I’m swapping dials and bezel inserts between the two. I think they’ll both end up better looking.

I posted these on Instagram yesterday but forgot to post them here. I swapped the dial/hands and bezel inserts to make two much improved (my opinion, of course) watches.

Love the way the 51 turned out, I really like the gold hands. It kinda has a two tone look but not really because neither the bezel nor the crown are gold, thankfully IMO.

The new Strapcode bracelet looks better than the Seiko bracelet.

I don’t know. The links on the OEM are a bit too rounded compared to the end links and this one seems to have went too far in the other direction. Looks nicely finished though.

I find it looks great, it matches the style of the lugs (sharp curves).

CrystalTimes new "top hat" crystal looks great. Like the Seaforth sapphire.

I don’t like the top hat on the Samurai. It looks good on the NAFT, though.

I like the black Samurai and need to get one so I can participate in “Samurai Saturday”.

I have Weiss Wednesday and Sinn Sunday covered (see the pun?) and the Vertex can work for Field Watch Friday, but I can't play on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
