Little homage project planned
Right, I've planned a few of these and some have fallen by the wayside except for a nice SKX009 with some subtle sleeper mods that I enjoy a lot.
But enough rambling, I am planning a project around a certain bronze 1605 case that has been receiving some attention lately and have some questions that I hope the good folks here can help me out with. As the new case needs to be made according to the dimension of the parts and donor watch template.
1. Will the calendar window of the 6105 style dial measure to the calendar ring on the NE15 movement? Of course it will need to be fixed with dial dots as was kindly pointed out by John of TheTigerUK.
2. Is the 1065 slightly domed crystal + gasket compatible with the SKX case?
The movement will be a NE15b and the hands and dial will be aftermarket 6105 style therefore the inner dimensions of the case need to be as per the SKX case.
It would make it easier if the crystal and gasket diameters were also compatible with the SKX case, but if not I would need to specify that, which kind of complicates doing things as I'd like to keep the profile true with the subtly domed shape of the 6105 crystal, as opposed to the usual generic SKX domed crystal which is a bit different.
I hope I have not obfuscated my question with all the waffle but its quite difficult without having the parts in hand to measure.
