    116613LB with the Nikz19 twist


    So after a pretty sh*t 12 months I wanted to treat myself to something a bit different. Having owned several gens this reference will always push my buttons. As I can’t justify investing nearly £12k into a gen right now I spoke to Nikz and we came up with a PlanB.
    I have to say dealing with Nikz was a pleasure, communication was superb and he kept updated and talked me through every step.
    So he took a CF 11613LB, did a full service and swapped out the barrel and mainspring for gen, installed a gen datewheel, gen crystal and pressure tested.
    He then replated to same colour as gen and added a ceramic nano coating.
    Have to say I’m knocked out with his workmanship and the end result, yes people will find flaws, it’s still a rep.
    I have no intention of trying to pass it off as gen, but every time I look at it I crack a smile and know it’s going to last me many years, so mission accomplished.
    Nikz19 I tip my hat to you sir

              One great looking watch my friend! And that is exactly why our own watchmakers are hand picked.
              Is it just me or this is the longest rollie clasp I have ever seen:

                        It’s a clear coating that goes over the plating to protect it from scratches and the usual everyday wear and tear……

                          Does the coating change the feel of the bracelet/watch in any way? Or does it still feel like touching steel?

                            Congrats on a bewdy, mate! The Bluesy will always rock and that's one mighty fine piece of creation by Nikz19

                            Seeing the finishing on the gold plating convinces me I really need to do a 16613LN with him
