    Where to find a custom 6498 watch dial?

    I've been googling around in hopes of finding someone who makes custom dials without much luck. Can anyone suggest where to find a custom maker of dials? I'm looking for a new dial for a Chinese 6498 movement watch. Between 38.1 and 39.1mm.

    Thanks!

    (1) ebay, look for ebay seller erkahund or contact him directly (search for Kemmner here on WUS)
    (2) watchdials.com
    (3) Cador
    (4) Richard Bethge & Söhne
    (5) Custom Watch Dials
    (6) Deutsche Zifferblatt Manufaktur GmbH
    (7) Schätzle
    (8) Kent Parks

    I can highly recommend Cador (but it will ask a lot of time/patience..........and money).

    I am sure other members will chime in with more sources.

    Thanks Mike. I'm still in search of this dial. Roland Kemmner did write back with some nice ones but now he isn't replying to email. And I might have another lead. But I thought I'd ask here too. Anyone have a dial and hands similar to the one below that they would sell me? This is to fit a 6498 movement. Thanks!

    Tourby also sometimes have plain guilloche dials on eBay - I think they also have one like the type you are after.

    Barnaby, thanks for the tourby lead. I tried emailing them some weeks ago about a dial with no response but I'll keep an eye on their ebay shop.

    Bigvatch. I've looked at the dials at ofrei but I haven't found any that match what I'm looking for.

    Kemmner when he first replied to my email sent me some images of dials he had in stock and one of them is close enough and I wanted to buy it from him but unfortunately he stopped responding. This is the one I wanted to buy:



    Does anyone know another source for this dial? I would want to get one with black hands rather than blue.

    R. Kemmner should come back to you if you can be patient. He seems to be in and out from what I've read and experienced.

    BTW, that dial looks pretty good to me.

    I'll have to wait for Kemmner then. He is still my best lead and I am getting more and more fond of the dial he offered.
