    Another project starting point.. A Seiko 7546.

    So with completing my 6309 project last week.. i've been eyeing off the orange dial versions of the 7548 divers. I've got access to a 7548 case, and hand set.. and a 6306 cushion case and hand set. With the movement from this watch i'm a dial and chapter ring away from having an orange diver.

    I COULD use the chapter ring still in the 7548 case we used to pull the dial from.. but i don't think the black chapter ring and orange dial looks as good..

    Anyway, here's a pick to start us off. This project might take a fair bit longer because i don't think orange dials are exactly the easiest thing to come by.. i'm sure someone has one in their stash somewhere though.. or one with a buggered movement..

    And a pic of my completed 6309 because everyone loves pictures.. and for those who missed the last thread.

    Yes i know, i can either pull them from one of the 6309-7290's on my desk or (preferably) use the Kanji day and date from the 6306 at my watchmaker. I want to use his 6306 case also so pulling the day and date wheels from that seems a good idea. That's if he'll let me have them haha.

    Haha because i'm doing what everyone else reckons they should of done from the beginning! :P

    I also like that (at least for the first one..) they are relatively cheap to do if you can scrounge the parts.. and they look really cool. If you didn't know any better you'd think my 6309 was original, and even if you did know better you still would have to take a second or third look because of its 6309 hands.

    I want to find an original orange dial and chapter ring.. use a set of 7548 hands my watchmaker has left over from the first conversion and chuck it all into a 6306/9 case so that it's all authentic parts in a combination that *could have* been done back in the day. I know it's modding.. but it's not as bad as getting a dial from here.. some random hands from here.. some crazy bezel insert from over there.. i'm not really into that sort of modding. I like that these are still 100% authentic.

    SO where can one find a replacement movement for a 7546? I have been trying to get mine to work with no luck

    My 6309-729A with orange dial.
    Would consider swapping for the black version, but must be in great condition.

    Keep your eyes open on ebay for the Seiko quartz with a day and date function. Then look at the case back and see if it has 7546 on it. Or just keep searching Seiko 7546 and you'll find one. They are around.

    Did you want to swap me, or the guy above you?

    I have a black dial for one of these but it's an aftermarket.. much like i assume yours would be?

    Edit: I actually don't know if it's aftermarket or not now that i think about it. I think it is, however it is brass and has dial feet. Would it be original then? Possibly?
