Chris, this project watch of yours is simply BEAUTIFUL sir !
..Think it was very very
ingenious to mix the old with the new with this. You get this new modern stealth feel with
the case, but then the vintage dial astonishes with all of it's amazing characteristics, and
color. It's pretty SPECTACULAR, that is for sure !!! Can't imagine being able to do something
like this at all. I mean thinking about it might be one thing, but to be able to first of all
have the knowledge, and then put it all together like this is phenomenal. Seems like
you have a REAL gift here, and that Ron who also has this gift, was really VERY helpful in
making this project come together. Great stuff ! ..Just the way in which you came up
with the idea of using such a NEAT looking case is great. Again it was ingenius, because
the finish is super classy, and stealthy. It also has a shape that further kicks up the elegance
in my opinion. So just starting with the case, you already have the beginning phase of
uniqueness, and excellence Chris.
However, when you went with the vintage Elgin dial,
you took this idea, and project to a whole new level imho. Once again, what a TERRIFIC
idea, or plan you came up with. ..Genious !
Not sure what is the BEST part of the
dial to tell the truth. The material looks so durable, and beautiful. By the way, that little
mistake that happened really does add a little more charm, as well as a lived in look
to the watch. So don't worry about that at all, because it's just fine. Honestly, adds
one more cool characteristic to an already cool piece in my opinion. ..Also want to say
that the color is exceptional as well on this vintage dial. It's kind of white, or off white.
Almost looking like an antique color, which really brings another dimension to the watch
as a whole. The contrast of the case, and dial alone is nice enough, but then there are
those unforgettably shaped numbers. Holy COW ! Don't think I have seen such a style
of number on a watch, but it is especially beautiful sir. Even the center section of the dial,
with it's hypnotizing design, along with texture is TOO GOOD here. Just can't think of a
better combination of unique parts to make up a watch. I may use that word alot, but
"unique" is what this project is, and it's pretty remarkable !!! ..You have a modern, yet
classic case, but then have the most stunning vintage dial too. The color, the numbers,
and texturing are ALL incredible to me. Even those hands, and the sub-dial add to the
feel of this watch. ..Their color ALSO plays off of the case finish nicely as well. WOW !
Have to just add that the track of markings on the outside of this dial is eye-catching
also. Not only does it bring that vintage them into focus, but it might just be helping
to show off the threads in that luxurious strap. ..Honestly, it seems like every part
of this watch comes together in such a cool way. Even when you turn your project
over, you can see that THIS movement fits in just right. It has the unique decoration,
as well as just overall beauty that makes this watch so VERY special.
the whole watch, along with ability to plan, and create such a piece is ingenious !!!
What A BEAUTY ! ..What a PROJECT ! ..Congratulations on coming up with, as well as
completing this one ! ..I really hope you enjoy !
Thanks very much for showing us all of this, it's just amazing to see !
Fantastic watch, pictures, and play by play.
