Jringo,
What do you mean by "the proper day and date windows"?
Can you be more detailed?
Thanks

I think this may mean that if you use the dial from the 3:00 crown watch in the 4:00 crown case, the whole dial will be rotated as its feet are in the wrong place. If the only thing you're using from the 3:00 watch is the movement, and then the dial is from the 4:00 watch, then the day/date wheels are your only problem.

...to my knowledge, the only diff between these movements is the jewel count, which as time has shown in these movements, doesn't seem to make much of a difference

well the day and date wheels are made for different models so you will need to get ones that will work with the stem in the 4pm setting...the original watch the movement came from is a 3pm ...am i correct?...i did not know this myself and had to learn the hard way once i assembled a watch and did not realize this...God Bless John

The D/D wheels looks the same but maybe the cogwheel that make them move is in different rotation around the pivot axis .The 3pm dial shows the D/D in a small rotation.
So, if, as DAHASCO suggested, I will change the D/D wheels between the movements, the 7546 should work on the 7548 case and dial... I hope..

well do you have the wheels from the 7458? or just the wheels from the 7546?...if you have a old 7548 movement for parts...you have all the parts you need to complete it...God Bless John

You will need to take the day and date wheels from the 4pm watch and put the. On the 3PM movement- the dial will make no difference as the window is still at 3pm
