Ruby's doesn't currently have a Big Red dial in stock, but they seem to update their stock every few weeks and I have seen that they have regularaly had Big Red dials in stock in the past. I would email them. I think the cost will be around $300-$350 for a dial + 50 shipping.

        Yuki is another option, but I think Yuki daytona dials are a step down from Ruby's: https://www.yukiwatch.com/catalog/it...9/10282040.htm

        FYI, you will need to modify the ST19 movement to fit a gen spec Vietnam dial. hanski posted some information about that here: https://forum.replica-watch.info/for...79#post7157379. There is also a more detailed explanation in this thread over on RWG.cc: https://rwg.cc/topic/136033-modding-...-dial-spacing/

        Best of luck!
        Hey mate.. I have the same interests here.. possible to have the pwd too?
        Thanks

          Seeking advise here for my 6263 project…Any suggestions where to find a gen-like black Bakelite bezel? Is the Cartel one so off?
          Thanks

            Did you check out the 6263 bezels that Ruby's sells? They look decent.

            FYI, if you're planning on fitting a gen spec bezel to a cartel case, you will have to machine a lip off the outer lower wall of the rehaut of the case in order to allow a gen spec bezel to sit flush with the case. The cartel bezel has a step machined into its inner diameter to accommodate the lip on the cartel case, but a gen spec bezel does not have that step, so you either have to remove the lip from the case or machine a step into the gen spec bezel.

                          Thanks for sharing so many good tips mate. Really appreciated! I’m a bit uncertain about to remove the lip from the case.. not sure I can make a good job there. I saw that Ruby has two different bezels for the 6263.. I think about it. Meanwhile I sourced the watch from Marvellous, ordered the Clark 25-21 and about to pick up a good black dial from Ruby.
                          Yuki ran out of bracelets.. in your opinion the Cartel is hopeless?
