I wanted to do that also, but wife said she thought business wise it might be a no go. So I might do it on the caseback. And then maybe get ToxicNatos painted on the dial. I have found a few people who will do it. It only takes money. :crybaby: And I will get the font to match the Rolex font if I get it painted.

Hahaha too funny.

So the watch might be together this week. But I doubt it, we are getting about 10 watches a week to work on. And customers come first. I hope too see it soon though.

Coolness looking forwards to seeing this projects fruition.

Same here. I am ready to start wearing it. We have all the parts for it. Hopefully once assembly is complete everything works the way it should. It is super hard to tell if a part is damaged by just looking at it when they have such tight clearances. So during assembly that is when you can really tell what is working and what isn't.

Got an update T? Hopefully you caught a break and the thing came together. Somehow, I kinda doubt it... :shrug:

I have one last part I am waiting on from Germany. It is a Rolex click. But I haven't heard anything on shipping yet. The automatic bridge had to be replaced also. Luckily the 3135 shares some parts with other movements. So I was able to stick with all Rolex parts.

I'm part of a dive watch FB group and just saw the dude who originally jacked up this watch is a member there. Lol. I laughed to myself. Ah his video was a gem.

It is going to stay the way it is for a bit. I want to wear it some before I send it off again.

Yeah the one side of it is pretty rough. But so far it works. If it doesn't pass pressure test I will get another one. But this isn't a common crown design at all.

I would think a Trip-Lock would be pretty easy.
If someone tells you "Anal leakage sounds like fun", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

Well it might go smoother this time.

I got in the Rolex click a few minutes ago. Hopefully this is the last puzzle piece. :headbang: :pray:

Its running. We are gong to pressure test the case soon to see if the aftermarket crystal works out. We have one chipped movement jewel we are waiting on also. The supplier sent the wrong one, twice. :banghead:

Snippet from a video of it running.
