    A2836 GMT for 2836 ETA swap

    Hello,

    ​​​​​I habe a rolex explorer 2 with a broken 2836 gmt movement. As I cannot find a replacement, i worked out the idea to swap the Asian movement for a swiss eta 2836.

    I am no watchmaker so i would love to hear your input. I know that the swiss eta 2836 has no gmt function. I would like to attach the gmt hand and keep it nonfunctional as I never use it.

    Would it be a direct swap or do I need to take other things into Account? Pinion height etc.?would it even possible to attach the gmt hand onto the eta?

    Thanks for your input
