Machinistīs wrist watch
Hello engine addicted.
I am machining new four cylinder engine but i was so
tired after 3 months of intensive engine machinig that i have decided to have a break.
But what with spare time?
Yes i will try to built my long time dream - Modern quartz movement accommodate in WW2 Trench watch case.
In my drawer i had BULOVA watch dial and famous Swiss ETA 251.262 watch movement bought long long time ago.
First I modified Bulova dial to fit the ETA movement
then I had to assemble 4 hands because for this movement does not exist
hands long enough to fit Bulova dial.
Finally watch case machined from stainless pipe and glass,crowns and strap from ebay.
Believe me or not finished watch cost me 230 EUR. For this price I would have used OMEGA but when I started watch assembling i thought it would cost me no more than 150 EUR.
Anyway I have my own very watch only one in the world.
