Here is one I did a while back:






The 729X models don't get the same love as their cushion-cased brothers, that's for sure. But they're great watches!!

The closest I'll probably get to a vintage Seamaster 300...a 6309 Seikomaster 300!

Here's two for you...

6139-7290 with heavily shaved case, hand-enamelled rotating ring, modified crown, Noah Fuller dial (relumed), 320W10GN00 domed crystal and aftermarket 6105 style hands:



The 7548-700H "disaster watch" with another shaved case, relumed dial and hands, Planet Ocean insert, modified crown, 320W10GN00 domed crystal, sterilized back and the GREAT new "shark" mesh. Am [i]really[/i] loving the mesh bracelet, it's meaty but so very comfy. The case and bracelet are media blasted to my favorite low lustre MIL. SPEC. style finish:

Not as elaborate as some of the others, but I like it. Here is my GMT Rally Mod (7040 dial with natuarally aged original lume, modern SKX hands, MKII GMT insert, and a Hirsch Rally strap):

Here's my offering...

it was a little beat up to begin with:



but with some TLC, a few aftermarket parts and a bespoke dial it's now this:





it's now on a jubilee, but no photos yet...
