Hello, first post and I'm striving to make it a useful one!

I'm quite interested in watchmaking and the possibility of assembling a watch myself form scratch. Finding a source for a proper case, and not an outright replication at that, is quite the challenge. I went through the entire Cases sources. The thread of threads., studied every link, and noted all the known manufacturers/sellers of watch cases to save the next ape from emulating me. :-!

Here is what I found:

Otto Frei The most popular and well known resource
erkahund Roland Kemmner (previously worked for Fricker; sells on eBay infrequently; utilizes German, Swiss and Chinese components;)
SK Watchparts German supplier of Cases
Military Time / Jackson Tse Dot Com (Linking does not work) Panerai "Homages" and individual parts
Getat Chinese Pilot Watch Cases; possibly used the pseudonym "cust_watch" on eBay?

Helena Rou Luminor, Sub, and Hamilton "Homages"
Ickler Custom Cases from Germany
Swiss Made Time eBay seller with Swiss made cases
Fricker Custom made cases from Germany
Orange Watch Company Can possibly supply cases on inquiry
SUG Custom cases from Germany; supplier to Glashuette

Reister & Nittel Custom cases from Germany




If I missed any you may post it in a reply and I'll add it to the list!

Hi, how have you got on with the watchmaking project?

I am just getting started and I am struggling to find a 40mm case for a 6498.

Any ideas?

Do these larger case making firms sell just one or two pieces?

Thanks in advance.
