Well i have long thought of a way to make a affordable 6217..they are so elegant but so very expensive...i had this idea to find a case thsat might resemble it that does not cost two arms and legs and retrofit a 5256a movement to it...any thoughts?..my initial thought was the 6106 8000 for size but the crown is in the wrong position and i am told it is very expensive to change that...with all that said...i still think there must be a viable solution out there...anyone else ponder this?...i would love to hear some feedback..

Closest I got to a 6217 is a 7S26-0040 tribute. I had to remove crown guards and fitted a larger crown from a 7S26-0020 I think.
