6200 and 5513 - a Couple of Recent Projects

Recommended Posts

I've had the pleasure of working on a couple of nice projects recently, with a few more still in the works. I finished these weeks ago but haven't had the time until now to start a thread. I've already posted most of these pictures elsewhere but figured I'd consolidate them.

First off, a gilt 1965 5513. I made this one as a birthday gift for my dad. Specs are:

Cartel case, reshaped crownguards

Reshaped cartel crown, still waiting on an Athaya crown in the mail

Clarks gold hands

Ofrei GS-462 19M crystal

ETA 2836

Barton NATO strap - a per my dad's preference

On the Cartel bracelet

The second watch is a budget-y 6200 "King Sub" that I built for a friend.  Parts are:

Silix case

Raffles gold hands w/ gold lollipop seconds hand

Gilt dial courtesy of... I'm not going to use the same bad joke twice.

Raffles riveted bracelet

Any questions, please ask! Unless you're going to ask where I got a part. In that case consult The Vintage Encyclopedia.

Thanks all :) For anyone interested, the camera is a Ricoh GRII. The most unassuming looking camera in the world, but I honestly don't think I'll ever buy another camera. It's fantastic.

Quick question...when you say it’s a silix case, do you mean that you bought just the case from silix’s website or did you buy the whole watch just for the case?

Thanks in advance
