    Reasonable custom casemaker somewhere?

    Dear members:

    I need 2 identical, ex-RAF, WWII Omegas re-cased in SS or aluminum. Does anybody know who can do that for a reasonable price? If you do, PLEASE PM me.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    No, it can not be done for a 'reasonable' price. Best to find donor cases.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    There are very few folks doing this sort of work anymore. I'd probably try Pete Wuipschard in Florida as a first stop.
