    Default Off Topic, but wanted to share: Finally found a complete working Caliber 1040 Rolex

    Finding a working donor Tru-beat with dead seconds that doesn't cost nearly five figures has taken me 11 years. I have finally gotten all the parts with a complete working movement. Found this just before my birthday, got it as a present to myself! If any of you know what a 6556/6558 is then you know how hard this was to get all the parts!

    Fantastic thanks for sharing
