    Hi, I bought a Speedmaster Pro Acrylic in 2017, and I love it. I just bought a Mitsukoshi dial and hands (specific for my 1861 movement), with the intention of paying a watchmaker to do the dial swap. I love the look of the panda dial. The problem: I can't find a good watchmaker who'll do...

    Just curious what people's opinions are on this topic. My watch in question isn't anything special, other than being my first mechanical watch. Might be time to part with this one and upgrade to a mechanical chronograph.

    Casio G-Shock
    Hi everybody. I bought a black resin bezel from PacParts to change things up a little on my GST-w310D-1ajf mid-size G-Steel. The new bezel is from a GST-w300-1ajf.

    Will a 20mm, curved-end rubber strap for the Omega Planet Ocean fit onto the Speedmaster Pro (3572.50/3570.50)? I've searched high and low, but can't find an answer! (the keywords aren't helpful!) Anyone with both, care to comment?

    I have a rather noticeable (at least to me!) Scar on my orange bezel. I was thinking of swapping this with the new grey bezel. I checked at the Omega Dubai Boutique and their answer was a firm "NO". Apparently they also checked this with their technician. With the limited faith I have in the...

    Hey all. Debaufre was gracious enough to include to an extra Pepsi bezel for my recent GMT purchase, as they were out of stock on the Pepsi bezel model (the one I really wanted). After searching this forum and others, it's clear that I would have to deal with glue to swap out the inserts. I...

  19. Project: Reverse-Buzz Swap!!!

    Casio G-Shock
    In Buzz's thread titled, The Hybrid 5600, he swapped a module 1545 into a DW-5600C case. After looking at his thread, I got inspired. And since he didn't post any pics of this particular swap on his thread, I thought that I would post a few of my own. For this swap, I decided to do the opposite...
