Hi All

I almost have a complete 404 in parts (with some to spare) and am wondering whether it is worth combining them to create another watch.

I think all I am missing is a crown and screws for the case back, though a new crystal would probably help too.

Given the condition of the dial is this worthwhile and would it be blasphemous to consider using these parts to create a modern interpretation of what a 404 from Rado might look like today?

I'd appreciate your thoughts, criticisms, observations, general advice before deciding whether to commence on this project.
