Mine. I've been wanting to do this for awhile and like it better now. My wife got this red dial for me a couple years ago and didn't know I had the white dial from several years before.

The original bracelet starts at 22mm at the clasp and where it meets the lugs is 30mm, I milled the sides to be 22mm all around.
Gives a whole new feel to the watch and glad I did it.

I see Ron ! Gave my Reactor some shop time this morning. Icon_smile Nice job there sir. At first I didn't see it either.
However, then I compared your pictures to the original ! I can
see where that would be alot more comfortable now. Great
work, great watch, and great pictures too !

Great job Ron, I didn't notice either until you pointed it out. That's a compliment from all of us when it looks stock. I happen to like the lug bolts raised, it adds to the overall toughness I think anyway. Gave my Reactor some shop time this morning. Icon_cheers

I was as confused as everyone else, I thought I went color blind. I tried real hard to see a red dial and it scared the crap out of me that it was still black.
You did a great job on the bracelet Ron, I actually like the lug bolts sticking out like they do. Looks like a real tough watch.

. . . . I was afraid to guess earlier. I took the low road and waited.

Now that the secret is out, I'm obviously impressed. So well done it is imperceptable from the stock shot. Your mind is ahead of mine . . .

Think there is a flash of red in the middle of the dial! The milling work is just amazing, if you can pull that off there is nothing you cant do with a watch!! Very talented man and we are lucky to have him!!

I agree, you need special skills and tools of which I have neither.

Thanks guys.
sorry, I wasn't trying to have a mystery here, I was just saying that I have two of these watches, one I bought and one I got from my wife as a gift.

Here is a better shot of the red dial and my other white dial with the bracelet at 30mm at the lugs.
