    This stunner would look right at home in the window of the local vintage watch dealer.

    JF base?

      A is my favorite. It shows exactly what I would want from a mechanical watch, i.e. full calendar plus power reserve. But it has some mechanical quirk, so close seconds are B & C

        Hi museguyOris the base watch is JF. The JF needed refinement tho; so I sent it to tripdog for shaping and finishing. But (IMO) the JF case is a better overall shape than the TC (which is the base of my other Franken 16610).

        Countess Koscowicz Yes, the dial is gen. And it’s what makes this the number 1 watch in my collection. So you don’t have to eat your hat (damn, that would take some eating too...),

          How are you ?

          I enjoy reading your posts and seeing your photos. May I ask which is your favorite replica watch ?

          I am becoming more interested in vintage replicas. Cheers.
          I have too many to have a favorite. I would say these come close.

            It's very interesting to see you pick your own favourites Rich, given the number of watches you must own, and how many of them are your own excellent work.

              LOL, yeah. Subs are too run of the mill for me to pick as a fav. Most watches I would pick as a fav have some back story as to the things I learned building them. Learning to use a gen dial on a DJ, creating dials from decals, in the case of the Omega just the first watch I ever built. So these two as well, simply by being ones I learned the most on.

                          not the best tudor 79090 rep, but it's all stock and just $228 so quite a watch for such little money.

                            Wow NCRich

                            You are a master, very appreciative of you sharing your favorites !

                            Is there a thread of the Omega build ? Can you tell me more about the Omega base watch ?

                            Thank you.

                            P.S. Damn that Omega is beautiful !!

                                Do you have build threads for the watches ?

                                Please share more information about the base watches. Wow, am I impressed.
