the crown stands out a lot more and in general it seems to have a brighter shine to it.
- Gen Tube & Gasket : I guess this is an obligatory step if you want the gen crown ? - Yes
- Noob v9 dial : Wouldn't that be the part where you would want a gen dial ? Unobtainable ? Too expensive ? Not compatible ?  - You've hit the nail on the head.  The gen dial is pretty hard to obtain and is also quite expensive.  I could've tried to obtain one, but the v9 dial is very close to the 2018 gen dial, so thought I'd save on that.

Cheers mate.  Yeah, the lume is a great match.  The hands have a bit stronger lume being gen, but still pretty good match.  Will see how it looks in total darkness later.

I don't actually have that many.  Got a few of the bracelet mid re-brush and mid bath, but not really of it in bits.  Rolie might have some more though.

Cheers mate.  Yeah the sputtering on it is fantastic and like you say seems to have lifted the green.

Looks amazing, If you don't mind me asking did it goto a local modder? I'm buying my dad an ARF datejust and have a gen DW I want to get fitted. Local would be a lot less stressful haha

Better lume pic. Match is pretty much perfect and so far both hands and dial are still glowing pretty much evenly.
