and NO to Brass .... If he is going the cheapest route and using brass or some mix of mainly brass, tell him to not even bother

only ... YES to Bronze for the midcase

also what movement rings? 616? 240? 6497?

That would make it much more wearable.
Do you have profile shot of more curved lugs?
Not at the moment. But I will dig in the Mega Folder when back. Perhaps someone else has one of Esdee‘s HL

Full agreement that it needs to be bronze like his beautiful 6154 bronze cases. Brass just doesn’t patina like bronze and looks cheap.

There were two gen references of the case: straight lugs and slightly curved lugs.

Esdee made the straight version and shared the design with Athaya so he could produce the curved one.

If anyone is looking for gen reference pictures, there's a link on my signature.

Thx for creating this thread.

Here is the last hornlug that I had made, actually it made using Esdee drawing, curved lug model.
