Series 3 guts into an 1st gen Apple Watch case possible?
I have both an 1st gen Apple Watch and a series 3. My 1st gen is stainless, sapphire and ceramic, and want to swap the guts of my Series 3 into my 1st gen. Is this possible?
Thank you everyone. I guess I should’ve expanded a bit more on my reasoning why I feel “value” on my question.
I forked out Benjamins on a step up from the lower tier aluminum, ion, composite option. I got my Series 3 as a raffle, and comparing the two, it feels as if the new came out of a Cracker Jacks box, and feels cheap, compared to the kick ass feeling of stainless, sapphire and ceramic back.
There is the “value” I personally see seeking advice, or suggestions. I guess, I could also just sell both, and just fork out the difference.
First-world problems are a darn thing nowadays. Thanks all.

I do feel bad as I could see a lot of people trying to do this. Think of the gold and the while ceramic models which cost in the $10,000 range. I wonder if Apple offered them upgrades? The Stainless model while not as expensive is also stuck in this quagmire.
I would take the time to review the IFIXIT Teardown's:
- Orginal Apple Watch Teardown
- Démontage de l'Apple Watch Series 2 This also covers the gen2 Series 1
- Vue éclatée de l'Apple Watch Series 3
Keep in mind the Series 3 has a different screen, back and antenna than the older units so you can't reuse yours. The mounting of the antenna will require a jeweler with the correct tools to drill and tap new holes if it can be done.
