  1. Trying out some leather today from B&S... very comfortable right out of the box.
  2. The lume is flat on mine as is typical for a 1675 Type C gilt dial.
  3. He's in Los Angeles. He'll work any way you want. Send parts, send a whole watch for upgrades or buy a finished watch. Great communicator returning almost all emails within 10-15 minutes. Sends progress pics and great for sourcing parts. He sources the same Vietnam cases MQ does but charges 40% less. Also, does the best lume application I've ever experienced among modders.
  4. • Vietnam case • Custom Yodog deep crenelated bezel • Vietnam Gilded dial (Yodog applied lume) • Gen insert • Gen 25-116 plexi • Gen 5.3mm crown • A2836 gmt movement • Hands... not certain but probably a mix of Raffles and other similar
  5. I just received this build this morning from Yodog. His work and eye for the vintage/nos "looK" is over the top. More pics to follow once I decided on strap or bracelet. ••• apologies again for another double post. Not sure why this keeps happening. •••

  7. Apologies for the repeated posts, not sure what the problem is with RWG. I've never had this problem before.
  8. Here's a great thread explaining what the differences are between the Cartel vs Vietnam 1675 case sets... https://forum.replica-watch.info/forum/vintage-watches/312368-cartel-1675-cases-vs-vietnam-gen-spec-cases-a-photo-comparison
  9. Swapped out the Pepsi insert for the black FF service insert (with the more correct font for this mk 5 dial build). The Pepsi insert will go into the Type C gilt dial/PCG build and is more correct for that watch.
  10. Clarification... meant to say (in the OP) the movement is a Swiss 2846 converted to GMT.
  11. As you can see in the last pic, the hands patina is closer to the plots patina compared to the first pic. Because the lume in the hands has a smooth semi-gloss finish, they tend to be a little reflective , so can look lighter depending on the angle of bright light on the surface. This doesn't happen with the plots as that lume is a flat textured finish. As for the bezel I agree, it's still new and was never polished. I may remove it at some point and finish it. At the moment I'm focused on a 1675 PCG build, so refinement of the OP watch is on hold.
