    To franken or not to franken...

    I saw around some nice 'antimagnetic' dials within ruined/swapped cases, and some cheap ministry with ugly dials... so I thought to make my 'custom' russian watch!



    What do you think about it?

    Thumbs Up Re: To franken or not to franken...

    Not bad...franken Is it automatic too? It seems only dial to be replaced and usually this "ministry" case includes 2416B movement. I hope it does!
    just above sea level

    Do it, there are so many colourful russian watches I wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway.

    Sorry, I don't think it's a good idea. The dial looks awkward with that case. It would be much better to find a case of similar vintage to the dial, which is in good condition, and use that instead. They're easy to find.

    Thank you for all the opinions... in the end I think Nick is right an Albatros case is much better for this dial than the Ministry.

    @ TZAG yes, movement is the automatic 2416
