Picked up the Swiss case from eBay, brand new but from the sixties I believe. Unfortunately can’t source a 10 1/2 mechanical movement so fitted a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The dial is a genuine 1963 uncirculated half penny which I machined down to .5 mm and then silvered.
I made it for my wife's birthday who was born in 1963. She absolutely loves it
Just normal dial silvering compound
Reviving a bit of an old thread that I found during search - I've been looking at the Chinese set as well, but I have a question for the "hand-winders" on the thread - how do you deal with automatic mainsprings? When I do hand wind, it's from the outside in (the reverse of how the spring comes out of the barrel) and the split ends / extra pieces of automatic ends are especially tricky. I feel like there's no good hand-winding technique for these springs and winders are the only option.
