    Empty Watch Cases for Custom Builds?

    ***EDITED*** PHOTOS ADDED

    I need to source about 150 cases for an upcoming build. In particular, I'm looking for Seiko Tuna style ones with the stainless steel shroud. I have movements, dials, and hands. The cases would have to be complete and include bezels, inserts, and crowns.

    I've looked in the usual places (Ofrei, Esslinger, Helenarou, Alibaba) without luck. I can get assembled watches and replace the components I suppose, but it's a waste of time and money so I thought I'd ask you guys. And yes, they have to be this particular style. I know there are suppliers of others but I can't use them.

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have!
