    Arutha, I don’t think I’ll find someone to do this service…

    I was tempted to try making it, but it is SO small! Cylinder diameter is 0.8mm. I already found an article describing how it is made. But I still have questions:
    -I don’t have the broken part of the staff, how can I measure the precise height the staff must be?
    -What kind of tool to use to cut the cylinder? The article I read mentioned a file, but where to get such a small one? It is a very small cut, at this moment I do not have any tool for this.

    Now, about the watch dial… Does anybody know where in the world people write numbers like that?
