  1. Be VERY careful! Back in 1968 my first car was a 1961 Ford Sunliner convertible with power windows. My best friend stuck his head out of the window and hit the button. He was really screaming as I went from 30 mph to about 65 mph looking for trees or mail boxes. Alas, he had no sense of humor.
  2. Boston has a team now? Oh yeah, 2013. I remember them. Bobby Orr wasn't all used up when we got him. The Blackhawks won their last game, but would have needed a miracle to get into the playoffs this season. I grew up with the original 6, no helmets and goalies with no face masks at all. Imagine facing Bobby Hull's slap shot with no head or face protection at all.
  3. And just when my Blackhawks were making their move.
  4. Day 3 without sports. Found a lady sitting on my couch yesterday. Apparently she's my wife. She seems nice... In the U.S. I no longer shake hands not because of the coronavirus, but because of the toilet paper shortage.

    There is no correct caseback for the 6542 which originally is a two piece design. The one you picture for the 6538 is what I used. My dial comes from countless pictures and hours of work. The case I used was the first 'Tiger' case, no longer in production. I'd recommend taking the lower edge on the side of the case down a bit. I took it down with a buffing wheel taking off the sharp edge. It makes it look thinner.

    Building your own would cost about the same depending on how and where you source parts. The ETA 2846 is what I used in one of mine and in the 6204 I built. I like the movement very much. A Brevet + crown would be a nice touch. I'd suggest genuine Rolex spring bars. I hope that the bezel is dark blue, not black, and red. Rolex did not make a 'coke' 6542 that I know of.
