Been trying to use some kick-ass green paint and keep screwing up! Well i just put a new dial and hands in my oniss diver yesterday and it looked good but just wasnt quite what i wanted and when Ron mention if it was the case that Alan gave me i said no but a light bulb went off in my tiny head!! I will use the cali dial on the "alan project watch" i will gently pull all the hour markers off and paint the original dial the green i so want to use, let it dry over night and put the markers back on add a new set of jay's kick-ass plongeur hands in torch like C3 superluminova and gently put it all back together!! Sounded great and painted last night, this morning my lume pip arrived so i finished installing it and got to work! Hard to pick up the color on the camera but its a great green, with a eta 2824 running this machine i brushed the bracelet and case then took it a little farther and used a fiberglass pen (scratch,ouch) and did the bezel numbers, flat spots and side (the whole friggin bezel) and for once everything worked just as planned!
Enjoy the pics...

when i got it back into my possession.

Cali dial is going in the Alan project watch! Here is a couple studio shots (i hate shooting inside and i suck at it) but it gives you a bit more of the grren!! color is somewhere between the outside shots and inside!

man i suck, too much light and washed the hands right out! I'm a wrist shot guy in the sun! Flashlight gives it an uneven color but it's not, i give up!

COngratulations on it all finally coming together for you! Very nice finished product. I'm amazed at how great the case and bracelet ended up looking after you were finished. Not to take away from the dial at all but I have several watches that I'm tempted to treat like you did the case/bracelet and your finished product is inspiring.

amazing job on putting the hour markers back on, I screwed up a dial doing that.
Looks great with no minute markings just the hours, always cool to see your next mod!

WTG Trevor! Fabulous mod-over! How did you get those hour markers put back on so well? The metallic green is very COOL! Your brushing is as good as it gets. CONGRATS!

Woohoo ! Now THAT'S impressive !!! third times a charm, a lucky charm!!!! 46145 third times a charm, a lucky charm!!!! 803574 third times a charm, a lucky charm!!!! 46145
That dial can put you in a trance if your not careful !
The color is great, and there is almost a 3D effect
happening as well. The watch REALLY came out NICE !
Kind of makes you wonder why watch companies don't
try stuff like this themselves ! In any case, THIS watch
is very unique and, also very smooth !

there are two tiny, very tiny holes in the dial under each marker! the marker has two post on its underside! the trick is getting them back in and putting a superglue spot on the back off the dial on each post! Let it dry and then sand it down a touch because the date wheel runs under the same spot on the dial! i've got a stripped dial at work i will post tomorrow, not sure my camera will macro down to the pin holes in the dial! after i paint a dial i use a straight pin to open up the holes!
