    Nebi is a German Vostok modder. He handmakes the bezels for friends (not for sale to public).

    Does anyone know someone that can gold plate watch parts?
    I would like a set of paddle hands, bezel, and crown, in 18K gold plate.

    Wife: Don't you have enough watches?
    Me: Don't you have enough earrings?
    Wife: So, you're saying that watches are jewelry for Men?
    Me: That's exactly what I'm saying.
    Wife: Let's go shopping.

    And that's how I got my last watch...

    Thanks for the links. Shame it won't plate stainless steel. Ideally I was thinking of plating a stainless bezel and crown.
    I may just use a brass bezel from dr.seikostain. I suppose the brass tarnishes quickly though..
    Maybe I will just get a whole 090 gold plated, case, bezel, bracelet, everything!

    This just left Germany this morning. I am looking forward to putting it on another 090 of mine. Any thoughts on which insert would look best?
    I want to do something different to a Planet Ocean, maybe a Fifty Fathoms one from Dagaz?

    This isn't one of mine. But I liked it as it is so bought it from AM Watches (Ebay).
    Had I purchased the base Scuba Dude watch, bezel, and NATO strap it would have worked out the same price anyway.

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    Sometimes the simplest mods are the best. Just a bezel change on this one. I feel the red/blue Pepsi bezel has been done to death at this stage. Don't get me wrong, it's a classic Rolex GMT Master look; but it has just been copied too many times. But the black/blue bezel still looks different as it's not so common. I think the blue hand gives it the latest Rolex GMT Master look. 120512 (Meranom, bezel (boris_gvb Ebay), bezel insert (Ebay).

    A lumed bezel?
    I'm a sucker for lumed bezels though. :)

    I was thinking of a Fifty Fathoms style glass lumed one. But can't find a curved profile one like the original Blancpain. The one I have seen are flat profile which won't look so good with the domed crystal. I may just use an aluminium one from Dagaz.
