    Here's a bezel, case and hand mod


    And a complete custom using a vintage dial on a K35 movement

    I try to answer all the questions in one message.

    I have a tendency to send the whole watches to Favinov. Usually he has some very good ideas like the hand selection. Also all Komandirskies (350) were equipped with Amphibia crystals (or actually tension ring). This was made to improve the waterproofing. And at the same time the bezel was relumed and coated with some sort of nano-ceramic coating to enhance durability.

    Strap of the white Komandirskie comes from eBay / koche-vikto and he still have those.

    I haven't found any faults within the lume and it seems long lasting. I can read these watches in low light conditions.

    Yep, it's a top coat. The watch was only last week, but the Honda emblems were 2 years ago, then abused by the rain dust, wind, 55mph bugs, me, you name it. Both are aluminum, I think. It's made for rims, so we'll see how hardy it is in the long run. I have high hopes.

    I taped up the crystal and case an sprayed it in the back yard. The can isn't really made for such tiny work. I went from all angles for even coverage. I waited maybe 7min out of the recommend 10, then did it again. I'm impatient.

    I got a little over spray and took it off with acetone, then re-brushed the lugs so they'd all match again. That one has a SS case.

    Change date wheel from black to white and slapped on the Komandirskie black hands. With all the numbers and the condensed info on the dial I felt a smaller hour hand was more suited.

    Do seiko hands need to be reamed or crimped down?
