Default Golden Isofrane RS buckle + Golden Tuna = .......you decide for yourself,,,,,,,

I Think you guys might enjoy this............................










[color=rgb(51, 51, 51)]A few months ago I mentioned in a thread how cool it would be to have a TiN coated RS buckle for my Taiwan Tuna.......A few days later... [color=rgb(51, 51, 51)]I receive an email from our member "Buddy 13" stating he can have it done.....needless to say I jumped on the opportunity.

[color=rgb(51, 51, 51)]
[color=rgb(51, 51, 51)]I just want to say thank you Etienne!!!!! YOU'RE THE MAN [color=rgb(51, 51, 51)] ....Thanks for making this dream come true my friend


This buckle has had an amazing journey....made in Germany mailed from Isofrane in Austria to California mail it Malta, TiN process done mail it back to California.....This buckle has traveled 20,000+ miles!!!




Here are the results......

IMHO many seeing this Beautiful Matching Look will be wanting to have one made


I am not a great Tuna Fan yet Yours I find Very Attractive. Any time I see work done


with the Quality & finish in mind iit renews my Broken Faith in Finding Craftsmen


that will really care about PRIDE in there work not what they can get away with.


Beautiful Watch Shannon Rewarding considering the Effort you all put in

Thanks for the complements and kind words my friends


I'm really happy with the results......like HKS said...."Perfection"


Apparently Etienne's friend is a master at this TiN PVD process....the color match is perfect.


Thanks again and have a great week


Cheers

Outstanding

Really like the color match of the two and the presentation of the watch and band together is bold.
One of a kind.

Thanks for showing.
Daniel

I like the concept however, i would do that on a SEIKO (strap) buckle.

The Tuna came on a XXL Z-22 with Seiko TiN buckle....I'm sure it would be good for a 10" wrist I'm just not a fan of the Z-22 or B-22 or any other Seiko divers rubber compound. I love the looks of Seiko straps just not the way they feel.


Cheers

Shannon, this looks marvellous! Fantastic work.

Etienne is one hell of a guy, in my book. Always liked him. He's missing in action lately, here. I'd like to see him posting more.......oh, and of course...you too!
