    Case for ETA2824

    I have a working ETA2824 movement with a very nice dial and hands with BWG9 lume .Now I'm looking for a diver type case to fit this assembly. The dial is I believe 29.5 mm.There are some on Ebay but they seem to be for a larger dial .If I can't get a case I shall probably sell the movement and dial which is a shame .
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks for replying.
    Do these measurements refer to the dial size ?
    I just checked ,my dial is 28.9 actually and of course I would need the holding ring (if that is the correct term )

    I was going to say... make sure whatever you buy either has a movement ring / holder otherwise some trial and error with Soares will ensue...

    Can you post a picture of the dial etc - just suggesting a case would be easier once the dial design is known

    This is the dial

    it's on a 2824 movement now .Movement runs fine but there is a little slippage when hand winding .I can live with that .

    Slippage when hand-winding needs fixing! if you’re lucky a new sliding pinion and winding wheel will fix it, if not you’ll need a replacement mainplate.

    Who would do this and what do you reckon it would cost ?
    Thanks.
