Added a Tiger-concepts Orange GMT Hand to my Josh 1655

It makes a world of difference.  This one also has Omega Flightmaster hands, an Ingod44 dial, gen crown & tube and Clark tropic plexi.  A new bezel and some more case shaping is up next :)

That looks fantastic. Did it come with the bracelet?

Where do you get the Flight Master hands? Which Clark is that one? Where will you get the new bezel?

I waffle back and forth on this one. Sometimes I really like it and other times I think the dial is too busy.

Nice work with this.

I bought it with the hands installed, but Ofrei should have them.  I will have to check on the crystal.  I have a Phong bezel that a bit nicer.  The bracelet is from Yuki.  It's really not correct for the watch.

Pretty! Is it the ETA option that uses the Flightmaster hands? They really look good.

I did some case reshaping on this one and added a Mk 2(?) dial from Ingod44. It came out pretty well, but I want to get another and do it again. I think I can get it right the next time.

Nice.  I like the flat top 4 on the new bezel you installed, and also on Preacher's.  I know there are many different and slight variations of the bezel font/print for this watch - is the stock one from the Cartel considered to be OK based on any of the gen variations?

 

Does the Cartel come with a bracelet and was this the 21j or the ETA version?  My guess is ETA, since doesn't Omega use decorated ETA movements in a lot of their watches?
