    movement transfer to new case

    I do not work on watches. I was given a Belair diver with a swiss 2824 movement, but I don't care for the dial. I can live with the case, but I wouldn't mind purchasing a whole new case, dial, crystal, hands, etc. to have someone put the movement in. I was wondering where to order something decent aftermarket or maybe people sell watches that need a new movement that the 2824 will fit in. Just looking for some advice. Thanks.

    You can just put a different dial in it. That's very easy.

    I was thinking that. I guess I could measure it. I never found anything saying what size dial it takes. I assume I should have someone do it that knows how. I saw some nice looking dials on eBay

    Not all dials are standard sizes but typically you can find one close. I have found in general dials are about the size of the crystal but that's not a hard fast rule.
