     Luke;  I am sure you have heard of "watchmakers double back tape".   I like it.  many vintage watches have rusted screws that hold the dial feet.  it is difficult to keep the moisture out!  in the far distant future,  some watch enthusiast will thank you for "tapeing" ! vin

Thanks! i shall keep this in mind! very close to the finish line now.

ignore the stem and the black colour, imagine it as sterling silver! and the blue dial is to bright but you get the point!

Next think is i need a supplier of screws to fit the backing onto the case. Does anyone know of a company that sells them that are not in multi packs of different sizes?



Yes, search for Hubsan Drone Screws, you'll get bags of self tappers that will be ideal for that.
