Looks great Steph. Is the lume treated with some kind of highly thinned paint like wash?

Great looking mod. Did you remove the insert and sand it down to get that look?

Whitewash of the bezel then? Or was it a new bezel insert?

Why be so cryptic? Aren't the fourms supposed to be about sharing information?

Nice, what kind of process did you use for dial and hands ?

Is it painted with tinted clear paint ?

You can find info on replica forums. They all use these methods to make their fakes look more authentic.

Do you sell any of your mods or do orders?

You were able to get that effect with coffee? How strong a cup? I've only ever been able to use bleach to lighten a skx bezel. Worked quite nicely tho.

Think I saw a video somewhere on how the dial lumes are done. Just using cotton buds soaked with coffee, touch up the lumes, letting it dry and repeating the process until you acheive desired result. As for the day/date wheel that seems to be a mistery, perhaps just soaking the wheel in coffee?

Bleach, I suspect. Just donít leave it in there too long. Soak briefly, rinse and dry, repeat until faded to your liking. May even want to dilute the bleach first.

I think you're referring to the bezel insert bleaching?

On watches with real patina, it's the lume that ages, rarely the day/ date wheel.

Are you referring to the bezel insert or the day/date wheel?

Would have to be the bezel. Bleach, I'd think, would destroy the lume and the dial finish. Reading through the post above, it's sounds like bezel soak in bleach, dial soak in coffee.

I was just guessing regarding the coffee, Tom. The bezel Iím sure could be sun bleached, donít know how long it would take. Been meaning to place a Pepsi bezel (from skx) on the dashboard of my truck and monitor what happens.
