    Meranom dumped quite a lot of "minor defect" surplus sandwich dials on the site a few months ago. I managed to snap up 2 each of the blue, aubergine and orange(gold) before ThePossumKing arrived and bought the lot lol

    They were only available for a limited run of 120 and 420 cases, so I'm unsure if/when they will be available again.

    Wait, so it's called a sandwich dial because of the way the dial is made -- "sandwiching" the pieces together?

    I always thought it was called this because the 12/3/6/9 triangles looked like a sandwich cut into four pieces!!

    Yes Dash, because of the "sandwiching" of the dial, lol

    Which makes for interesting times when going to use one as the extra thickness must be taken into account by either using a dateless movement with extended length hour and minute canon's, or the way I prefer which is to use a 2416b movement and remove the entire date complication, leaving the needed extra height of the canon's.

    I wondered how you would fit it in. So a 2416B works with the date-wheel removed and that's all. I would like to fit this, Mario.

    Hey Barry

    Not just the date wheel, the entire complication plate and associated parts as well. I'm not familiar with the dial you have shown so I really don't know what thickness you are dealing with.

    As for the weather we have been having a very mild Winter so far, it hasn't rained in 17 days, but we are expecting a few drops tomorrow. I hope things are going well for you.

    090 case with a matte finish, bezel in cold steel & plain black insert from Dr Seikostain, seconds hand - blued steel Amphibian type from Meranom.

    Dial and hour / minute hands - 3D printed in stainless steel. It was not simple to get these hands to fit, lots of sanding and manipulation required. Unfortunately, my applying of luminous compound is far from up to scratch, so what you see here is the first prototype.

    What a time to be alive!
    Dare I suggest white hands and blue markers for the lume?

    I read the other day that Parnis bezel inserts fit the Vostok bezels that use SKX inserts (are you still following this? ;) ). The outer diameter is the same but the inner diameter is slightly smaller than the SKX inserts. This means relatively cheap ceramic inserts. So who of you tried this? Would love to see some pictures.
