  1. Affordable watches
    Hello, Was thinking of putting an aftermarket 6105 dial on the San Martin 6105 homage (I've attached the SM watch and the dial I am thinking of buying). Any suggestions? I'm okay with silver hands and indices on a bronze case. Will I also need to buy a chapter ring? The ring it came with is...
  2. FAQ
    Hi guys! Need some help.. Super new to watches, needs some answers to what I experienced... I recently got a DW5610SU-8 and wanted to change the bezel. Went to carousell and got this guy to help me out. He tried to fit a 5610 bezel but it was too small. He proceeded to fit a 5600 bezel...
  3. Casio G-Shock
    I had the idea to create this thread because it is something that I like to do and that I often do (not only on watches) to see or imagine how this object could look like with some changes. I guess I shouldn't be the only one to do that ? :think: The idea is to share your edited images here...
  4. Dive watches
    Hi, I really like the Helson Shark Diver and want to get one with raised indices / markers. I have seen some in the sales section but would prefer a new one. I cannot find the raised mod on Helson's webshop (or any other modification options). I sent them a mail but have not heard back (yet)...

    Orient Blu Ray II with a Yobokie coin-edge bezel and black, retro ceramic insert with red...zero marker? (what's that thing called?) The strap is a Blushark Alphashark (their premium line) "Uncle Sam" NATO strap. The blue in it almost perfectly matches that of the face (bit of a gamble but it...

  7. Watchmaking
    Hey guys, This is my first post here so if this is the wrong spot, Im sorry! haha please let me know where/how I should move it, if it is the wrong place. My quick question... regardless of movement, assuming a watch dial physically fits into a case, can you just trim the dial feet and it'll...
  8. Watch Concepts & Designs
    Hi friends, Seeing many watches with a base ETA movement, and various of "modules" modifying the movement to add additional features on the dial such as a sub-seconds sub-dial on 9H. How does it works ? How do they transfer the center seconds to the 9H position (or other positions) ? I know...
  9. Affordable watches
    I am trying to locate somebody who can re-lume watches in the UK. It appears to be far more difficult than it should first appear.
  10. Officine Panerai
    Total Newbie here, so apologies if this is a dumb question: I'm ga-ga over the Pan 244 but would really, really, REALLY, like to be able to admire the movement. Is there an after-market way to swap out the steel case back for a sapphire one? I've seen this done on some rolex watches, so I'm...
  11. Seiko
    Hi all. I posted this up on the Omega forum yesterday (because my collection is mainly Omega) and thought that it obviously belongs here as well. So here it is. Okay, I hate the term "Franken" when talking about modifying watches, but it's been in use for so long that I figured it was...
  12. Omega
    Okay, I hate the term "Franken" when talking about modifying watches, but it's been in use for so long that I figured it was easier to use it than try to think up something else. Oh, wait a sec, I could have just called it a modification, I suppose. :-s Oh, man, I'm tired. Anyway, for those of...
  13. Omega
    hi pal i was reading some info for this movt and these i what i found: from wiki: ''The ETA 2892.A2[7] is however, widely considered the more upscale of the basic ETA movements, is regarded by many horologists as being in the same 'quality' range (accuracy and reliability) as the in-house...
