  1. Ok. With that said.......I have never seen a high end watch wrapped in all that plastic. Looks like a Chinese rep job. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. Is this even a mòdel Oris makes?? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. ^^^^^^^^what he said. Some times those stems dont seat when you replace them. If you give it a good tug without depressing the stem release and it pops out there is your issue. I seriously doubt it has anything to do with the hand replacement. Sounds like a botched stem job. Snap a few photos with the crown all the way seated. Id say if the balance is not swinging its probably stuck in the hacked pos. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Ok. Is the balance swinging. You should be able to wind it as that train is independent. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. You did replace the stem correct?? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Totally agree. Its all about value. I have a few nice chinese watches......paid a bit more than 50 bucks though. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. Yes. This guy has been reported about a 1000 times. Its ashamed as many times as this style oris has been reported that ebay still allows them. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. Thats a fake. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. If in fact the guy is ducking a sale it is a douchy thing to do. Not much you can do about it other than report it to ebay. You could sue for breach of contract but my guess is the cost to do so would far outweigh the value of the watch. Cut your losses and move on. You could just also bid on the item again. In defense of the seller the ebay listing is a bit of a complicated affair with all the options. It is possible he meant to set a reserve price and just didnt know how.

  10. Thats awesome. I never really got into the pocket watch but I can totally see the attraction. I think thee is so much more out there in terms of the pocket watch. Esp older stuff. They are probably easier to work on as well. Maybe......I totally need another hobby. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Lol. It doesnt have the remote function though like the watch I pictured. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Id love to see a new version. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. Crazy........my 20 dollar timex has better water resistence than that 10k watch. Whats the documented water resistence??? If youre not exceeding that then you shouldnt even have to think about much less be "weary". Id be curious to see what the OEM has to say. Not to knock you but this is just the reason why I haggle with the over priced watch game. Its such a racket. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. It depends if youre speaking ethically or legally........i wont get into ethics but legally it depends on the jurisdiction.......i assume that some folks in this thread are from different countrys. Here in the US I can legally put anything I want on anything I build as long as I am not doing so with the intent to make money. If I put a rolex emblem on my own truck theres not much they can do about it. If I go to sell said truck then they can sue for copyright infringement. As long as the use is of a personal nature theres really not much they can do. For me and I think if you actually talk to most folks that are in the rep hobby and trust me its way bigger than you may realize it has nothing to do with misrepresentation for profit or to advertise that youre richer than you really are but more so the fascination at seeing how they continually improve on their ability to replicate. Im not sure quite how to explain it. I can assure you there is absolutely no correlation to my wealth and my desire to be involved in this hobby. Theres also a sort of satisfaction in researching and sourcing the parts to build a gen from searching for parts. I totally agree with the fraudulent profit making practices from intentional misrepresentation should not be allowed condoned. People that own the gens should see it as a compliment that they are wearing a product that is so desired that an entire inustry will go to such great lenths to copy it.

  15. That is def a string of bad luck. Dont throw in the towel just yet. There are plenty of good people out there representing truthfully what they are selling. If you're ever unsure reach out to us. Id be happy to help. If you have anything that needs repair Id be happy to help with that as well. I have plenty of free time in my hands and do it for fun. I agree Paypal is def the way to go for resolution......they dont mess around. I spent a couple hours trying to find that rep hamilton for sale last night but have yet to locate it. I guess when you get down to a cheaper watch they arent made as reps per se but for the specific reason of being counterfeit and with the intent to defraud so I may not be able to locate it with the rep dealers I know. If I do I will let you know. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
