Yours has a black bezel insert because I did both the orange and the brown in custom hand-applied enamel for Gabe. They were black as well.Spencer said:wow, look at how faded mine is compared to the one you have.
Holy crap. And why does mine have a black retaining ring instead of an orange one?
swedefreak said:Spencer, I might have a spare indicator as well as dial. Will have to dig around a bit. I still haven't done one of these in blue and would like to explore that choice.
Also, I might be able to use this dial for a mod, back to orange but the Seiko logo and other text will be lost. The imprinted chapter ring might be able to be saved, too.
It's just too hard to tell without the watch in hand. If you want to send it over, I'm happy to have a look and offer an opinion or two.
swedefreak said:Glad that dial did the trick. Even though it's not a "resist" it's a nice example with clean lume. Pix?
I'll let you know when then 6119 lands and give you a couple ideas on what can be done.
Thanks, Gabe. Your note makes me think of one of my eldest daughter's comments at the height of her rebellion: "You're upset because the voices in my head only talk to me!"Isthmus said:Jonathan, all your magic with enamel is starting to give me ideas. It's getting harder and harder to ignore the voices!!!
Thanks again for all the wonderful work you do.
