Project watches - Report II
Hello all and thanks for the recent feedback on my custom watch project. I sold that one and am moving on to the next. I'm at the stage of obtaining some interesting Unitas movements and trying some case suppliers as well as suppliers of dials, hands, straps...
Here's the most recent arrival. Case and dial from Switzerland, the movement is a very clean vintage 6497:
Obviously, I still need to install the hands, trim down the stem and add a steel crown. Straps are on their way--of a suitably military style. With the sharp dial printing and sapphire crystal this one looks really slick, even with the plastic protector over the face!

Good luck, and thanks for the compliments.
