    Nice build, I did also some 16610 in the past from a WM9 Base.
    And yes they will become expensive if u take gen Parts.
    I took the other route and installed VR3135 movements on my LV and LN.
    My other one is still on 2836 that runs fine.
    Equipped with most important gen Parts, like Crystal, Date,Inlay, Tube and Crown.
    Yes I have three of them.
    For me I like 5digits much more than the new Subs.

      Amazing post mega12. I have acquired a TCv6 based franken kermit on here, but I must admit I'm itching to try to build my own franken. Unfortunately, unmolested TC's and JF's are hard to come by these days. Have you ever considered the ARF kermit as a base ?

        Thanks man. Yes, these parts are getting rare nowadays. Indeed I did consider buying an ARF. However, my taste has changed in the meantime and I’m more into 6 digit models. After building several 6 digit Frankens I decided to move more into gen watches. Nonetheless, I guess that the ARF would still be a good base to start!

          Good timing... building these is getting ever more expensive.
          There's a separate thread on the forum on the ARF and some members have managed to fit quite a few gen parts to it. Albeit no one made a description as detailed as yours sadly!

            Wow, that's elaborate! Thanks!
