    Dear Sirs

    Hello! For 2 of my project I am looking for 31mm watch dial, no name, no date, no seconds mini-dial (they are for lefty modding). Can you help?

  5. graham says:

    I have a unique idea for a watch, but I can not find any such thing when I look on line. I contacted several watch makers only to have them say that they have never seen such a watch. Can one be made from scratch? If so who would I contact with such a request? These are the specs of the watch:

    1. 24 hour dial with all 24 digits displayed on the face. (24 at the top, 6 at the 3, 12 at the 6 and 21 at the nine. The hour hand would only make one revolution in a 24 hour period.

    2. A dive style case that is water proof up to at least 100 meters.

    3. Displays the date on the face.

    4. Has a button to back light illuminate the face when activated.

    5. has a functional adjustable chronometer outer ring that is marked off in increments of 5.

    6. Is battery operated.

    Any suggestions that you would have would be much appreciated.

  7. Pedro Vieira says:

    I want to make some custom watches with my own brand on it, without mentioning other brand at all. Can you help me?

  8. Patrick says:

    I’d like to get started on building my own watch, and I know the basics. I’m having trouble finding manufacturers to do custom cases, bezel, 3D design service, etc.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to get started?

    • Alex says:

      Hi Patrick,

      Can you send me detail information what exactly you want to do?How much funds do you suppose to invest into your project?


      • patrick says:

        I don’t know how much to invest, but I’m open to see how much it costs. I wouldn’t have a problem spending thousands to create a watch of the same quality as a breitling or omega, etc.

        I want to create a watch from scratch, but use a ready-made movement from ETA or someone like that. Don’t know where to start!

        • Matt says:

          Hello Patrick,

          I am in the same position as you. I have a 3D model assembly design and dail face – I just need someone who can manufacture the 3 components – bar that the ETA, dial hands, crown and strap are all bought in.

If you could give me some steps i would need to take to make this happen, it would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Anny says:

    I’m looking for someone to make a custom watch from an idea I have–I am having a graphic designer make the design for the dial and hands. Does anyone know of somewhere I can have it made?
