    Agreed - I'm not a fan of his pips!

    Here is the final version of Goldfinger with DLW installed.

    The cold steel bezel looks great with the gold insert

    What I want is that dial but with minutes indices on it.....it looks empty without the minute markers on it. This looks amazing, but with the chapter ring not having the minute markers it seems....off.

    Does anyone know who could do that work? Adding the minute markers?

    I would love to see that gold chapter ring in a stock SRP775

    The next thing I'll change on my 775 is the bezel. The overly shiny finish just seems to clash with the gold ceramic . That's what I like about the blasted Seiko stain bezel, but I'm trying to stop myself from spending more on parts than I paid for the watch! Wonder if I could brush the stock bezel with a dremel or something

    It's easy to do and costs less than ten bucks.

    Use this: http://www.esslinger.com/fiberglass-...sh-extra-thin/

    Remove the bezel and brush it fully. I've done it to two SKX watches and it's perfect. Takes only a few minutes.

    I'd heard of the scratch pens but didn't know if they would be up to the task. Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a go!

    The latest state of my SRP775. Just added a deployant clasp, and finally have a signed crown en route.

    Currently:
    - Dagaz MM300-style second hand
    - Crystal Times dd sapphire
    - OSC coin edge bezel
    - DLW ceramic bezel insert which I've painted to match the gold a bit better
