I was entertaining the notion of making a project watch resembling the WWII Hamilton watch issued to the US Marine Corps.
My thoughts were to go one of two ways on this. The potentially more direct way would seem to be taking an existing watch, say like the MkII Cruxible and replacing the face and hands.
The second way would be starting from scratch.
In either case, it would be necessary to get the dial redone and perhaps have hands made (since these seem to be an uncommon design).
Just curious what thoughts might occur as to the difficulty of doing this from those with more experience.
Any input would be appreciated up to and including, “Never gonna happen”.
