That looks absolutely atrocious, in almost every way. Geometry looks wrong, measurements look wrong. You got the strap interface correct though.

Get the .dwg correct, or don't bother, because the result will be incorrect. You need sloping, radial recesses of some kind on the non-visible "shoulders" of that adapter.

>You need sloping, radial recesses of some kind on the non-visible "shoulders" of that adapter.
Forgot to mention why you need them.

The linkage is far too long, try to shorten it.

Or, if you're feeling ambitious, have it interface with the dial as well as the lug, fixing it in place.

Pocket watches were he norm until wrist watches came about and were more convenient.

Hmm, thanks.

My interests in watches are very specialized with an interest in tritium (yes, that is me) that originates from outside of horology (including having been a spark, see >>55014790). Add a use of ISO date in my present line of work work and some troubled eyesight, stir and destill and you get my peculiar preferences.

Unfortunately what I want is not available for money. I met a watch maker and mentioned my needs and while he was an enthusiastic gentleman he felt he was too old to restart new designs.

As for languages, English is my 3rd language (depending on some definitions). Expect oddities.

"Spark": morse code operator or telegraphist. Especially used about radio telegraphists on ships, having a duty to obey the listening periods. Lives depended on it.

Since I no longer do this it makes me an old spark. The profession has many odd expressions:
a man is OM (old man)
women are YL (young lady)
dead telegraphists are SK (silent key)
We used more abbreviations than excessively hip, cool and trendy 1337-dudes, see Q-codes and Z-codes for some examples.

There are many emergency frequencies, the colour indicates which you have to listen in on.
Red: listen to 500 kHz
Green: listen to 2182 kHz

All radio rooms on ships would have a clock like this. Violating the rules would be close to a capital offence.

Is a NATO the best choice for a summer strap? I remember someone saying that rubber is very comfy in the summer and I kind of find that hard to believe.

Perlon, and specifically very loosely braided perlon is the best.

What's with the mechanic meme? Quartz watches work fine for 10 years.

>I've never seen anything like it for any other kind of watches though.
The HDA-600 comes with it and it's not a G-Shock. But still a Casio though.
