        Crown guards are awful on many of the cheap Sub homage cases. Look how the tops of them angle into the crown, covering part of it.

        I had a case like that and hated that aspect of it so I reshaped the CGs with small diamond files and sandpaper. It's not hard, you just have to take it slow and make tiny changes.



        Look at some pics of CGs on a gen 14060, I think you will not find that cheap case so appealing as is.

        We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.

          Yes i know , the problem is the case….but in this time I not find “cheap” case that accept 29mm dial (raffles) and with sapphire glass

          The Bp 16610 watch case accept the dial?

            1 - case is made for an NH35 movement ... you still can fit a 2824-2 but you'll have to get a large movement ring
            2 - lugs are not drilled through ... they should be on a 14060
            3 - crownguards are awfull ... you'll have to rework it
            4 - the dial opening (inside rehaut diameter) will probably be too large for a 14060 (should be smaller than on a 16610)
            5 - the metal surrounds of the markers on raffles dial are way too thick
            6 - ect ...
            At the end you'll get a watch far from looking like a real 14060 ... not worthy IMHO even if you don't loose much money
            1 - A/6538 Burford Milsub
            2 - sorry ... that build is classified
            3 - 16800 Comex Rolex - dated 1984
            4 - Heavily modded 16610 cheapie
