So it'll be a gen bubbleback case I've had stashed for a bit, a negative relief gilt dial with pad printed accents (most notably the red "EVEREST" writing), and some AliX hands until I can find better. NH38 movement so no worries about ghost date position.

This is the rough mock up at the moment, with a reject dial that I made to get an idea of the proportions. The dial still needs some tweaking of layout and fonts, but it's close (and the gen watch is so rare, I doubt anyone would call out a slight variation from the original):

Lots of work still to go, but I'm happy with the progress so far.
I like your White Whale !
I'll be curious to see which hands you'll find,
I've searched some but never found a similar design :-(
His is the closest I could find. Not a close match, but close in spirit until I can find better.
