    Hi all,
    This summer I decided to do my first watch build, and have chosen a Tag Heuer 1500 WD1221-K-20. [​IMG]
    I have bought all of the genuine parts off eBay in great condition, except for the dial. I cannot find this dial (see photo) in the correct size (25.5mm) anywhere, and all the similar ones are out of my price range for a dial (£80+). All the ones on eBay that I have seen are either way too expensive or not the right ones. I am looking to spend max £30-£40 if possible, as I have already run my budget out and don't plan on spending much more on it if I can help it.

    If I really can't find one I am considering making one using a brass dial blank and a high quality print on decal paper, but this isn't ideal as it would be a shame to have a non-genuine part.

    Does anybody know where I can find one of these dials?

    Thank you all!

    Billy

    They do come up on eBay quite often- but I doubt at the price you're looking at.

    Maybe try making an offer for one on eBay, or hold out for a damaged/ parts watch?

    There are a few cheap ones on eBay, just not the right ones unfortunately, but I'll keep looking. Might consider a watch for parts, thanks!
