I really like the new turtles & don't even mind the new Prospex Logo on them.
I’d totally buy one if it came in a 38mm! Love the logo and name! Nice job!Happy Saturday bros!!
Words cannot describe how excited I am to share this with you guys! This has been a LONG time in the making for me and something I have spent many a restless night thinking about, tweaking, and reworking!
I’ll start off saying I love graphic design, always have and probably always will. In college I worked to design the graphics for a club that was building the worlds fastest solar car, and I always thought it funny I finished college doing something I hadn’t even studied lol (engineering major). 100% self taught when it comes to design work.
But I digress. Like may of the other brothers, I was first drawn to BSH by the logo. It intrigued me, and ultimately connected me with you all, all of whom I count myself lucky to know and many I am lucky to consider close friends! Never had I expected this (or the rabbit hole I was tossed into in regards to watch modding! Haha Darn you @didymus03 ; for constantly putting out killer builds and making me want to try new ideas
Anyways, I’m always making and remaking logos and I have been trying to create my own that holds that same (or at least close to it) feeling I had when I first stumbled on the BSH logo! Well....I may have found something close (at least to me). I’m sure I will make more, find new ideas, and change it, but for now, I think this is the current name I would use if I were to start a micro brand: Mirage
I think it fitting seeing as how so many of my builds draw upon the looks of those watches that I love but cannot attain/afford. So on the surface they appear genuine and of grandeur, which draws you in, but as you get closer you realize it’s really not what you were expecting at all and is something else entirely! (Hopefully still in a good way in this case )
Man this turned into an essay, sorry!
I apologize. That’s it for my explanation! Without further adieu, I present the first watch build in the Mirage series! Here is the Mirage Seahaven (so named because...well.. I love the ocean and to me, it truly is a haven and sanctuary every time I’m out on it!)
Closeup of the Mirage logo:
Stay tuned for some future Mirage builds!! They are soon to be incoming! (I’ve already tweaked/played with the logo )

Thank you so much! And thanks for posting the video – I don’t think I’ve seen any of his older stuff.Thanks! I just caught up with the thread and I wish to also say that I am truly sorry for your loss and offer you my most sincere condolences.
Gorgeous! That lapis blue is.... chef’s kiss Looks like you do your own dial printing too?Without further adieu, I present the first watch build in the Mirage series!

Buy the seller. I do not know MBguy, and he may be absolutely ok, but with ~200 posts and zero forum feedback, I’m walking away. Also, he has listed a “Bond” Omega twice before - in 2018 and 2019. Does he have feedback elsewhere? Only spend as much as you’re willing to lose.Is MBguy reputable?
He sent me a pm saying he has an omega bond from 1999 that is genuine. But no proof..can i trust him?

Throwing a couple hundred at something is one thing but you are talking about a sought after 007 watch. As @Twehttam has said "Buy the Seller" if I were looking for something like that I would ask the Omega forum where to look and who to look for.Is MBguy reputable?
Congrats brother! Such a big hurdle. Now you are ready for the next dial run!
DibsDid some one mention challenge coins? Back when I was active duty (1983-2003), I usually kept one in my pocket, just because. Nowadays I'll occasionally have one in my pocket, and for sure if I'll be meeting up with some brothers-in-arms.

Great job bro. 👍👍
Honestly, I find it quite a waste to not use this decent enough stock bracelet because of limited microadjust positions. So I hope more of us can use this bracelet, if you're a bracelet guy like me. 😃Brilliant! I will have to give this a try while I wait on the Riyi rivet.
This was the videos I saw the guy applying the hands with Radico I knew I saw it somewhere and a little gutted I couldn’t find it as it was so helpful!Thanks! I just caught up with the thread and I wish to also say that I am truly sorry for your loss and offer you my most sincere condolences.
Regarding the watch: It's a modded SKX031 with removed crown guards, ceramic bezel and dagaz BB Tribute dial. Wanted a 6538 hommage with a modern touch I only did the dial and hand swap though, it already had the shaved crown guards and the ceramic bezel setup when I bought it. The tutorial I followed was this onewhich is an old Lume Shot video where cheap equipment is used.
I hope this helps!
Rhory must never have bought one.I hear ya Paul. "DO 80 PUSHUPS BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE SOMETHING THE GOVERNMENT NEVER ACTUALLY ISSUED YOU BUT I BOUGHT ON MY OWN"....always annoyed me.
Lots of people collect them without the shenanigans, though.
Two 031s in a row?! I need a seiko Pepsi, and I’m thinking about this case.
I have one, that I designed for my unit to commemorate our Gulf War I service.Did some one mention challenge coins?

Nowadays I'll occasionally have one in my pocket, and for sure if I'll be meeting up with some brothers-in-arms.
