    Beautiful!

    And is that the TC5508 case? I'm having trouble keeping up with which cases everyone has been using for their various BSH gilt-relief dial builds.

    And, a gilt-relief dialed big crown watch for #bigcrownthursday .


    True, it's not the gilt-relief dial that all the cool kids are sporting these days, but I like it just the same.

    But you can use Seiko hour and minute. The problem is the second hand....and itís red!

    Goodness gracious post 504 already! I thought about big crown for about a 30 seconds. But the coffeemaker wasn't on when I went in the kitchen and that messed me up.

    So instead I went for compliance.

    I call it the Jubilee Perplorer.

    Attachment 13955033

    36mm Explorer style case, ETA 2836 clone, Raffles hands, dial from China. I've got less than $200 in this build.
    Case finish is decent. Jubilee bracelet is meh.

    I'm sure I should have posted this somewhere else, but since I hang mostly in this thread I felt like sharing. Have a great Thursday brothers!
    Congrats, you posted in the right place! I like the budget build. Hopefully soon er than later I'll have my own full parts build also. Source for the case?

    I got it off ebay "UNBRANDED VINTAGE STYLE 36MM STEEL EXPLORER SMOOTH BEZEL WATCH CASE FIT ETA 2836".

    A couple words of warning though. First, the case back and crown are unbranded, but there is a logo etched into the crystal which I didn't notice when I purchased. Second, the movement spacer is garbage and didn't fit the movement, and even when I got it on, it spaced the dial much too far away and the hands would never have gone on. Right now the movement is held in only by the clamps, which thankfully are the correct length to hold it securely, and I'm using the dial spacer that came with the movement.

    Still though, for $50 for the case, it's not bad.

    I had the same problems with that case the movement holder is to blame for difficulty.

    Glad it wasn't just me... I had one of those moments where throwing it all across the room would have felt cathartic.

    But what the cool kids don't know is you have the OG homage that all homages are compared to... at least here.
