Has Anyone Seen Any Watch Cases That Can Do This ?

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I saw some amazing pictures sent to me in Facebook where a watchmaker has put a key-wind / key-set old fusee into a wristwatch case.

He has made a near sliding door on the back crystal for winding, and the case has a hinged front crystal for setting.

I'd love to try and do this with one of my really nice old pocket watch movements - but I've never seen a watch case with a hinged front crystal before. Does anyone know if such watch cases exist ?

I had a good look around - panerai watches are really expensive - so using an existing watch as a parts supply isn't going to work. I'm trying to track down fake panerai (with a compatible case) but haven't found one in a hunter configuration. Thanks guys, I'll keep looking [emoji3]
