    Thank you. Indeed the minute hand stands out, that was more of a personal choice regarding the divers style I was going for.

    Thanks. All parts were sourced on eBay. I will provide the links later on.

    Thank you. In regards to the minute hand. Yes I wanted it to be readily identifiable. I was going for a divers style orange hand, which is relied upon heavily for keeping track of dive time. The larger hand makes it easily identifiable underwater and the orange color is the last the loose its hue/color underwater.
  5. Just wanted to share that I finished building my first watch. It runs on a Miyota 8215. Here is a picture.
  6. Hi everyone! I am currently in the process of building my first watch. I have sourced the parts from ebay and decided to go with a Miyota 8215 movement. I believe I have everything I need, have learned a lot from watching the videos , however I am still scratching my head on a white movement ring that the Miyota came with (picture attached). Is this the dial spacer ring or does it function as both a movement ring and dial spacer? The case I purchased comes with a movement ring (however I have to purchase the clamps and screws, which I have already found on Esslinger). If this is not a dial spacer, I am assuming I would need one so the date ring doesn’t get stuck, however I am uncertain if the dial spacer is totally necessary. Thanks in advance! Guido
  7. Hello to everyone from the community! Been collecting watches for about 20 years and recently decided to build my own. Waiting anxiously for the last parts to arrive and hope to learn a lot from this great forum. Best, Guido
