    Super franken 1675 build

    So one thing led to another and I can't climb out of this rabbit hole...

    Still looking for a gen 3.1M case but everything is ready to go to be mounted in a modded Viet case...

          So far:

          Gen Mk2 Dial
          Gen 1570 movement
          Gen Hooked 7 DW
          Gen Pepsi - fat font
          Gen 116 Crystal
          Gen 5.3mm GMT crown
          Gen GMT hand

          Still trying to find a reasonably priced set of hour/minute/second hands, and hopefully a gen bezel assembly.

          Given up on the case for now....

              Is this the one that costs $1700? Is it worth it?

              But in this underworld of rep watches,it is clear that the normal thing is to play with the luck of the Seller's roulette - j.m.mozos

              I wanted this omega so bad :/

                I think the build will cost much more than USD 1700. The gen part’s price has gone through the roof.
                To think about it, even the stock rep watch also getting expensive.

                    damn. That's sexy

                    i was trying to find a reasonably-priced 1575 GMT movement for a good year. Obtaining one of these movement for a reasonable price is as hard as trying to get a selfie with Kim Jong Un

                            Okay that didnt take long I guess making these threads is useless if everything fits apart like the should lol.

                            decided on wearing it with a gen black fat font instead for now

                              So good.

                              Nothing beats a gen dial.
