    This is really a fantastic collection, especially the PNs and the golden 6263 (i own myself the 6263 in gold and some PNs). The 6262 is Valjoux powered? Looks like that.

    Thanks for sharing your collection. Really wonderful.

      This just landed. I've never been a modern Daytona fan, but vintage has always been on my radar.

              Thank you very much.
              This watch is the 6239 that yodog made for me.
              It is a Cartel d'Aix with ST19 movement.
              The dial is as shown in the picture.

                Yellobird Newb question, what do we look for in the pushers? I'm not familiar with the aspects of pushers that look off, and what about the Cousins 302 pushers that look gen-like. What details are the giveaway? Just want to learn the details, thank you in advance!

                  trash3939 Nice, thank you for sharing the build details! How long ago did you have this 6239 made?

                        Thank you very much.

                        I have only had this watch for a month, but I love it.
                        The bezel on the cartel is not very well made, so I am asking you to make a better bezel.

                          I agree, the Cartel bezels need improvement to look more gen-like. I'm afraid I don't know know how to make a better bezel, sorry! Maybe others on the forum know where to source a better one.

                            yes

                            There are many RWI members who process great watches and parts.
                            I just commissioned a steel bezel to be machined and am waiting for it to be completed.
