Paul Newman 6264 improvement suggestions

Recommended Posts

To all vintage daytona wizards, please help me to make improvements to this watch. 

 

The built: 

 

DW case. 

V72, vietnam dial. 

gen plexi

gen crown 

 

Overall I am happy except seeing these pushers stick out so much. Those of you who worked with DW cases, what are my options here if any? 

Installing screw inn pushers I was told by a watchsmith not possible (can't recall the reason). Replacing these pushers with a better aftermarket ones? any experience with that? where to get a set? and most importantly will this do the trick?  anyone who can pull this off in the EU?  

Many thanks.

Nice watch but there are way better VN dials out there than yours. If you don‘t change it at least swap the coronet of the dial with a gen one. Hell of a difference

VN dials are the usual suspects- Phong at jewelryandwatch.com

MQ- vintagewatchesMQ.com

Ruby- Rubyswatches.com

Since you already have a VN dial, why not just get a gen coronet like off an old DJ.

The pushers are a challenge- DW pushers are threaded at 2.5mm x .20 and replacement and gen pushers are 2.5mm x .25. So you'd have to tap the holes and install the new pushers. Maybe Ofrei has the correct pushers, don't know if CousinsUK has them or not.

I can't remember but maybe PD61.701 is the correct pusher.

Thank you alligoat, I would rather buy from Cousins cause Im in the EU, I checked their website they seem to have it but I am not sure which model I should get.  

maybe this: P46190 ?  https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/classical-screw-in-ss

I'm thinking you want P46189- 4.0mm x 2.5mm. But you need to measure the top of the DW pushers to make sure that they're 4.0mm.
