This was a completed project for my brother’s 21st birthday!
I sourced for the parts online and found a nice combination of an A. Lange and Sohne inspired Roman numeral dial and heat-blued dauphine hands!
I encased a Miyota 8215 automatic movement (with an engraved rotor) in a stainless steel case that looks remarkably like a Richard Lange series. I had the case back engraved as well!
Placed it on a simple brown genuine leather strap (nothing too fancy, I was still a broke student with limited budget)
All in all, this build cost me just shy $150 from start to end!
was a great learning experience!
I sometimes build watches when I’m free :) Not a professional, just a regular guy documenting his learning journey!
