Re: Pinion's TT

I like it but I don't understand why they put the seconds markers in the middle of the dial and then seconds hand arrow pointing toward the edge... :shrug: If they put the markers where the arrow head is it would make more sense to me... :scratch: Wow, just seeing that now Carlo ! :o You have the b...

Re: Seiko Sky Walker

Thank you for the kind words.

The case is a model called SARZ005, the dial is from another model, SRPC31, the hands are from the SRP41 (SPORK) and the seconds hand is military from MKII.

...but why does the '9' have to be so big?

Probably they thought it would fill up the empty space on the dial where there are no subdials... :shrug:

Re: Seiko SRPC61, 63, 65, 67, 68

Very nice models, I wish they did not have the 5 logo on the dial though, nor the writing "Sports"...

Lose the red, add normal MM300 hands, then it’s a winner.

Re: Weiss Watch Co.'s latest Standard Issue Field Watch

Very nice looking, I like the seconds hand in that position better then the one at 9. 38 mm though is a little small for me. Price might be affordable but certainly not cheap.

It almost look like a pilot watch to me or I guess an in between. Either way I like the simple look. :thumbsup:

Re: Diewald's Seahorse II

Not bad looking and at least it is not a copy of something else. Personally I would prefer smaller markers on the dial and a little thicker hands. Or even a military type dial I think would look good on that case.

Re: Latest Seiko project, SRP779 with SDBC027 dial

Thank you guys. These parts are a little hard to find, I was lucky to find the dial on sale on the Seiko forum from Duarte. Could not find the 027 hands though so used what I had available. :grin: It’s odd that some parts are so hard to find. What does Seiko do if a customer needs replacement hands...

Re: Help with Seiko 775 'turtle' ceramic bezel inserts

Never bought from him myself and don't usually do bezel replacements but the last project I did would benefit from a nice bezel insert, I like the ceramic ones but need to research a bit more. If I find anything I will share.
