Hey there,

Bought a Nitrox a while back from WUS with the intention of changing it up a bit.

Stage 1: Get some Gator or Croc on this bad boy.
Went for Ridinfool Croc for craftsmanship, price, and style.
Love the rugged look to Brian's work.
His straps add a nice contrast to the precision tooled machines we wear with imperfect yet masterful evidence of a human hand made touch.

Stage 2: Silver Bezel Swap (on special order from Zixen)
Stage 3: Lume Silver Bezel (not original design - not committed to this step yet)

Thanks for watching

Whoa, does THIS look AWESOME or what ?! Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc Icon_eek Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc Icon_cheers NICE job Jaw !!! Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc 803574
You have a fantastic contemporary sport diver theme with the case, and dial.
While the strap adds a cool casual, vintage feel to the watch. It's a combination
that JUST works imho. Plus the way, the black dial looks, against the color on
the strap, just looks GOOD !!! Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc 46145 ..It's amazing seeing how much a watch
can change with ideas like this ! Stage 1 was EXCELLENT, can't wait for stage
2, and 3 if you decide to do them !

Thanks Tom.
Stage 2 is for bezel certain - wish watchmaker wasn't required.
Cause there will be times when I'll want the black bezel.
Painting lume in bezel markers for Stage 3 is a whole different animal.
Won't risk do-it-yourself.

You're very welcome Jaw !..Some cool stuff there ! Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc Icon_cool
With the silver bezel, that could be an off the charts
experiment. Would definitely be fun to try, and even
though you will probably need that watchmaker, it
might be well worth it. Maybe he can even change
it back to black later on down the road for you too ! Zinex Nitrox Mod Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc Icon_cheers
Stage 3 sounds like a fantastic idea as well. In any case,
take your time, enjoy and..good luck with everything !
