Default 8:00 movement in 3:00 case?

Hi there, thinking about putting a lefty Citizen 8203 movement (8:00 crown) in a 3:00 crown case. This would be a counter/anti clockwise rotation of 5 hours for the movement and then clockwise rotation of 5 hours for the dial. What might the issues/challenges be?


It is a day/date movement and day/date dial, so I am worried the day/date will no longer line up with the window (or each other) once the movement has been rotated. Is it easy/hard/impossible to re-align the day/date wheels to adjust for this? I can accept a little misalignment, but if the day doesn't even appear (i.e. blank spot between days) that would suck. The date will probably be fine.



I guess this will be obvious if I remove the dial (i.e. do day/date line up with crown), but I wanted to know before trying. Alternatively if someone can point me to a picture of a Citizen 8:00 movement sans dial, it should be easy to tell.



Thanks!

You just need a different day and date ring probably, and a new dial. There is no 8:00 vs 3:00 movít.

Or just buy an 8205 movement.

Thanks!
was hoping to repurpose this one, essentially a mint movement, just funky day/date orientation.

Itís a shame there arenít loads of spares around like there are for newer Seiko movíts. I was just looking at the two movíts and other than the day and date wheels they are same.
