  4. Tks for the kind words.. I have a little problem with data disc my watchsmith say they is simple to settle
  5. Below another my project 1680 with phong insert..
  6. @Automatico if I understand (my English sometime is not so good) You want suggest me the part or entire movement for have no data quick set like the 1570/75.. I have bought the eta 2879 because I have read that have the same hight of the 2813 (that was inside the jkf ) Than I have asked to my watchsmith to remove the quick data set, he found a solution: by file the tooth on a part of the movement (I don’t remember the name of this part that have two tooth) The first tooth is the position for the quick data set the second tooth is the position for set the hands.. So now when I pull out crown, The stem go directly to the second tooth for set the hands..
  7. In Italy we have an adage that says : “blu e marrone perfetto cafone” That we can translate “blue & brown perfect oafish” Haha That mean that the blue and brown don’t match each other .. But despite this adage I saw many example of this match color in fashion outfit..
  8. Yes you are right , but the black insert is worst .. I try to make insert brown I have try several (cousinsuk, woresaleoutlet , Cartel) on the oven but they turn reddish not chocolate ..the next week when will arrive the Slay insert kiss four I try again over the oven..but I have not hope in the result
