I just received my Helenarou , which according to my research is considered to be the best ‘out-of-the-box’ replica. If I can get that fitted without breaking the bank I’ll be totally satisfied with the watch. HR has got back to me and offered to send me another dial.

I wonder if Jake B’s Black Bay dial would fit this case. Then there’s the problem of sourcing the right red gold hands for the ETA I also took advantage of the opportunity to order a Bond bezel which my watchmaker fitted. Sorry for the quick and dirty phone pic. Send it to rollie if you’re in UK, may just be dust or ask for new dial only and let rollie change it out, simple job.

These are an easy watch to work on. Like I say these aren’t a cheapie, worked on mine and they’re quality. As it happens blemishes on helennarou original dial were able to be cleaned bnd easily and I didn’t need the new dial so I sent it back to HR. This is half the price. What do you fellow ‘WIS’ suggest for a solution?

I’ll helenaroou sure to drop you a line when I get the replacement. When it gets here I’ll post some pics. I’m very happy with the crown.


The cost of the Helenarou depends on what movement you choose and whether you go for sterile, Rolex branded or custom printing. The shape appears to be very accurate when compared to gen crown pics on Hodinkee.

A bit of dust in the ‘O’ of ‘Rolex’. I believe the dial on the Helenarou case is 29mm, helsnarou That’s very reassuring to know.

If you are referring to the bracelet cost, mine came as part of a cheap Sillix? Previous 1 2 template Next. Don’t touch the crown. I have sold on here many times.
