    RE: " courage to ask for help... with knock-off" Thanks! The way I see it, even the world's best brain surgeon started with a dead pig! :) I'm sure not going to crack open Daddy's Rolex before I practice on some "knock-offs" and cheap mechanical movements. :)

    1990's Fake Rolex rebuild. ISO movement...

    "" just buy a real rolex "" LOL! Why buy when ones has inherited antique rolex watches?
  5. Hi All! I'm hoping to clean-up and repair an attractive but failing fake Rolex I purchased in NYC back in the 1990's . The movement died and I would like to replace it with as an exact fit as I can find whether it be quartz or automatic. The movement that came in the watch is marked ... ""TMX No jewels Philippines B7N"" I am not finding a B7N anywhere (yet). Does anyone know what movement is (mostly) the same as the B7N? Also, I am new to all of this so there may be a thousand movements that fit.?? My watch uses a plastic adapter to fit the movement--not sure how one fits/mates/sizes movements to cases (this one 40mm) , and adapters. Please point me in the direction I should go. THANKS! .z

    ISO Ceramic Bezel 42mm OD, 34mm ID

    I wonder why so difficult to locate such a basic bezel? Hmm?
  9. ISO Ceramic Bezel 42mm OD, 34mm ID. Fits Revue Thommen (Grovana) Dive 17030.2. Nothing close available at CousinsUK (best I can tell?). Factory can supply me with Aluminum, but I want to "upgrade" to ceramic. ...the closest bezel I find is the blue ceramic for certain Rolex Yacht-masters. UGLY! ;) Suggestions on where to shop, please? Thanks in advance! .z
  10. ISO bezel insert: 42mm OD, 34mm ID. So far, I have only located the bezel I need through the Swiss manufacturer and (as you can imagine) the cost+shipping are higher than ideal. No luck using Frei, Cousins, etc. Thoughts on where to hunt? Thanks in advance! .zeb
  11. Bergeon has some nice kits! BERGEON-6817-09 looks really nice!
  12. Me? I'm a holdover from the manual and electro-mechanical typewriter industry. I have carried a tool kit all my life to the point that my tool kit arm is longer than the other! LOL! I'm old, but still curious as a cat and might finally be getting serious with my Horology education-have tinkered with watches for years, but nothing serious. -opened my first watch case back in the 1960's and watched parts go a-flyin' ! Luckily, it was my brother's watch, so I wasn't out anything! Recently I have been trying to regulate a Sellita SW200 that was gaining 2 minutes per day. With help from a large magnet the watch is now at minus 15 seconds per day. Hoping to learn enough to take care of the problem, Currently in process of buying proper tools, I have a low dollar kit, but it is just not good enough (in my opinion). I'm a stickler for correct sized screwdrivers and despise a marred screw head! My goal with screws are to keep them looking un-touched! Best! Zeb
