Gauging interest : The 1st Submariner Rolex 6204 Case Kit

Post by Athaya »

Hello guys,

I plan to make case kit for the first Submariner Rolex 6204 using the gen 6204 case that I just acquired.

Case will be made in gen specs that will accept Rolex Cal. A260 Movement, but will add eta adapter for it.

Case kit will contain :
——————————
- Complete midcase with caseback and gasket
- 5.3mm brevet Crown with tube
- Complete bezel assembly
- Tropic 16 plexi
- 6204 pencil hands (option for A260 and ETA movement)
- ETA movement adapter

Please tell me what do you guys think.

If have interest enough I will open the pre-order and also will run the batch only once since we need to honor this beauty.

6204 case is bottom one, above is 6536/1.

This is a great offering Adrian! How about offering an ETA footed dial as well? Or does Yuki already sell this.

sounds great!

there are lots of A260 movements out there

I was under impression that all those bezels were originally brass ... or nickel plated brass. The stainless versions were later "service" bezels?

Any interest if you will do a James bond Big Crown Sub 6538 ... to accept 1030 movement ? Those movements are pretty accessible out there as well.
