Just got done with this and it's hot! Had a friend CNC a huge thick caseback, got the dial from asia and under it is a miyota 8215 so i had to drill out the ETA hands and picked up a red second hand from otto frei to fit the 8215. Took the numbers off the chapter ring and painted it bright silver, brushed the case,bracelet and added a new clasp, also put in a lumed pip to the bezel! pics are bad because the sun isnt out and i cant shoot indoors but here they are! Can anyone guess what brand this watch used to be?

trying to find a crown, it's small 5.4mm plus screw down. think i've found one that will work from otto frei, got the dial, movement and hands, just trying to decide if i want the blue bezel or something different and the caseback will be sterile! got one more waiting for hands then the alan project is on!!!

Wowza Trev ! another one off the work bench 803574 another one off the work bench 803574 You're becoming a master at all of this modding !
That case is out of sight cool imo ! The bezel is supremely clean and sporty.
While the aluminum chapter ring keeps the brushed theme going perfectly
as well. You are now officially a pro at this ! another one off the work bench Icon_smile I mean look at how good
the dial looks, and how it's all tied together with one nice looking bracelet
too ! A++ !!! Enjoy the watch and CONGRATS !

dont want to see them that bad. Had a friend sterlize the caseback and he let his kid do it and went right thru it, so i had another buddy build this huge thing thats on it now, i really dig it alot and there is more heft and almost 18mm thick now! Was a cool watch to begin with but i get bored and play with some of my watches and try to reinvent them!

Quite the transformation Trevor! The caseback is awesome as it creates a totally different look to the watch. Your choice on the chapter ring is very creative. Another very Cool Mod!
