    Mapajo the lugs on that watch are amazing works of art (to me anyway).

    I agree. The watch is before renovation. It will look like new.

    I heard about them over on TRF, and the guy posts regularly on watchuseek forum marketplace. The quality is exceptional ! Pending the watch, you may have to provide the case measurements. Takes about a month from order to delivery.

    Just finished this for a friend. She loved MrsDonkeys Big Zero, so MrsDonkeys wanted to get her one as a parting gift. Finding an original is hard these days, as the market is littered with Franken watches. I built this from two parts watches, one of which had a clean dial.[​IMG]

    Things are good, things are bad.
    People are happy, people are sad.
    And mostly the dye is cast.

    But we can break out.
    If we dare.
    And I have one word for that.

    Lizard.

    Can a band be more than a bracelet?

    On a completely different note, shop time with my go to beater. Casio dive watch, worth every penny of the 16 bucks I paid for it. :lol3

    How does one know when they have watch fever ? ............................. When they build a watch to match their hot rod ! So when you get that "A" finished, build a matching watch.

    My lovely wife surprised me with a Hamilton Khaki Automatic X-Wind for Father's Day. Rose gold with the black face. I will try to upload a picture after work. It is spectacular.

    This is my another Tissot Antimagnetique. I love this brand. This watch is in better condition, comes from the 40s.
