I've been looking everywhere for a case and have had zero luck. I'm hoping someone can help. It doesn't have to be gold, as I can have it replated but I'd really like to find a case for this. Please help! I took measurements of everything. I guess the larger dial is making it challenging??

Yeah, good luck with that. There's not a snowball's chance you'll get a case without lots of patience and eBay searching. I've overhauled four watches with these wonderful movements, and they were all in high-end heavy gold cases. If you have a movement without a case that means you got the movement from someone who was more interested in getting the $13 of gold out of the case than being patient and selling the complete watch for $2k+ to someone with a clue.

You **might** stumble across a complete watch with a blown movement, but it's going to take time, patience, and money. Good luck. Sorry to harsh your buzz.

Yeah, I figured as much. I don't mind paying, I just can't find a case that'll work, especially with that "oversize" dial.
