This mainplate, not one am going use for a build, because according to me too many cutting imperfections, but could give you an idea too, look especially like parts before the job on edges

Fantastic craftsmanship my friend. Not sure on the carbon case but just proves possibilities are endless. Good work!

Hope you have great legal representation for when Rolex takes you to court for trademark infringement. Hope you never feel the weight of Rolex on your throat... Safe travels.

Hummmm it’s a long story, going explain bro, first this watch is not more considered as a Rolex, because fully moded, means no more original warranty.
Even if initially a Rolex Daytona, now couldn’t be named like this, but by it’s newer brand name.
Secondly, all of those who are doing such custom, yes I wrote all, are in troubles with Rolex, because rolex don’t wants of those custom build and don’t wants to be associated at those kind of build, what’s legit according to me.
Finally people that are going buy those, or from others custom factory, are not buying anymore a Rolex but a custom watch build over a Rolex, that couldn’t be named a Rolex anymore and without the original warranty but the custom factory one.

Well, I still see in a few of your pics the Rolex logo on the crystal and that crown looks very much a triplock to me and I suspect that the crown hasn't been scraped off it...

No warranty for sure but that won't stop Rolex running after you because of those two "details".

Exactly. It is not like the buyer is sourcing the donor then giving it to you for the custom work. You are selling whatever "Daytona" you have kept the Rolex coronet I am assuming on the Crown and I am assuming same on the bracelet. I have seen multiple of your creations on this thread with the Rolex brand on the would be dial / etched on crystal. You have included the green/red tags in many of your pics and I doubt your movement has gone through CSOC? Are you removing any reference of rolex from Skelitonized movement including model numbers? You are selling a used watch as, a new creation that steals IP from Rolex... just my interpretation but I am not a lawyer. I know that rolex already shut down one aftermarket customizer and is looking to expand the net... I also feel that your thread fishes for business from TRF members along with using the expertise from members to improve your creation.

Not my cup of tea. But you do you until Rolex comes down on you with their legal team.

Am not selling watches bro, am building those for me first, after if consumers wants one, they could send it to made this custom.
Like could write previously, am just sharing here what’s could be done on this watch, thought if wanna sell them would have opened a sale thread, anyway it’s cool you have seen those I published, was thinking could be fun to share custom build, don’t saw one previously sharing, could understand why now!
COSC is not more used till some years ago, but don’t worry all watches have build are working perfectly .
Maybe you are not a lawyer, but for sure really acknowledge about. Like you wrote not your cup of tea and could understand.

I've already called you out on this months ago.

Your website/twitter/instagram all make it perfectly clear that you are selling these watches. You have a limited edition of 55 of the 'concept' model available as a pre-order according to your site. As well as multiple posts in this thread where you talk about completion and delivery.

You are using somebody else's registered trademarks in a commercial manner, that is the issue here. It's illegal and a dickish thing to do.

As far as I'm concerned these posts belong on the Rolex Replica Forum where you first started out. They certainly don't belong on the Rolex WatchTech subforum.

I'm in no way against customisation though. And I think the work you are doing looks cool (it's not for me but I can appreciate the effort you put in). Remove other people's registered trademarks from the photos you are advertising everywhere and the issue goes away.

p.s. COSC is still used by Rolex today.
p.p.s. Copyright and trademark laws don't require you to overtly sell a product. Your advertisements and social media posts alone amount to commercial gain as you build your brand on that back of registered designs and trademarks.

I was going to post this as a p.p.p.s but it turned out too long.

The following words are from your own website where you proudly display a legal notice. (https://www.skeletonconcept.com/fr/mentions-legales/)


The company SKELETON CONCEPT (hereinafter referred to as the "Company" or "SKELETON CONCEPT" ),


ARTICLE 16: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY


16.1 All of the Products designed and sold by the Company are protected by copyright, designs and / and all other intellectual property rights. These elements are the exclusive property of the Company. All of these rights are reserved for the whole world.


The name and brand, logos, designs and models, stylized letters, figurative marks, and all the signs represented are and will remain the exclusive property of the Company.


The Purchaser is strictly prohibited from reproducing or having reproduced the Products. All the models sold by the Company are registered models and the catalog images are not free of rights.



So not only do you use other peoples trademarks without permission, you have actually laid claim to them as if they are your own.
