Combining Movements for a Better IWC Regulateur Rep

Recommended Posts

The IWC Regulateur is an unique watch, with elegant design, as the rest of Portuguese family.


A review of the modified 6497 movement in the rep is shown here:

Although the modification is not perfect, is going to me a much more reliable movement is comparison with other movements (Daytona, Portuguese seconds @6).

The problem of this rep is the back. Follows a picture of the back of the gen:


Here the back of the rep:


The number of flaws is uncountable. In addition, no engraved text, stickers are employed. Even there is a spelling mistake (FSAT instead of FAST).


Therefore, one member asked me to study the possibility of combining two movements. The new movement (on the right) is much closer to the gen. But it has not the modification that moves the hour hand from the centre to 12 position.


That new movement is not perfect. It is a pity
