    Do anyone have any suggestions for 1675

    As a sub rookie to this forum but actually I have been studying Rolex vintage for a while.
    I have a project to build a Rolex 1675. I already have dial,hands,5.3crown,2836gmt movement.
    But the case,I don't want to use Vietnam case or cartel case.
    Maybe I will make a case by cnc and a lot of handmade,I will try it and I am not sure if it is successful or not.
    Or I should use the Vietnamese case directly.
    Do anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

      If you can machine a case comparable to a Vietnam case for less - then go for it and get wealthy quickly!

            This is my first step, refer to the cartel case and the network data about 1675, and draw.

              ^^ this.

              If you can produce a Gen Spec case like the Vietnam cases, than go for it.
              A lot of people could be interessted in such GMT midcase (incl. me)
              time goes by so slowly ...

                  Definitely looking forward to seeing how this progresses for a gen-spec case set.

                      Isn't this exactly what the Vietnam case manufacturer is already doing? My understanding is there's a supplier who is doing exactly this, and then the various dealers (MQ, Phong, Ruby, etc.) cherry pick which ones they want and then they do their own final touches to them. But the initial case comes from the same supplier. So in theory, if one of our members can essentially do the same thing, but without all of that extra markup, why wouldn't he try?

                        What do you mean by extra margin

                          I wrote markup, but margin is the same concept. As in Company A buys a box of nails for $1 and sells them for $2. If Company B can come in and purchase that same box of nails for $1 but then sell them for $1.50, they have a lower margin. This is why Phong, MQ, and Ruby are priced a little differently for the same basic case - they are operating with different margins. If the OP can produce and sell the same case set for less and still make it worth his time, he'd have a viable option to offer to members.

                            I asked you this question because I also plan to design a Vietnam case with slightly lower prices
