    I concur with the choice. That comparison photo is worth looking at, you have to look real close to see the differences. You could have used a Seiko watch and made the watch around it to have a working model. In fact, some of the knock offs counterfeits, use a Seiko as a base for the top end knock offs. Congratulations on the MOM.

    I totally agree with this choice. Even after looking at the image full size I mistook the real for the model. That's a great job on an interesting model, for sure.

    But does it have the right time more that twice a day? And does the warrantee protect the watch from crushing damage?

    Lol

    Seriously, great work.

    You may have to take it to a Rolex dealer repair shop and get an estimate for repair and tune up.
