I found this one interesting. Pair with a Black Sailcloth with Yellow stitch.
What do you think? :think:

Any idea what Harold charges for the 007 mods? Probably more than a Turdle.

He was asking $450 for this one about a year and a half ago. It's available, if you're interested. Ready for a domed crystal and a coin edge bezel.

Meh-it looks aiight (never a fan of the IWC) but I can't get past the blatant IWC copy. There are probably a bunch of people that either don't know what it is or don't care that would dig that though.

That mod looks a lot like an aquatimer, however the small case seems to be putting me off on it.

I own the IWC in question which is why I thought it looked ok on 1st viewing. If you like it then you like it.

Case is 42mm with 22mm lugs so it is not small. The base watch is the SNZG13 and family.

I get that most watches are at least loosely modeled after the classic Rolex Sub, but I really don't like replica type copies like this one.

TY Carlos. For some reason I thought it was only 40mm.

To add to this, this watch is not a diver, no screw down crown and 100m WR... So you really like it you can get the looks but not the functionality of the original...
