I think it's over-designed. Simple is better. Plain black chapter ring, matte bezel, etc.

Agreed, dump the HE valve and add drilled lugs.

I'd hit it as is, although agree with the above mods as well. I would also paint the entire seconds hand red... when you're on the move (even just doing sit ups) it's often hard to see the tiny tip of a seconds hand - I like the whole thing to stand out.

I had my old vortex modified with the "U1 treatment" and I thought it looked cool
