    Orient Mods --- Show Em Off!!!

    Greeings,

    We needed a new thread. I was getting bored with the name thread and the Mako color thread (although the red and green fascinate me).... So... Lets have a thread where you show us pictures of your Orient Mod.

    Here is Mine:

    Watch: CEM65001BOrient Black Mako http://orientwatchusa.com/watch.php?id=69

    Mod: Replaced the Mineral crystal with a domed Blue AR Sapphire crystal.

    Reason: I have granite counters in my house. Granite is harder than Mineral crystal but softer than Sapphire. As you can imagine, my mineral crystal was scratched frequently.

    Where did you get the sapphire? I had a spring bar failure (Orient if your listening your stock spring bars are crap, talk to the mothership and figure out how to get the fatty Seiko bars in the Mako) which led to my Mako kissing the concrete. Needless to say I'm interested in a sapphire upgrade.

    I got that sapphire from yobokies. He has the blue AR coated domed sapphire. If you would like flat sapphire with no AR coating, they are available from the orientalwatchsite.com. Go there and send a PM to garwal.

    So many awesome new watches out there, too bad they are all sized for the giant Yeti, when you build a human sized watch I might be interested.

    Are the sapphires on yours flat or domed? If domed could you post a shot of the watch showing the dome in the crystal?

    Thanks,

    They are domed, just as soon as my camera battery charges back up I will try to take some profile shots that show the dome but it's the Sumo sapphire so there isn't much to see and there isn't much to photograph


    got the Sumo sapphire and MOD hands from yobokies installed in the dolphin!
