But there is a reason why it starts at 88 cents...

Remaking those discs will be one of our next projects.  The original plastic used for those begins to warp over time, the discs get hella marked up from being taken on and off several times during their lives, and they can crack if someone handles them roughly.  If we can get the originals down pat, we could probably do customs like they used to do with the seconds discs as well....... ;D

Yep, we would just have to pay to get the printing die made.  Then it could go on dials, discs, and whatever else you wanted  ;)

Hi.  A first post and I ran into this!  I had seen this watch on ebay but have no idea what you are talking about here::)  a lot of learning to do.  Anyway, since you're talking about plastic thingys;  has anyone kicked around laser printing?  It could even work for metal parts.  Thanks for letting me join the fun.  Bill

Just that is was a actual auction starting at 88 cents, and not $299.99 as most of the crap on eBay starts at now a days.

Yes, BWG and I have been kicking around 3D printing for a few years now, has great possibilities for vintage watch collecting.
