I have been working this TST since March, I had most of the parts I needed and an Idea of what I wanted to Wind up with (pun intended). I had to wait for gaskets, Jewels, Bridges, Custom Mill work from My Favorite Member. Yes, I have a Favorite Professional. This Watch has been through many changes, Only because I wanted to wear it in between adding parts etc.... So now It is Buttoned up, Completed, Finished....The upgrades are this...Started with a 6309 Movement, Jeweled Mainspring Ports, 6306 Hacking Lever, 6306 Train wheel bridge, Both NOS, Custom Milled Center Wheel bridge, New Mainspring, Black Day/Date wheels, 1000M 7C46 Dial, NOS 6309 H/M hands, Second Hand from a Golden Tuna to accent the Brass Crown, Which I Love, Thanks a Mint John. All in All The result is better than I expected. Without further Ado ...Oh, The Strap...WatchGecko 22mm Divers Strap, None Better for myself. And everything is SOOOOO Smooth !!!!

That is awesome! That crown is outstanding. Sure sounds like you put a lot of thought into it and it definitely shows. Ain't it great to watch a project like this evolve? I have my TST winging its way home from Durate after a bit of a refresh as well. Should be here on the 17th, so we'll see. Your TST is the bee's knees my friend .
