Rat Rod PW/WR conversion-Big motor little case-how to wind & set??
This is one of those hope to make something of it bay purchases. Woww a cheap Illinois!.
Ok-the bad-2 cracked jewels & more-a bushing replacement for a jewel in the past it was down to 14....
Got 2 in that I had in my spares pile & it is running albeit cranked over reg & a bit cranky on positions-but not bad. The original case was a dog & the watch is case set / wind. And its a sidewinder-watch conversion??. I machined a case I had a tad deeper/ wider to accept the behemoth-I love how it just barely fits. But now the actual hard part....
I can use the small winder pictured to wind / set but to keep it in place & the click up down
I don't think I could solder any new tube on this cheap Chinese case. I'm considering a short stem similar to the pictured-with a groove for a retainer clip & a small spring behind to push into the watch. A push me pull you setup.
I'd wager someone has done this before. before I cob a solution any ideas??
