    You're most welcome and thanks! I'm new to modding myself and the forums have been such a great resource, I just hope I can give back a bit! Glad you found it useful. I can't wait to hear about the build you end up with.

        Hi everyone,

        I cant seem to find a decent dial for the DG2813 movement, the good ones are all ETA compatible. Does anyone know if I can somehow fit an ETA dial to the DG2813 ?

          Most of the best dials (Vietnam dials) are for the Rolex calibers, so it's pretty common to use a dial for a different movement. It involves cutting off the dial feet and using dial dots to attach the dial to the movement.

            So my project is over!

            got the Cartel 5513 base, dropped a HR dial in and some case work.

            HR dial - slightly baked and lacquer dusted
            CG shaped - pics dont show it well, looks more rectangular in real :/
            case, bezel, xtal etc aged and beaten lightly

              Nice job!

              You have to cut and paste the BBCode to get the photos to show up in your post.
