I think I'm finally going to attempt a long-term project since I've pretty much done all the 5513s/6538s/1680s etc. that I could ever want. The reason this will be long-term is because of the gold parts. My goal is a reasonable 16613. So here is where I need the advice -
Which is the best 5-digit base for ETA to start out with? I plan on having it on leather so a bracelet is not an issue. Plans include an *ST gold bezel, Gen gold crown, and Gen insert with Gen ETA and Raffles DWO. So, I guess it really comes down to good ETA hands and dial choice?! Perfection is not the goal, but I am averse to stubby crownguards.
Thanks in advance. Any and all advice is appreciated!
P.S. - please don't tell me to do my research. I know there are dozens of topics and hundreds of posts on this. Just looking for something concise and up to date.
