    Nautilus date wheel project

    Some of you might know, im a hard core Patek fan!


    I bought the PF nautilus when was first lunched, with all its faults the overall case quality convinced me....


    Anyway what's this thread about?


    CORRECT DATE WHEEL FOR THE NAUTILUS & AQUANAUT !!!




    PF, BP, MKF all use the same miyota so the DW would be the same for all of them... if you are interested in such thing please let me know, i will take note of you all and see from there how this project will develop.




    This is now complete : www.datewheel.info

    Compatibility of this DW so far is:

    PF Nautilus
    BP Nautilus
    KMF Aquanaut
    BP Aquanaut.
    JJF Nautilus (order the specific one from menu)

    A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure !

        That's one thing that puts me off from Nautilus and Aquanauts. I would be in for a couple.

          Definitely in. Just don't understand why the other factories aside from BP can't get this right :-/

          If this kicks off will definitely get my Naut ordered!

            BP never got it right. Only factory that did get it right was v6f on the sw200/2824 clone.

                  I'd also be in...what are the main barriers to making it happen?

                        Keylog74 This sounds like an great project, hope that this goes well.
                        Some info on the way that might help, when I did my Nautilus build a year ago or so, based on a v6f/SW200 watch and put an 2892 eta inside I did try out a few different dial for it and in the end I used the mkf v.4 blue dial for it, I noticed that one problem with the different makers was that the datewheel window was of different size and also placed different so that might be one problem that will accour to get one datewheel overlay to fit different watches from the makers even though they are using the same movement.
                        It's not a huge difference but it's there and if you want it so near perfect as possible you have to factor that in and might be an good info to know.
                        And I agree that the v6f/sw200 watch is the only one that has been close to the gen regarding both the datewheel font and datewheel window size and placement.
                        The compairing that I did with the mkf dial that I used and v6f/sw200 clearly showed that it had an larger datewheel window and placed more towards the center of the dial, it's again, not by much but enough to make it look bad.

                        Here is an example with the v6f/sw200 datewheel mounted on the eta2892 movement and the mkf v.4 dial, you can clearly see what I mean.

                          I’m in man. What order of magnitude budget is required to get a few prototypes designed, printed and then fitted to a watch for review?

                            I’m in for this as well. I’ve been thinking about doint it locally but never got the time to invest So I’m very very interested.
