  1. If you want them perfect then send it to Bob!
  2. Hey Hani...good to see you made it on TRF. That's completely legit and you've got a rare bird. You may have gotten a better deal on it than you thought. This is known as the 'stick dial' variation of the 16710.
  3. As other's have said...leave it to the pros! Watch making is a fun and rewarding hobby. If you are a DIY'er, then find a very cheap watch to practice on. I guarantee you'll make some 'fatal' mistakes on your first few attempts. Just so you know, to properly do the job you are looking at spending more on tools/parts than the cost of a brand new sub :) I'm sure FastFix has some decent watch repair guys out there, but I would personally send it off to one of the recommended third party service guys in your area with a proven track record working on Rolex movements. Good luck!
  4. @david yes it will work Another tidbit...some bracelet screws have loctite on them. You can actually use a hair dryer to loosen the glue up a bit, making it easier to unscrew.
  5. Wow, that's the first I've heard of this book. Looks awesome! Congrats!
  6. I've taken in around 75 the past year and the WORST was keeping +10 seconds per day with 95%+ keeping within COSC. Most of those being 2500's...I don't know where these 'faulty' 2500's are, but I've never come across one.
  7. Awesome watch Enjoy it! Once you go big, it's hard turning back. Next up, we'll get you in some Panerai's!
  8. Congrats Alfred! When people ask me "What's the best diver for the money?" I always say the 2500PO and Breitling Steelfish. Just amazing watches that can be had for a great price.
