    Gen spec 5711 dw project for the 3K movement

    And so, I have started this project with the experts blackboxes and Edgematic

    This will be a gen spec replacement datewheel to be produced for the 3K movement and the reference datewheel was taken from one of the gen 5711s in my collection. Currently, we have completed the high-res, high precision scan. We are also in the process of finalizing the design of the base disc and gear teeth for the datewheel. The 3D printed prototype will be produced and test fitted before production begins, and alignment/refinement work will be involved to ensure that the datewheel fits the movement as precisely as possible. Even for the gen, the datewheel fitment will vary slightly from watch to watch, so please do not expect perfection. We will settle "highly acceptable" fitment.

    If you are keen, please watch this space. One of us will update as the project progresses.

    It starts here: The high res scan.

    More to follow.
    Today is the Tomorrow you were worried about Yesterday.

                            Even if it is 98% acceptable fitment, I will take it
