Started as a cheap Soki

Brushed the case and bezel with some green Scotbrite, bleached the bezel insert, got a yellow printed dial from Raffles on eBay, painted the hands with some coffee. Remove cyclops. Put it on a black NATO that came with my HMT black Pilot. I brushed the hardware on the strap with Scotbrite.

And of coarse wrist shot

It isn't perfect. I bent the seconds hand the first time I attempted to put it together. The crown is a little touchy. I don't know if that is normal or not. The "aging" of hands doesn't perfectly match the dial. But overall I am happy with my first mod.

I have three mods planned for the rest of this year, a snowflake Bagelsport mod, a Paneria homage and a Brassed Vostok or Luch.

Good job! I really dig the look of the hands. =D
