My buddy and I have 2 ex-RAF WWII Omega 6b/159 wristwatches w/ the infamous aluminum case. Both cases have broken lug tips and cannot be repaired.

We need someone to make 2 new cases out of stainless steel to the exact dimensions of the original ones. We will provide one of the original ones to get the dimensions from.

If someone wants to take on this task, please PM or email me. My email is wrs111445 at yahoo dot com.

Thanks,
Bill

See a very good jeweler. They might be able to rebuild the lugs. It is possible, even in Aluminum. (Solid bar might be the best option in this case.) Aluminium cases are rare and valued.

I agree with what Eeeb said and add: Try to locate a specialist welding service in the aircraft industry. Those guys are usually really good at doing little things with a TIG welder, can probably build up the lugs enough to reshape them. Most airports have small service and repair shops around them. Then a jeweller can do the re-shaping.
