  1. Rotor types and case backs can vary as well
  2. If you are not opposed to used parts try speedtimerkollektion. You can buy used cases in lots. 28.5 mm dial diameter is pretty much a seiko standard size. Pay attention to stem location. It varies

From what I have seen all parts interchange.My guess as to the lack of support is that most people wont spend to fix them.When looking over candidates for cannibalization keep an eye out for ones that don't have worn out crowns, my way of thinking is that a watch that had been wound less has been run less , and is less likely to be worn out.

  5. Spring looks non standard. could it be interfering with something?
  6. A Franken .The movement and dial came out of a badly trashed pot metal case.Placed into a case that came with a badly trashed movement. Not original, but attractive and serviceable.

  10. Nice paint on the miata.Red doesn't like too much sunshine. Obviously you garage it and maintain it as well as you do your watches.
