    Default Feedback on Raffles Watch sets

    Hi,

    Just got into this hobby a few months ago and I wanted to basically build my own watch. I don't want to spend too much as this is going to be more of a trial build. I was wondering if anyone has bought watch sets from Raffles and built their own watches. How has the experience been and how good is the quality?

    This is what I am looking to buy:

    Steel Black Rolex 116610 Submariner Watch Set With Black Ceramic Bezel And Super Luminova Fit ETA 2824 Movement - Raffles Dials

    Basically a 116610 sub and would want to use an Asian eta 2824 with it. Thanks in advance for your inputs guys.

    BTW, I am in Asia and am open to buying the parts from elsewhere if you guys think it would be better going with someone else.

    I never heard of Raffles in which you buy rep watch parts from them to build a rep watch.
    "Aiyah Panerai, buay beh liao eh lah."

    PM me if you want to sell your Kevin, Ted Su, Wotancraft, Piotr or Simona Straps.

    Strap size is 24 mm and or 26 mm and at least 80mm by 140mm or larger.

    Raffles is a parts supplier for watches (has nothing to do with a raffle where you win things)

    https://www.ebay.de/str/rafflestime I've purchased various parts from them in the past

    I am surprised that they are able to sell rep parts on EBay as you are looking to build a rep Rolex.

    Some of their stock is only available from their website - they only sell the more “generic” parts on eBay (at least, that seems to be the case on UK eBay). But you don’t actually buy from their website, you email them and they give you a link to an eBay item to buy of the same value on their eBay store (which might be unrelated to what you actually want). You pay for that item on eBay and they send you the thing you wanted.

    It’s a funny system!

    It is a way for them to sell rep watch parts and use EBay for the transaction so they get paid for goods and services via PayPal.
