John, within the exact dimensions of an SKX case, the 6r15 will be the top grade movement in that class. It's almost plug and play. The 'almost' resides in the fact that if you going to use the original dial, you'll have to add a week day wheel (doable, done in the past by the late and dear Noah Fuller and Jake B.).

Also, if going the 6r15 route, you will need a proper stem also, due to the hack and handwind complications not present in the 7s26, originally.

The SARB059 uses the exact same case of the SKX007, plus it's powered by a 6r15, so this is proof that that case is able to house a 6r15 plug'n'(almost)play.

Take the SARB059 original crown (which looks exactly like the SKX crown, but it is signed as a plus) and you'll have the stem puzzle solved.

That sounds interesting Chris, I seem to remember reading a post about it not too long back so.......where would i get a 6R15 movement and price ? and also the SARB crown/stem ?
You know the answer to both your questions, John! :p

Although as stated above, CousinsUK could be an alternative for the movement, but they will restock the NE15 (unbranded 6r15 from SII) only around April 2015, if you're willing to wait 'till there.
