After the TST'ing and making the bezel ring it was now time to assemble as all the problems where now sorted, wrong :(

Note, when I TST'd this case I machined a radius on the lugs and then polished them to a high sheen and I also polished the shroud and shroud screws.

I used a new crown/stem from the Sumo and without the movement (NH35A hacking & hand wind) in the case it worked fine and in the movement when not in the case fine but with the movement in the case it worked but is about 1mm ish to long so will "do" for now until another crown arrives (1E70D1SNS0) which hopefully will do the job.

The next problem was the bezel, after machining the ring on the case the bezel fitted fine before anything had been assembled but after fitting the crystal the bezel couldn't seat !! I had not taken into account that the SRP took a 32mm crystal and the MM took a 31mm :( (310W49H20A) to overcome this I fitted a 32mm sapphire crystal that had a good chamfer and also machined a 45 deg chamfer on the underneath of the bezel where it was catching on the crystal which can not be seen, problem sorted :)

The final bit of assemble went forward without any more hitches. 

Update 03 11 17, replaced the NH35 movement with a 4R36 and the crown stem is now the standard 1E70E5SNS0.
