My first Valjoux 72

I bought this from ebay. The seller is from Switzerland... after making payment, the watch arrived a week later...
Hmmmm the legendary valjoux 72... the same mechanism that is used in the ultra famous Paul Newman's edition Rolex Daytona 6263 and subsequent 6264... also in some of the prestige brand like Breitling, and Tag Heuer.

I thought of using this movement and trying to find Rolex 6263 casing and dial... Yeap try to be smart... just want to spend a few bucks and making a watch worth RM 100,000 +++ Aparently this wet dream does not come true, after enquire about the price for the genuine 6263 casing and dial... I decided to maintain this watch as it is... Jean Perret the authentic piece... Isn't that bad... the moral of this whole saga is don't force it... everything has a purpose in life...
