Nice! Love everything about it, except the top hat. That's just my preference as I'm not a fan of any dome.

I have one of those dials somewhere. I’m also going to put it in a Turdle, but mine will be a little different.

I thought about adding more color, like the Padi red minute hand, but these Tuna style hands seemed like an interesting choice.

It's nice that crystaltimes recently began selling the white chapter ring to match.

I;m going to use Sumo hands, but may use a red seconds hand.

A red second hand would add a great detail to the watch and play off the red pip real nice.

Damn that looks good. I put a little red on the second hole on the second hand to break it up.

I sent it back to Duarte at NEWW and I'm having him paid tip red while it's there.

I didn't like the tophat with this mod, so I'm having a regular low domed sapphire installed, with purple AR.

Great looking mod but have to agree about the top hat crystal. It's cool but it blocks too much of the view of the dial around the edges.
