wow,

those colors really work well together, that black dial is the
perfect foil for those colors, and the purple sapphire is the icing
on the cake there...nice job!

i am going to try a very similar mod, i'm trying to find someone to lume the blue bezel insert with the same color green lume...i'm using neon blue plongeur hands from dragonshroud...i don't know how long it'll be before i get the bezel back, i don't even have a "yes" on sending it anywhere yet...tried everest a motor city watch works so far...

Blue bezel seems really fitted and looks nice! Is it click well too?

here's how a mod inspired by this one came out....same gen 1
case, same dial. i modded the case very subtly, i always feel
the moster lugs are too complicated, and this was a beat-up
old watch anyway...i sent it to MCWW, jay did some great work....
re-lumed the dial and hands, kanji date, cerakoted the bezel,
re-lumed the bezel (this was so worth it) purple ar crystal,
bead-blasted all....when i look into it, it's like looking off a
small boat, down into the sea, that watery green and inky black.
thank you for the inspiration!
