    Perhaps the lug holes' location and/or depth are slightly wrong on the 3k rep

      I’m curious to know if anyone has tried a ZF base 324 movement transplant yet. Anyone care to chime in?

        Why particularly the ZF case?

          Because the bezel profiles are consistent with the newer model 5167 (thinner bezel)

                That's a tough job. Would it cost as much as a new ZF?

                      How does the rep movement look after being properly cleaned?

                          Late to the party but I’d be great if you can answer some questions please.

                          1 did the gen dial fit into position into the 3k movement without the need to cut the the feet.

                          2. Does the gen dw fit correctly the the rep movement

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

                              Thank you, one more thing. Have you tried Gen date wheel and rep Dial? does it align correctly? trying to understand if the rep dial is gen speck.

                                Never try rep dial on gen dw.
                                But my friend try 3k dial with zf base. The Date alignment is perfect.
