Picked this up with the idea of taking out the Miyota 8215 and installing an ETA 2801. took out the mineral crystal, installed an anti reflective sapphire I ordered from Hong Kong, great quality btw. Had to take of the dial feet, modify the existing movement holder and brushed the case back. The 2801 come out of a Stocker & Yale sandy 490. new hands are from SK Watch parts

45mm case , sapphire domed crystal, hacking 2801 mechanical, Steinhart strap

Boy oh boy Ron, you are on a real tear with all of your new watch builds, and
creations lately ! Very Happy Seems like every time you have an idea in mind that you are
able to make it a reality with all of them too, which is so great. Honestly seems
like each watch pays tribute to classic watch making, and also have a lot of your
own individual, signature ideas within them as well. It's REALLY impressive to
see, and something to be very very proud of Ron. Congratulations ! Just hearing,
and learning about the various different parts within a watch is a lot of fun. Plus
it's not just the cases, or movements, but also things like dial feet, and also the
movement holders that are interesting to hear about too. The modifying of all
of them is neat to find out about as well. So thanks for taking the time to tell,
and show us ! Smile By the way, seeing that movement through that case-back
is beyond cool. Many times we are used to seeing a movement with a rotor,
but this view of the ETA 2801 is special here, and it makes the watch even more
unique. Even the way you brushed the case-back adds that little extra something,
and looks AMAZING ! While the flawless looking dial with it's very beautiful triangle
markers, hash marks, and various numbers make a great team also. ..Especially
when paired with those awesome SK Watch Parts hands. Kemmner Century of Aviation 803574 This is a watch to
appreciate in so many different ways Ron. From the movement, to the case,
Steinhart strap, and even dial feet ! ..Congrats, and I hope you keep enjoying !

Amazing watch, insight, AND pics !
