Well, looks like my idea is good, and most important of all, feasible. I started thinking about a 6309 because of Noah's Tsunami, but then I reasoned that I could have the real deal. The best part is that I doubt that I'll spend the same on a nice 6309 as I would on a Tsunami.
Oh I don't know about that....I bought a very nice and all original 6309-7049 a couple of years ago and depending how you go the costs do add up...
Flat Sapphire $ 50
Dial/Hand/Bezel Pip relume $140
Junked 6309-7290 f/Farsi day wheel $ 35
Domed Sapphire (because it's cooler) $ 45
Hacking Kit $ 60
Total (not including the myriad of bracelet/strap options bought) ~ $685 - not much less than a Tsunami but worth every penny!
