                hanski Is gen case the only way to go for 4 and 5 digit datejusts? I was trying to pick up a pre assembled DJ to just swap the dial out on but can't find any vintage DJ or day dates from TDs.

                  You know, I’m not sure. I haven’t gone searching for rep cases - just gen parts for franken pieces or building projects for others.

                          Congrats, nice piece.
                          Did you do the dial feet soldering yourself? If yes, what did you use for that? Thanks.

                            I did do it myself.

                              Were you not nervous about marking that beautiful dial?
