We need to have rebuild compatibility list with currently available case sets (aliexpress for 6152 and getat or similar for Luminor) and we'll be ready for really great builds. Think about it, if we show interest and buy parts market will follow.
Sorry for the OT
Yeah, there're still some great builders still here. Just that...we're like a small and close community. In my case, after 10 years far away from watch world, I came back to find out that WUS is stopped, and I cannot find any informations on Google :)) Just a coincidence when I try some searching on reddit, the name of kp0y appeared, and I found out this place. So lucky for me!

Thank you, on behalf of all the HF team. We consider this the main reason for our existence in the Internet.

We tried our best to back all the good pieces of information up so they don't get lost in the wind.

I should be the one to say thanks to all of you for creating this place, so guys like me have chance to know and also to get many great Pam homages. Before knowing HF, I only wish to have a genuine Panerai, but now, in my opinion, many builds here is far better than the Vendome Panerai :)) I sold my gen 312 and only want to get as much builds as I can :))

Many many moons ago Gordon posted some of his angelus builds on Repgeek, I was immediately amazed at those builds. I had never visited other forums, and even less did I know about HF. And because of him, the vintage panerai homage bug got me ...and I came over to HF, which was already a very mature forum. I have communicated with him over the years, bought parts and most recent when he produced his new case sets. His dedication and investment in this hobby has been immeasurable. He is a true gentlemen.

I contacted Gordon
As you know he is closing shop for a while
So I offered, for the community and Gordon, to keep some stock if anyone needs anything.I will not be making a penny on this, I'm good friends with G and I thought I could help out. Prices are as per Gordon's website, and I will make a sales thread later. There isn't that much here and as said all proceeds will go to Gordon
