    Strap color with the dark edges is perfect, IMO. Seconds hand looks fine. Any other finishing touches for this project?

    What bracelet did you get for it?

    Oh, and, don't *ever* sell this watch, but if you do, I call first dibs!

    James,

    Thanks for all the compliments. I can say, without a doubt, that this is the best build I've done yet. And, yes I do have one or two more tweaks (crown and crown guards) and then I'll be completely done.

    I plan on getting a "riveted" oyster for it, but haven't ordered it yet.

    You definitely have dibs on this one.

    Re: vegetable oil, I'd avoid it if possible, most vegetable oils will go rancid over time. I use Obenauf's for most darkening/waterproofing/leather treatment.

    Re: What MKII Are You Wearing?

    It's a beauty - I like the profile with that crystal - acrylic?

    As far as oiling to darken, I'd just add that some neatsfoot oils can irritate sensitive skin, like on the underside of your wrist or lower arm, especially if the strap is wet from water - anyway, that was my experience.

    Anyways, that's a beauty -Thanks for posting!

    -(It is going to be awesome on that Oyster bracelet, too.)


    Oh, and this what I'm wearing, today.

    The 'original MKII' for me, my Ollech & Wajs based MKII (told by original owner that it was one of fifty Bill modified in the early days, when he was still selling mod parts, just before he started his own line of fine watches.)

    -Cheers to all, have a great day!

    I never get tired of watching the subtle nuances of the dial and the light, like gazing into the coals of a campfire....

    Cheers to all- Have a good night.
