    Pilots' & Military watches
    This is the 2nd flieger I have built. The first one was more of a typical FL23883 with a B dial similar to some of the Laco offerings. It has a ETA 2824-2 Top grade movement which is of course an auto. For this one I wanted something different so I went with a case that's more similar to a...
  2. Mickey Mouse Diver Project?

    Dive watches
    I saw a thread on this great forum where a member put a Mickey Mouse dial in a SKX and made an awesome Mickey diver.

    Watchmaking
    I was wondering if any of you have built your own watchmaking desks? Or if you know where I would be able to find plans to make one? Also, if you have any pictures of your current setup (i.e. work station) that would be very helpful. Thanks guys -Ian

  8. newbie question: Can I build my own Rolex from spare parts?

    Rolex & Tudor
    I'm pretty new to the forum and in a steep learning curve. I was wondering, if I can find a movement and the other appropriate parts, and assuming I have the basics of watch repair down, (for example Level 1 and 2 from TZ online school) could I just build my own Rolex from different parts?
