    Yeah, know what you mean. Can’t help thinking though, that if Phong increased the size of numerals on the insert slightly, it would be pretty damn close. It’s a hobby for nitpicking

    Thanks! Yes, quite right. It’s an older build and ingod44 hasn’t been around for 2-3 years now. Agree with you about the tip of the second hand, it could be better. There’s an ETA second hand from Rafflestime with a more pointed tip (minute hand is wrong in this set though). http://rafflestime.com/submariner-milsub-seamaster-300-watch-hands-for-eta-2824-2836-sword-yellow/ All the second hands I’ve seen need the tail trimmed too. Which is a bit of a pain to say the least! Ruby’s 5517 dial is pretty good. The Tritium T slightly too bold perhaps: http://rubyswatch.com/Products/replacement-parts/sub-5517 MQ good but pricy: http://vintagewatchesmq.com/minhquy/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=800&category_id=146&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1

    5517 MilSub. A very difficult to build to get right on a budget. Here’s my recipe below, by no means perfect: Cartel midcase and back WSO bezel assembly Phong insert Yuki pearl Ingod44 dial Mixed handset, second hand tail trimmed Gen T19 service crystal Gen 703 crown Gen ETA 2846 movement Phoenix NATO Admiralty grey strap, original supplier to MOD
