Recommended Posts

Some of you may recall my first attempt with customizing a Raffles dial

This was the first one..

Before and after.

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 pretty cool.

Keep an eye on the M2M forum as I think I might be clearing this and a few others out of my collection to fund some future builds..

Comments and questions always welcomed.

Thanks for looking.
