Custom Military Marriage Watch - 21 Jewels Timex movement

#1 Post by JerseyMo » Thu Oct 22, 2015 3:48 pm

What do you get when you mix a prototype Military dial, #74 Timex movement, screw down case and stainless steel band?

Well this of course!

Only adjustment I had to make was to shave down the stem tube to allow the set lever to engage the stem. Other than that it was just matching up the parts. The watch has been running "dead nuts" on time.

Thanks, I'm playing around with an all 1950 US Time \Timex version now.
