Those both look really nice. I like 777 the best out of the 77X.

The 777 looks great blasted. I particularly like how the bezel came out. I always felt the bezels on these, 6309's and SKS's looked "soft" due to the polishing done to them. Blasting sharpens it up nicely.

Bill, Who's gonna be supplying the coin edge bezels?
Are they gonna be taking SKX inserts or custom ones?

An on line guy that sells on a popular auction site
that is not a fan of watch forums.

I have two of his bezel for my 007/009 project, they are great.
I chose to use Janiko One Step Closer bezel on my 009 due to color and finish.
I also have a crystal inbound for my SRP775 from him

From the info he has shared with me, the SRP7XX bezels will take the
common readily available inserts

He should have production samples soon and hopes to have them for sale in a couple of months

I'm not big fan of beadblasted finishes, but the skx looks good with that black bezel.

The 6r15 movements I've had worked great, but the stock movement on my 775 with the same features has worked as good. I don't know if I'm missing something, but I just don't see a reason for the swap.

I'd be wary of his machined products. I bought his answer to the murphy bezel and aside from having rough edges it wouldn't fit. His response to me was to install it with a "heavy duty press" so basically to use it you have to put it on with a hydraulic press... permanently.

Very nice look, especially with the blasted beads of rice. might look good to swap in black day/date wheels, too.

Thank you

I thought about swapping it out several times. However I can see the darn thing now so I'm keeping it:-)
