    Almost full Franken 5167

    Hi I just want to share my recent franken project.

    Build details:
    Base watch 3kf V1
    Gen dial
    Gen datewheel
    Gen second hand
    Rebrush case as per Gen
    Fully service clone 324

    Gen dial & 3kf hand v1 (v1.1 has too white lume)




    Gen date wheel VS 3kf date wheel









    After/Before








    Tips: you need to modify hand/second hand in order to install to clone 324. Other parts is interchangeable.

    ​​​​​​​Cheers

    Looks wry nice congrats!
    Did you happen to try the gen dw on the rep dial? Does it fit?
    A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure !

          What I meant to say is if the dates are centered on the rep dial. On the nautilus 3kf the gen dw is not well aligned with the 3k dial.

            eririn Amazing. that's a very nice build!

            when they cleaned the movement did the print come away from the bridge plates?

                  ZF strap and gen strap has minor different in my opinion. So no need for gen strap.

                      Any particular reason why you went gen with only the second hand ?

                        Wow amazing build. Congratulations and wear it in good health!

                        If by any chance you have gen Vs. rep dial comparison pics that would be very interesting to see them

                        Thanks again for sharing!

                          Clone 324 has different size of hour wheel and minute wheel so it won't fit gen hand. For second hand, I also have to modify it in order to install to clone movement.

                          gen second hand
                          ​​​​
                          Rep second hand

                            Gen is on the left.

                            Very noticeable difference between gen and rep.
                            Gen has more dull sunburst and more grey.
                            Rep has brown shades. however, 3kf dial is way much better than ZF dial.
