    Post your franken Daytona’s and spec

    I see many franken Daytona’s here and there, could help to post them here with specifications.

    116500
    Noob SA4130 base V2
    Gen crystal and gaskets
    Gen hands
    Gen barrel and mainspring
    Case shaped on lugs and left side case
    Arf claps, dial, bezel, V2
    Band brushed like gen is
    Movements fully serviced with also gen auto wind module and the gen 4130 upper bridge



    116515 individual build
    Noob SA4130 base
    Gen crystal and gaskets all
    Gen hands set
    Gen mainspring
    Movement fully serviced
    Aftermarket dial with gen saphirs index
    Gen rubber B strap
    Aftermarket brown ceramic bezel, same size gen


    Difficulties on build?
    On the 116515 none, all fit in perfectly, even gen hands
    On the 116500, a nightmare on gen hands to fit in, need to mod them a little, the subdials ones, 2 of them and the seconds chrono hands too,
    Shaved the ARF dial was easy, just have to go carefully and slowly.
    On both need to shaved the outside gen crystal gasket, they fit for steel bezel and not ceramic ones, 0,2 mm to fat, I braked one ceramic bezel before understand!!!

    Servicing done by my watchmaker, Harleysta91, who made a very good job, one was over oiled and the other not too bad at all but on both metallic parts and graphite dust, so IMHO servicing is a must do.
    After servicing, used them one month and after return to my watchmaker to check all run as have to.

    116500LN Arf dial doesn't look V2, but V1, that has the correct subdial numbers position.

      It’s a good new, when I bought it seller don’t know if V1 or V2, even me as I don’t have a real V1 and V2 to compare, so I supposed it’s a V2, but if you say it V1 i trust you and thought it’s good for me.

          Noob 4130
          Gen movement parts, gen dial hands crown and tube
          Arf bracelet and bezel
          Various gen movement parts added with more to come
          Have a gen clutch sitting in a drawer that’s going in at some point
          probably do pushers
          Very satisfying build. Carmel Rolex AD couldn’t keep his hands off it

              Stunning! really love the 116519 panda dial
              Did you do anything to your sel? Mine also has arf bracelt mounted but it is flushed with the lugs not recessed like yours.
              Also it is about the same length with the end of the lug.

              Yours looks great.

              Thanks
