    gold and silver neptune amphibian

    Dear friends, The idea is already sitting in my mind for a long time but unfortunately I do not know how to work with Photoshop.
    Can someone prepare an example and maybe we'll start a cool project for 2019?

    I'm actually making my own. Some of the parts are still in the mail. Starting with this:

    This bezel:

    Then some gold hands from either seikostain or favinov, haven't decided which I like better yet. Will probably also change the case.

    Could do this with off-the-shelf parts, provided they ever come back in stock.

    Any 960 Amphibian, the gilded hands for $10, crystal with gilt ring for $5, Dial 679 (see model 090679M) for $6, and the brass bezel 42k-2 for $6. Sadly the hands and bezel are currently not in stock.

    Edit: Forgot the new date wheel, but Fergfour beat me to it, anyway.

    This awesome “Cuba/Castro Rolex” project sadly did see the light due to, I am led to believe, issues with the Cie producing the project . The rational behind was a take on Fidel Castro famously wearing 2 submariners.

    It can be done quite easily & the suggested price at the time was around USD 150/€ 135

    Steel 110 case,
    After market Golden Mercedes hands,
    That type of dial brown tobacco “à la Tudor Black Bay Bronze”
    Lumed Gold indices,
    Bezel with a red 12 o’clock red triangle + gold numbers/markers

    Et voila ... it’s done : a “Roller n’ Vostok” at a very affordable cost which would be way nicer & far cooler than the original ...

    That is very very nice Sideways 2 - even the strap goes so well ... Congrats !!
    2019 is the 60 anniversary of the Cuban Revolution ... All we need is the dial & we have a "meaningful" project

    The dimensions of the Vostok 120 case are very close to the older (1990's) Rolex submariner 11613 case. Personally I like the older Rolex case better

    You're right, the wristwatch will be more like rolex but that's not the intention.
    I still think that the combination of colors with the neptune will be amazing.
    Can someone prepare an example ?
