    Yes ofcourse it works. Just look at the gen pieces [emoji1] yeah the case got a few nags here and there but theyre not that visible unless looking at a macro picture. The edges are by far softer now compared to when i first got the midcase. I can soften the edges by polishing the case. Ive done it on a 5513 i had but im determined that this one is only going to get natural patina. I build the watch as NOS condition so that i can enjoy the watch as it is and have a history behind every single scratch.

    Natural aging takes time my friend. This is the chamfers freshly done: This is how it looks after a everyday use for a half year as a toolwatch. Im working as a constructor/carpenter so you can imagine what the watch has gone through:
  5. I actually only had to bend one endlink just a tad and shave off 0.2mm on the other. Ive worn it well since i got it and it is only getting better the more wear and tare it gets. In my oppinion its more than a sparkling turd. But it does need alot time and modifications to get it just right.
  6. They still are crap. After i ruined one bracelet i bought this one from @hologramet who had modified it to fit one of his midcases. With a few smaller modifications it fits my midcase like it was ment to be.
  7. Yuki endlinks mated to the case and rebrushed. Still have to flatten the pointy rivets.
  8. Yuki should have them in stock. Or you could cut out the middlehand and get them straight from the source in vietnam. Either way even the improved one needs to be rebrushed to appear more genlike.

    I really want to see this finished. It seems as you got what it takes to make the build one of a kind [emoji1]

  11. Based on the pictures above id say the phong case delivers excellence.
  12. Im on the same page. I just cant live with the flaws. Heres my 5512
