Would depend on man hours involved so a bit of an unfair question but it did cross my mind as well.

Time will tell.

Are the cases you ordered suitable for the movement Roy?

Assuming they have arrived to answer the question.

Cases arrived yesterday, not had chance to look at them yet.

The cases are no good :( I'll find some that will work it's just going to take a little longer.

This is not so much a suggestion as a question.  As some people clearly don't like the plain, exposed brass and, given that it's also quite time consuming and labour intensive to cut holes in it, would it be possible to replace that plate entirely with a pattern part cut from a hard transparent acrylic/perspex material?  If so, with a display back and an "open" dial, you could then have a watch with the movement completely exposed from the front and the back.

Rich, This would cause even more work as the pivot holes and jewels are on that plate :(

Yep, I guessed that was probably the case but thought it might be possible to just drill the appropriate recesses and pop the jewels into place.  Sounds a lot easier than it is to achieve.  A sort of Top Gear "how hard can it be?" scenario :)
