Supposing one had the essential elements of a 6105-8000, the case, the back, the bezel, crown, what would one need to build a watch? Crystal, gaskets, dial, hands...all easily attainable in some form or another. But what of the movement? What 6xxx movement can be dropped into this case (other than a 6105 of course)? What additional pieces vis-a-vis spacers and such would be necessary? Are there 6xxx based watches that would have everything one would need?

I understand that the 6106 fits, but because of the crown set up, you can't operate the day/date quickset (which means you have to cycle them to set them). I could be wrong about the fit though.

Good to know. I was thinking in terms of a dateless mod anyway. Does the 6106 hack? Would a different stem be needed to mate to the crown?
