    What color is the AR on your crystal? Purple or Blue?
    Yea, initially my design called for the 171 dial, but Harold doesn't have them and I didn't want to waste time sourcing, so I went with Harold's dial. A MM dial would be even sweeter! The AR is purple. The right pilot hands would probably look bomb-diggity, but I was going for that real PMMM flavor. =p

    That looks fantastic! Could you tell us more about it?

    Monocrom,

    Thanks. Actually, I was about to tell Safetyfast how much I like that 171 mod - the bezel with the polished lip - I really like that against the swell 171 dial now with sword hands.

    Anyway the one on my wrist at the mouse has Bob Thayer, Jr.'s, bezel. That's the distinctive thing. The dial and hands are Mk II and then Bob likes to black in the chapter ring since the dial has its own second marks - it makes the watch face look like it's down in a dark hole. Bob has a good eye for what could be. I like it. The glass was replaced with a flat AR coated sapphire; I did that for utility as I wear this thing a lot but actually the thing gives the watch a very distinctive look, especially around the edges although I'd be hard-pressed to describe it exactly.

    Bill

    Not my watch but it looks like the black PO bezel insert from yobokies.

    It's the yobokies PO insert on a 10watches triple grip bezel. I see that Jake B is now listing a similar built watch but with the plain seiko insert.
