Post an interesting snapshot of what you are working on. Wether you are a pro photographer, or taking snaps on your phone, it does not matter - we love watch movements and we want to see them and talk about them.
Can anyone tell me the correct size (length and diameter) or send me a link for the correct spring bar size for a Rolex Daytona?
I just want to double check before i end up with a mountain of redundant spring bars from Cousins.
the 532 was limited production for the military, only a few thousand pieces made, and they were only made for the marines with the white dial. If you google search USMC elgin 532 you will see it. I have seen black dial versions but I believe they were for civilian use. The watch was quickly replaced with the 539 since the 532 was a non hacking movement. The 539/ and other A-11 movements started the whole military hacking movement wave. It has since been the standard for any military watch.
