I've scoured the usual sources, including the ETA Customer Service site, but I can't seem to find a cross reference for the dial feet locations on an ETA 2783 compared with the 2824 or 2836 movements. Many aftermarket dials are advertised as fitting these latter movements and if I can determine whether the location and diameter of their dial holes match my 2783, then I'm sure to succeed with an aftermarket dial.
The dial feet holes on the 2783 are at (eye-balling) 11 minutes and 41 minutes, and center-to-center diameter of 24.0mm.
Any suggestions for a data source? Anyone have a 2824 or 2836 sitting on their bench and their calipers close at hand and bounce me a reply with a measurement as above?
Thanks as always.
Thanks guys, I've done a few watches, and I hardly ever break them now . I've been enjoying servicing old Russian watches, cheap and cheerful. But I was curious to see how different clocks are. I just took a look on the bay at Smith's they look great. There's one listed close to me (so cheap postage) and only $aud20. It's listed as a mantle but the winding key is at the back not on the face?
