By the sheer number of responses to this thread, more than any other Benarus thread, I think that this watch will be a sell out!

I am really hoping for an ETA in this beast...I would have no problem paying more for ETA!

Don't get me wrong I would love to have the resources to buy what ever I want. Right now, I am just not sure what a "few dollars" more for an ETA is going to be.

A big deep thick layer of C1 (for the teeth look) or C5 (to match the bezel) would be what I want.

looks like ETA 2824 base movement will be close to $100 more than Miyota Movement, but I am not sure of Ralf's pricing.

Ralf will have to answer this also, but it is my understanding that the dial feet needs to match with the movement, also the hands need to be the right diameter to fit the pin on the movement, and I don't think Miyota and ETA are interchangeable, the dials and hands will need to be made for the ETA, or the Miyota, but both might be costly because they would be different. I might be wrong, but I know when buying MKII after market parts, the specs are very specific to make sure they fit right.

On the lume, I like C1 and C3, I prefer the yellowish green over the other green, but I like white the best I think.

I will start a poll about it.

If you prefer white I would take BGW9 instead of C1
But lets poll a little

No they are not interchangeable, I have done a few mods myself. Beleive me someone needs to make after market parts for miyota, but that's a different subject.face4.gif

I am slowly being talked into an ETA, I guess it just means saving a little bit moremistake.gif

#007 hurry up and get here!!

What am I saying, I am still waitng for my SeaDevilparty.gif

right. so the cost of ETA might not be just for the movement. the dial and hands and other parts would need to be made specifically for the ETA, so the cost increase might be more than $100

but Ralf will know the final cost for producing this watch, which I think he is getting close to having an estimate.

Ralf,
I read through the posts looking for an answer, but was unable to find one...can you make it a 1000m or does it put it out of range? I only ask because as a GIGANTIC tool watch it is cool to have '1000M' stamped on it somwhere:) Anyway, just a question. Thanks and keep it coming...and since everyone is claiming numbers so far...I'll take #100!
Ciao,
Mike

Hi Mike, for this dial diameter we would need a very thick sapphire glas and that would be also much more,also the case has to be thicker means it would differ.
I think we shall not raise the costs more  and 500m should be by far enough

I might be the minority here but would it be possible to have a dial with no date?  It's a big a** dial with a small bit for the date... 

maybe we can make an outline for the date and make it look like scrum (sp?)
