A Two-Tone Sea Horse
Inspired by another collector's whimsy: http://www.watchrepairtalk.com/topic...eiko-re-cased/ I decided to create a two-tone Sea Horse using a NOS J13082 case, yellow dial and hands, a NOS bracelet, and an seviceable 66 caliber movement I picked up on the BAY:
I am not satisfied with the bracelet endpieces. They are have a brushed finish and are the wrong shape for the lugs.

Great Sea Horse dial you picked up off me there and then put together really well John.
Fantastic looking combination.
Is the bracelet Seiko?
