Looking for a Donor Watch!

Post by ezcheese » Sat Feb 13, 2010 2:53 pm

Hey folks! John had a brilliant idea. We are looking for someone to donate a watch case that you might have laying around. You would score extra brownie points if the watch has a cushion case of some sort. The idea is to have Brian D take it and do kind of a feasibility study on doing the cases where he works. Reverse engineering at its finest. :ugeek:

So, who's gona be the brave soul!? :salute:

I've got plenty of watches I don't wear. What did you have in mind? :think:

I have a ancient Elgin I found a while back. I'll try and get some pics up. Think it has a cushion case and hidden lugs.

Really, just about anything would do, maybe Brian can chime in and suggest something in particular? :think:

If it's a cushion case and has hooded lugs, that's a bonus! :bananastoner:

Just looked at it again. Lugs are short, but not hooded. Will try and take some pics, but getting ready for a vball tourney today.

Either a donor case or Graeme's drawing would do. Case would be a little easier so we can physically check the dimensions such as angles, radius, and other things.

If I have a drawing when we check and get the dim. then write down and put them on there. Pretty much a complete reverse engineer. Normally we get a print and program from there.

Nice!

Does anybody know the required internal dimensions of a watch case in order to properly house the Seiko 6R15 and ETA 2824-2 movements? :think:

Late to everything today, sorry I missed out on the weekend fun. :mrgreen: I can take some measurements inside the sumo case Derek. I'll give it a shot tonight. :thumbsup:

PING me if interested. I've got a non-functioning "Clama" dive watch with a cushion case (nice to get it back if I can), and have a 7548 case I could donate (nice if I can get it back, but not necessary).

Just PM me if interested.

If Derek cant use it, it`s yours Dom. I bought this brand spanking new some years ago and beat the shit out of it thrue the years, its still ticking along nicely but the bezel is loose and falls off if you`re not carefulle. Think I`ve lost the box and papers, but Ill have a looks see when the time comes.

Hey Derek, I meant to post this up but I've been too damn busy lately to catch up on posting (work gittin in the way and all). I'm willing to let the Seiko 6309-7049 be used on two conditions: 1) I get it back :mrgreen: and 2) somebody qualified removes the movement first. I might give it a shot (always wanted to remove a movement). So as long as #1 is met, the cushion case sweetness that is the Seiko 6309 I humbly offer unto thee. :gift: :mrgreen:

Hey guys as Noah is really putting a lot of options out there for a Seiko cushion case shouldn't we try to push ourselves just a little and choose something slightly different?

For sure a cushion case. Just my 2 cents.

This one has always been my favorite cushion case shape
