    Re: Seiko "Planet Monster"

    To address the problem of the holes left after removing a chapter ring on this mod, I added a drop of the appropriately colored auto touch up paint to the back of the dial. The paint is drawn into the hole by capillary action and did a pretty good job of filling it in with no visible brush marks. I'm sure you could do the same with good results. The holes in my dial are at 5, 20, 35 and 50.

    I tend to agree about the finish on the bezel. Please tell and show us more about what you did to your bezel.

    Nothing really exotic I guess. Just sanded it down a bit with some 1000 grit sandpaper after removing the bezel insert. It isn't a very dramatically different look, but it is less shiny. The sort of crenelated section of the bottom side of the bezel matches the finish on the top of the case better now, I think.
