Post 1st watch mod / build of 2017 - please share yours
Some of you noticed that I've been a little scarce these last 2 weeks. Well I'm back from vacation and finally am starting to get some free time. So it's back to watches and this forum again :thumbup:

My first mod for 2017...... please share your first mod or build too.

A red oring for a plexi spacer.

Here's my first. Simple one with 45mm case, acid washed. BigWaved dial, aged plexi and home made furniture leather straps.

Still an amateur so no soldered parts.....

I'm waiting for a case set that I got from another HF member since December 13th that I planned to finish before New Years and now I guess I want to be my first build this year, but it's not looking good :(

I don't know why this dial arrived with shallower text grooves as usual...Impossible to have complete white letters on black dial...Whatever I decide to do in cream whit brown text...
As it's sound not too bad I plan to reshape the Getat mini fiddy, remove the CG text, shape a solid plexi...

If you want I can try doing it in black. I have successfully done it before on Adrian's shallow engravings dials.

Here's my first for 2017. Wanted to put it in a pvd 3646 case, but I finally got one of my horn lugs the shade of black that I think works with this Lum-tech dial.
