  2. Some of you may recall my first attempt with customizing a Raffles dial This was the first one.. Before and after. [/url] [url=https://clickpix.org/image/ZhSXQE] Then I came across this gen on ebay....and I was in Awe with the dial.. I had to replicate something similar the water damaged / tropical look is spectacular So I ordered another Raffles dial and went to work.. results : Its not exact but it does have the same feel to it...I really like how it turned out. The hands could be aged a bit more to match the dial but other than that I think its

  6. This post is way old news but I figured I would update it as I had recently completed a commando build.

  8. this thread is 3+ years old . He is done with the build and has probably sold it off....lol
  9. Ill play. Over the last few years I have recently gotten into firearms..and talk about appropriate timing considering the current situation of society. No pics of my rifles but here is one 1016 with some 7.62 x 39 surplus ammo for my sks and a pic of my sks with tapco kit .
  10. This is an interesting topic and one that has been clearly overlooked by the watch community It would be interesting to know what watchmakers do with all this radium lume dust and how they treat it . I would like to think that when they do a relume they are wearing ppe and doing it over a vent hood however that just means that the particles are trapped in the filters or ducting . a little can go a long way in this case I think this topic has been swept under the rug so that not to scare off the potential buyers of vintage watches...if it was considered and investigated I think more peo
  11. Nicely done. I think the commando is perfect in a 36mm size Being an explorer aficionado I had to have a commando in my collection. I had one member on RWI working on a commando decal dial for me but I think they stalled out on the project or busy with other projects.
