  2. The tutone case and bracelet parts for sale on the Trading Zone recently made me wonder how much a 'first class' tutone replica 16613 type sub-ma-reenner would cost to put together using mostly new parts, not counting labor. 'First Class' = solid gold and swiss ETA. New ST case, bezel, bracelet etc: Case...$175. Tutone SS/14K oyster...$895 SS/18K...$1250. Bezel...$455 Insert...$40. Used genuine crown...$100/$150 Case tube...$25. Swiss ETA...$200 more or less. Dial...genuine...$400+/- aftmkt…$200+/-. Miscellaneous parts, spring bars, crystal, gaskets, hands replica clasp etc...$200+/-. Total.: About $2500...with SS/14K bracelet and $125 for crown. About $2800 for SS/18k bracelet. Too much imho, especially with SS/18K bracelet. What would it sell for in a year or two? Maybe $2000. Maybe not. A loss of around $1000. Parts I have on hand: New swiss ETA 2824 or 2836. Cost about $65 a few years ago. New aftmkt 295C crystal and gasket. About $40. Used gold 7mm crown and new ST case tube (if I can find the crown). Around $65 for both a while back. Complete, like new, full length oys tutone bracelet without hoods but do not remember if SS/14K or SS/18K...$700 iirc. Clasp, spring bars, gaskets etc...$50 +/-. Around $900 +/-. Parts I would need: ST case...$175. ST bezel/insert...$495 (!!). Dial/hands...$300 +/-. Bracelet hoods...around $100. Total of around $1100. Total cost probably around $2000. Still a lot of $$. What would it sell for in a year or two? About the same...$2000. No loss maybe. The ST bezel for $455 bothers me though. I could go with a stainless steel 16610 model but everyone in town has one. Including me. Most of them reep-lickas. Mine too.

  7. Thanks Mike... Just needed a push, I've just tried your method!
  8. There are a ton of build threads about 6542s, what parts fit with which cases, etc. There is no one “right” answer. Have fun reading!

  12. I'm thinking you want P46189- 4.0mm x 2.5mm. But you need to measure the top of the DW pushers to make sure that they're 4.0mm.
  13. Thank you alligoat, I would rather buy from Cousins cause Im in the EU, I checked their website they seem to have it but I am not sure which model I should get. maybe this: P46190 ? https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/classical-screw-in-ss
