    Lemania chrono movement in a Valjoux 7750 case?

    Can it be done?

    The dimensions are different....
    the lemania appears to be .5 mm larger in diameter, and .1mm thicker...
    I have the ability to machine the case out if need be....

    I have a 1340 movement in good working order...
    7750 cases are plentiful, lemania case not so much. (at least not that I can find)
    I did a search here, and a various google searches, but have found no cases, or anyone that has attempted it...

    Any thoughts? insight?

    thank you
    Andy

    You can get the dimensions of a 7750.

    You have a 1340, so you can get the dimensions off that.

    Compare them.......

    I have found dimensions, and compared them (briefly)
    I was trying to make sure there wasn't some obvious "pitfall" I had overlooked.
    Thank you

    To resurrect an old thread,
    I tried it.
    The pushers are in a different location and it won't work

    probably the stem also, other than that should be good to go!
