          Thanks confirming the ETA fit of Ruby’s case. So the stem height is correct too? Do you know if the case takes a 29 mm dial too?

          Also thanks for heads-up on the t19 crystal, I was not aware of that. As an alternative would you suggest something else besides the GS PA462-19m crystal?

          On the Phong case, I might be able to negotiate the price yes, but I’d potentially be taking away the chance from more hardcore and better funded builders to achieve their dream build.

          When you do the decal printing of 369 dial shoot a few photos my way pls
          The issue with HR dials is that they are gold ink and not a true negative relief dial where the polished metal surface is showing through. Real Rolex gilt dials from the era shine and shimmer in a way that gold ink never can. HR dial text is also a lot thicker than the real thing.

          Stem height is more or less correct for the ETAs I've tried, should be about 1.8mm from dial surface.

          29mm dial is too big!! The 6538 takes a 27mm dial, and I'm pretty sure the 6200 does too, or something close to that.

          I don't know of any crystal other than the 19m that fits, other than the ones Phong and MQ sell, which are NOT genuine by the way.

          Will do on the decal dial. Might be a few weeks off.

            I might just go with a budget build for now. I’ve seen many great builds with HR dial and silix case. Will keep you guys posted

                I was trying to be polite, and giving him the benefit of the doubt instead of just calling out the wrong bezel! ha ha! Actually, I saw this watch a few months ago over on Repgeek. Killowatour(sp?) posted it after he built it for the member.

                  this was the main inspiration for the build.

                    I’m not sure if it’s the wrong bezel though, it’s more about not being a 6538/A milsub but a very rare 4 liner 6538.

                    But of course I’m might be wrong here.

                      Speaking of bezels, what is the verdict on WSO no hashmark inserts? They look pretty good to me.

                              Well, that looks like a computer graphic to me. I certainly wouldn't expect it to be as good as the Phong one, which is at least close to being right.

                              I think you said you're going to go with a silix or HR build, both of those cases use an oversized bezel and insert so your options may be limited to what comes with the case.

                                Indeed, WSO won't fit the silix/cartel case
