I found an Arnex hunter case pocket watch with a broken lid that has a great running Unitas 6498 movement. I was thinking about making a wrist watch out of it.
I was reading a post on the issues someone had with the older version of the 6498 fitting into the new wrist watch cases (I read that many of the new cases are made for 6498-1s). I saw some cases that said they were for Unitas 6498, and others that said they were for 6498-1. My movement also "Y3". I tried to find out information on when it may have been made and was hoping the Y3 may offer a clue, but the only thing I found was another pocket watch that was a Y3 and the seller said it was from 1992.
Any thoughts or advice on where to get a good case and dial? Is this movement worth the cost of making a watch out of it? Any other issues that folks may have had would also be appreciated.
