tonight I put together this one from NOS stock parts. Measuring in at 38.5 MM across the case it is one I never came across before.
The biggest challenge was having to customize a stem\crown to fit correctly. For those not familiar with Timex, the crowns are press fitted to the stem.
So replacing just the crown is not an option.
here is the breakdown:
NOS - #33 Movement
Used - Day Date Wheels
NOS - Case
NOS - Stem
NOS - Hands
Used - Case hold down clip
Used - Rotor and screws
I call it the "Classroom Clock". You know, just like the one you stared at all through HS just waiting for the bell to ring!
Very interesting case, I'm trying to visualize what it would look like with a strap or bracelet. Big shiny hunk of steel. Turned out really nice. Stem hacking, hmm? That's what seems to get me in trouble. I do, however, have an example where someone managed to fit a Benrus crown to a Timex stem. I have no idea how they managed it, but I sure did a double take when I first saw it!
