Default What do you guys think of this cobbled rally diver?

I've had it for a while, you may recognize it, but I just did the beads of rice. I'm torn between a different white dial or a full Soxa conversion.

I agree with D, if it were mine I would go for the full Soxa Doxa.

I think I can drill the crown tube way out and put a stainless steel screw in there to fill it, then reshape the case. Then drill a new one at 3 O'clock. Then place a big order with Jake... Should look pretty decent I think once it's done. Soxa it is....

Aloha ,
That is a very nice dial in that one. Nothing like that comes around over here.
But SOXA it is.

Sweet beads of rice, is that the original bracelet that you've restored?

I think the dial looks fine as it is
