Default Maybe have source for vintage citizen diver bezel insert repros

I've been trying to find a source for bezel inserts for the vintage citizen big crown divers like the 52-0110 and the 62-6198, 68-5372, etc. and I may have found somebody willing to make some. Somebody reputable. But he will need more than one or two people to commit.

So, are there any members who are interested?? Post here or pm.

I'm not selling anything here, just trying to measure interest, but if this is inappropriate please remove or move.

Thanks for putting this out. You may want to check with Sweephand, I think he's a Citizen guy?

I don't own any of those models yet, but when I do, i'll know where to go.

Hey, sorry this one kind of fizzled. There are at least 4 different types of these inserts and too little interest in any one. I need to follow up to be sure but I believe we're talking several dozen to even think about getting this rolling and then which variant?

Thanks for trying. I would've gone for one for my 52 0110 and my customer's 62-6198

Trust me, I'm still interested in doing this, there has to be a ton more interest though. I'd love to see somebody figure out how to punch these out accurately on a onesie twosie basis, but so far it's not happening.

Ok, heard back. Between 3 and 50 pieces to move forward. No idea of price. Not sure about coordinating the purchase, will have to follow up.

There are at least 3 sizes of these inserts - the size that fits the B52806 and 62-5370, the size that fits the 62-6198 and 52-0110 and a couple others of which there are two designs and the size that fits the 51-2273. So I guess it would depend on interest in which ones, and how many of each. And I image an example would need to be supplied to pattern after. I have a wabi 51-2273 bezel and insert I could cough up. I personally need a B52806 insert, but I'm prob alone there and don't have an old insert to supply anyway.

Well, it's not just for me. I originally was going to see if some could be made for the 52-0110 as I thought it was the same size as what I need for my B52806 and it seems like there are tons of 52-0110s out there with junk inserts. Turn out the B52806 is smaller and thinner. But plenty of folks still need inserts for the 52-0110, so figure focus on that. And a lot of the 51-2273s I see have trashed inserts too, so maybe have some of those made. I've got a few 51-2273 bezels and inserts from scrap watches, so could send one to be used to copy from.

Ignore the one with the blemish. None will go out like that.
