Awesome work. I sort of remember poking in on this when the thread first started & I'm glad it's popped back up again.

Well, it is finished at last. Tomorrow will make proper photos and maybe also a short video.

Unless of course I want to engrave the vertical area of bezel.
That is incredible!

Have you considered doing engraving for other people?

Thanks! I actually already do it, although not full time and I don't promote that very much either.

For those who like to kill 1m 48s of their time - I made small timelapse video during the engraving: Watch hand engraving, part 1 - YouTube. In real time that was 1h 30min. I especially like the parts where you can see minute hand speeding by.

Anway, proper cleaned up photos and video tomorrow.

Your work is absolutely awesome, that's a freaking watch make-over.

Now the question is, what will your next "worthy" victim be?
I say you step things up a bit and go for a manual wind Hamilton.
Strange that you mention it, I'm looking for next one as we speak :). Currently at the top of the list I have Tissot Visodate and Hamilton Day Date Auto. I'll travel to US soon, so it would be good change to get a good deal...

Anyhow, it is finally ready. Quite a long journey, starting from the end of October, but actual hours worked on it was about 4 days worth.

And a video -
. I didn't know much what "to do" in the video, but maybe helps to get a better idea of how it looks in real life.

Awesome work. I forget how small everything is when we see all of these blown up watch pics.

If you are near Virginia then I will be more than happy to offer you free boarding at my home. But of course, while you are here I will be locking you in my garage with some engraving tools and a few of my watches :-d

Absolutely amazing. Totally stunning. World class beautiful work. I'd pay through the nose for that kind of handwork on anything really. Taking a machined case like one of thousands of others and making it into a one of a kind masterpiece is something to be very proud of. Keeping mastery of hand crafts alive in the era of modern manufacturing is something to be proud of too.
