I have a load of New old stock ESA 9157 Movements and fancy doing something with them, maybe an RLT Spaceview, watch this space  

Something like this would give me less cutting and I like it a lot  

At this rate I won't be allowed to purchase one. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the final version. Later, William

Now you're talking! Put me on the list!

Will do Dave, have some cases coming this week just hope the movements will fit. I'm working on making a chapter ring for them, can't decide if to remove the calendar but I may have to, we will see, more news soon.

Sorry Boss, in my excitement my manners appear to have escaped me.  I of course meant add me to the list, please and thank you!

If it's to be a spaceview, wouldn't you have to remove the calendar? (excuse my ignorance).

Making your own chapter rings sounds like this could be a special one and special build - plenty of pics along the way please!

What sort of case are you thinking of Roy?

40mm steel, that's all I can say at the moment. Waiting for some cases to arrive which I'm hoping these electric movements will fit. If not I'll have to find something else.

I'm really excited about this one. Still don't know how I'm going to do it as all I have at the moment is the movements but I've got loads of ideas. These movements are bigger than the ones commonly used today but smaller than the Unitas, so just hoping they fit the cases I've bought :thumbsup:

We've every faith in you Roy!

If you're going the Spaceview route, does that mean you're thinking of printing onto the crystal?

Maybe Dave, I really don't know yet, not got that far. It is a possibility :thumbsup:

@Roy, I've got some NOS 9159 movements...that have no calendar 'cause they were for the Gruen (and a few others) below, but otherwise same as 9157/8

Gruen Electronic (ESA 9159)

That Gruen looks really nice Paul. The I've got well over a hundred NOS 9157 movements. I will just remove the calendar. Got so many ideas for these. I can't wait to start :)

Are you going to open up any of the top plates @Roy? i.e. skeletonise it?
