    Where to source a 6538?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for a decent 6538 for my first rep. I don't really want to mod it as I'm not too sure how, so I'm hoping to find one that is decent out of the box. Where can I find a good model? Budget is about $500.

    Thanks

    These come sometimes up on M2M, although $500 is a tight budget.

      Silix Prime, although not accurate still an option for the budget, parts can be upgraded and what not.

      Hope this helps

        My Silix budget 6538

        Silix 6538 base
        Reshaping and brassing of the bezel
        Manodeoro gilt dial
        Slay handset
        HW sternkreuz plexi
        Gen spec fat bar
        Dg2813 mouvement
        Aged stock insert

        8mm Athaya crown soon installed, waiting for a 3,6 mm drill

        The main issu is the lug holes which are to close to the edge on the last silix base, it miss matérial to make chanfreins.

          Ask member Hungaryrolex -- he builds them.

          All I ask is a tall ship -- and a load of contraband to load it with.

            Hi buddy ... no need to wait for a 3.6mm drill ... just call me
            I already have 3.6 drill bits and M4x0.35 thread taps so everything you need to mod your case for the Athaya big crown tube we could make all this next weekend

            BTW ... chanfreins (French) = chamfers (English)
            1 - A/6538 Burford Milsub
            2 - sorry ... that build is classified
            3 - 16800 Comex Rolex - dated 1984
            4 - Heavily modded 16610 cheapie
