Hi guys. I posted a while back about wanting to do some DIY restoration to my Seiko 7T92 chronograph and now I am doing it. While it's not all DIY I thought you guys would like to see it in progress. If you want I'll post some pics after? Hopefully I can get it looking new.

This is the watch before:





So far I have polished the case properly and had the crystal replaced. What you can see in the next few pictures is my cunning plan for filling back in the bezel. You won't see the new crystal (as it's covered with sticky tape) but you can see the dial in progress.





Bear in mind I have never done this before and have no idea how this will turn out. I will give the paint 24 hours or so to dry and taking a piece of paper lightly dipped in acetone take off the surface of the paint. It's a nice novel watch of painting an engraved bezel. Fingers crossed it'll look good. I've actually used a Sharpie once before and after quickly writing wiped the surface off. It looked great but didn't last with time.

I will post more pics soon so you can see the follow up.

Good luck, looks like you're going well so far.
Painting the tachy dial will look nice.
New crystal always does wonders.
Look forward to seeing more. :-!
