You can call this one "franken" if you want, but I prefer "custom mod". This used to be a manual wind Raketa...it died. So I salvaged the dial, got new hands and tranplanted it in a watch I didn't like very much. "Peter the Great, heavy nuclear powered rocket carrying battleship"

Have been waiting for this one as well Gary !!! Surprised  Boy oh boy, it is out of this world !!! Very Happy

First, you have that sensational Russian dial that is just as dynamic as any out there ! Just the pictures, along with
colors are always exceptional ! But then you have the amazing markers, hands, and texture here. Not to mention a
tank of a case, and bracelet with just the right touch of class, and coolness added to the equation !!!

Remarkable work sir !!!

Darius, these Wilde-Beasts are astonishing honestly !!!  Every model is la centerpiece really !!! bounce

Having a chance to see these original versions is just the best too ! ..I remember when it was this variation, along with the
red, silver, or black carbon fiber choice with either beautiful stainless, or cool gunmetal finish. You just could see the quality
was on a different level, and was equaled only by the phenomenal design sir ! Yowza, just amazing Darius !!!

Can't stop staring D !!! Idea

Oh man, how could I forget about the orange Darius?!! Surprised It's just incredible !!! cheers

First off, you don't see too much orange carbon fiber, and with the way Renato does it, it's extra awesome sir !
The pattern is out of this world, but so is the additional blue !!! ..Just the WB design, and finish is outstanding !!! Very Happy
