    Buy either the LF or the BP 16610 as noted above and swap out the dial and crystal, or just remove the cyclops. Pretty simple mods.

      The 16610 and 14060 are completely different watches. Different case and size, different dials and size ....

      If you like an "oldschool" No Date Sub - go for a 5513.
      Source a Cartel / JKF 5513 and source dial and so on and than modify and rework the case to become a real nice GEN looking No-Date. The best choice.
      Yeah, I know, that’s what I meant, there is a size difference between the dials...

      Thanks for the advice. The 5513 sure is nice but atm I’m looking for something more modern to my collection

        Thanks! That’s a great advice. I had completely forgotten raffles...

          This one will fit I believe, have to glue new feet on. No big deal

            Oddly enough, I just had to glue a foot on to a no date sub dial I bought recently.

                    There are other dealers who are not TDs here but are TDs over at RWG.

                      Send a link to any watch to a TD they should be able to get it

                        Also when you put the raffles dial (look of the 14060 dial) into a BP / JF ... case for a 16610 = it would not look like a 14060 :-(
                        The cases are too different and also the bezel.
                        The complete look is different - the 16610 looks bulky compared to the 14060
                        time goes by so slowly ...

                          True but I think it would satisfy many of us. Close enough for rock n roll.

                            This one doesn't look bad, save yourself the modding. Michelle is a TD here. Gen 14060 never came without lug holes but that can always be fixed.

                            Whatcha think Nur-Uhr ?

                              It could be a trial to source this watch from Michelle (Silix)
                              On the pictures itself the rep 14060 does not look good.

                              The watch needs some work / moddings
                              - case reshape (look at the profile) and lug reshape
                              - lug holes = as you mentiones correctly
                              - bezel reshape -> too fat, should be thinned

                              Than this watch could look good. But I am not sure cause of dimension, Silix write it has a diameter of 41 ...
                              But for USD 258,- it would be a nice project.
                              time goes by so slowly ...
