The full size egi donor cases we have access to are, well, kinda crappy, lugs are short, lug holes are in a bad spot, getting the bezel off and back on with out warping it is next to impossible, I could go on, but you get the point.
This one was made in house everything except the second hand and the movement, while its got a few parts that would be changed to more gen like appearance, it's all made like the gen.
I didn't have any round stock in the required size for the76mm length of the case so it started life as a plate.
This was then turned to the final over all diameter, and the shape of the lugs turned I to the face and back
Then off to the mill to cut out the shape, drill the required holes etc
Once that was done, the bezel, case back, rotation hold down ring and crown guard were made. (Forgot to take images of those processes[GRINNING FACE WITH SMILING EYES])
Once all the parts were made and fitted, some fine tuning was done, cutting in the sharp angle at the lug to case (pain in the butt!) fitting the little brass slide tabs that keep the bezel on and allows it to rotate, cutting the overly complicated crystal, cutting the notches, milling the spring pin holes, setting up the bezel so the markers line up correctly... Fitting the removable movement ring (will accommodate 240's with a 3 piece dial) and getting it to all work together.
Finishing touches, made dial 43mm, markers screw in lug bars, blasting and lightly aging the finish. It all came together to end up like this.
Thanks for taking a look
