My latest build . My goal was to build a military look pilots watch that was hackable and had a large non screw down crown.. I started with a retro case from helenarou with sapphire crystals front and back. unfortunately it had a screw down onion crown that I did not like . I found a junk Invicta watch with an oversize crown (10mm) I had to remove the existing crown and tube and fabricate a new tube to fit the Invicta crown. I ordered a military dial from Otto Frei along with a 16mm second hand. The minute and hour hands came from a Seiko black monster and the ETA2836 movement came from a Croton watch. The project was finished off with a leather pilot strap with rivets.
Please excuse any dust or lint you may see in the pictures.
