Dial Placement

Post by SeikoJohn on Tue Apr 04 2017, 19:38

Hypothetical question :- If I was to remove the dial and hands from this watch could I then rotate the dial 180 degrees so that the crown is on the left rather than the right ?



If the answer is yes could the same be done with this watch



would the date window still work ie would it line up correctly .

The only reason for asking is I wear my watch mainly on my right wrist and the crown would be better on the left rather than the right.

Hope that makes sense

it would work for both although the date on the monster would be upside down, there are upside down date wheels though.......downside is you would need to cut off the dial feet and refit new ones .......not easy or recommended..............i think yobokies does [ or used to do ] a dial that would suit your purposes, but if still available it wont be cheap, there are some modded 007's and 7002's on ebay done like this...........i would hate to say how well they are done Shocked

i also wear my watches on the right wrist but its an advantage IMO as the crown is well and truly out the way
