I posted the details for this a little while ago. A local ebay seller here in UK had this size and the one that usually would fit onto a 42mm PO. It fitted into the bezel nicely. Reason for doing this was that I prefer the thinner numbers on this insert compared to the original insert. I still would prefer an all black background but with the thinner font. I know each to their own. :)
Now that you mention it, it does ring a bell.

The inner diameter is a bit larger on that one, is it not, such that there's a bigger gap at the crystal?

I mentioned this before, it's just something I'm musing at the moment. I'm neither certain that I either want to, or will do so, but I might think of doing an Nth hand swap. So appealing to the Nth experts.

1 How many types of gilt hands appear on the Nth Subs. I'd want OEM gilt Nth hands only. Are they hard to get hold of; what types are there, how many different types ?

2 So far I really like the Amphion gilt sword hands. If the gilt matched the gilt on the brown Barracuda, that'd be something I'd definitely consider. Do they match? Does any one know?
(ie. gilt ≠ brass?)

3 Not only does the gilt have to match, the lume must match. Or at least not clash. I'm not keen on the cobbled together style, it's got to look like it would have been bought/designed like that.

4 I'd also consider gilt stick hands. Does something like that exist in the Nth universe?

1 - only Doc can tell

2 & 3- there is a stunning mod floating about here with sword hands on a barracuda blue. No idea if they are OEM. Not that I think that it matters because..

I highly doubt you will be able to get your hands on OEM hands (see what I did there) unless you are willing to buy an Amphion / Carolina / whichever watch has the hands you want to cannibalize. IIRC there were some plans on Doc's side to allow you to configure your watch, but that's been axed. And IIARC, he said before that selling parts like hands or dials is not gonna happen. So it'll be difficult, or at least expensive to do.

For what it's worth, I would love to see you successful in your endeavour. The barracuda brown has grown on me, and I am a sucker for sword hands. That should be a winning combination if you can pull it off

And for whatever this might be worth - if you find a Carolina for sale somewhere, send me a message. I'll buy it and sell you the hands. I'm none so picky about OEM or not, surely I'll find something that'll do it justice ;)

I don't sell hands.

All the gilt hands we've done are IP plated "gold", with the same color.

And they all have the same C3 lume. So, in that way, they're all interchangeable.

Your best bet is to do a hands swap between two NTH models, unless you can source an aftermarket handset that will work.

I know Sam (@Omegafanboy ) has done it. He'd be a good person to ask...

Thanks guys. That's told me exactly what I wanted to know, and also given me some useful pointers, and places to start.
👍🙂

@SchlachterSchmidt if I see a Carolina, I'll certainly let you know.

Ok. So months and months ago I posted about a large project I was working on. A 40' long by 12' wide structure weighing in at about 40k lbs.

Well today we shipped it. I figure some of you may find this sh*t kinda interesting and cool. And there is obligatory watch photos. Pic heavy.
15810762

15810765
15810766
15810768

That's me in the photo holding the guide line
15810769

15810770
15810773

15810777

And an escort to I-20 where we leave him. He'll pick up pilot vehicles at the Louisiana border, then it's all the way to North Carolina.
15810779


Final weight, just shy of 46000lbs. And get this, it's technically a second story. It'll sit on stilts when placed on site. Underneath will be an Airbank system to provide a positive pressure environment in an emergency, as well as a 36hr duration battery backup system to power the UPS and aircon.

Now back to your regularly scheduled tomfoolery.

Still not as big as some Invictas I've seen.

That there watch be Sold...
Yep. I posted it here and to the NTH group on FB. Sold within 12 hours. Wonder if it was someone who saw my post about it.

We only made 20 of the Tiburón. 10 with date, and 10 no-date, back in mid-2018. I can't remember the last time I saw one for sale.

Well the very kind American wus member it seems is coming over much sooner than I thought. Looks like I'll be getting hold of the 'cuda much sooner than I expected.
What it is, is an excellent opportunity to get the usual suspects together for a mini watch conflab..... Yay!
