    Double dome from Crystal Times.
    Hands from DLW.
    Strap from Watchgecko.

    The crystal has purple AR and goes right to the edge of the bezel, excellent. The strap is supple and soft, and smells of vanilla, excellent. The hands; lume not as bright as the stock, or Dagaz lume, and the seconds hand refused to fit so went back to the stock which clicked in at the 1st attempt. Not so excellent.

    was wondering what crystaltimes' purple AR looked like, does it go from purple to red just as it seems? was thinking of that crystal if i ever went for a 773 =)

    Just discovered this thread, some great looking mods - I'm looking for a ceramic bezel for my currently untouched SRP777. some nice ones on DLW, but the one I'd go for (sub vintage black) is out of stock. Are there any alternatives out there?Name:  20161105_103153.jpg

    Blue AR on the SKX, purple on the turtle (purtle!). The purple AR is more subtle, and has nice blue and pinkish tones. Lovely irl

    Here's these two in the dark. Notice how there's a certain weakness in the lume on the DLW hands.

    Any suggestions on where to source a dial that would be as close as possible to the 6105 or 6309. I have a seiko skx173 dial that I love but it is too small.
    I prefer just the date not the day of the week.

    1. the Sumo chapter ring is not a direct replacement for the Turtle chapter ring. They're close in size but the Turtle has a "recessed lip" or L shaped bottom, if you will, that means any flat bottomed chapter rings won't work

    2. Has anyone found a source for the crystal gasket for the SRPxxx Turtle?

    you just have to wait a bit, DLW normally re-stocks after some weeks. Does not make sense to use a second choice part....
    and DLW is the only one who has ceramic inserts at the moment as far as I know

    Just checked out his FB page. Some seriously impressive skills on display. No crystal gasket? - no problem - I'll just machine one from a solid block of nylon...

    He's a little pricey tho - ouch!

    Trying to decide Ridwan vs. Yobokies for the coin-edge bezel. Despite the ouchey price difference I think the nod has to go to Ridwan for the much crisper machining:
