    Re: What MKII Are You Wearing?

    I just got back from the Post Office where I picked up my new vintage leather strap from Time Traveler. A perfect match for my custom vintage Sub. The color was not my first choice, but I do like it. I'm hoping it will darken a little with wear.

    I also recently installed a white seconds hand. Comments?

    I like it. Both the new seconds hand and the strap look great. It will darken with use. Or you can do it yourself with neatsfoot oil or any vegetable oil you have in the kitchen.

    Thanks marchone. I thought about putting some Neatsfoot on it, but I may just let it age with time along with the acrylic crystal. I'm trying really hard to just let the scratches be, but I can feel my OCD taking over.

    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.

    Wow! Matthew. Grand slam. Outta 'da park, Brutha!

    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.
