My Pal who runs his Dad's store which is my favorite AD came up with a project for me. This is another piece from the treat box he got from his main watch distributor/supplier that he shared with me.
It's an interesting Pulsar kinetic hard use sport watch. It's a good build but ugly as hell colour wise. I was taken by how really thick the crystal is on this build, 3mm. Stainless frame with vulcanized rubber strap. Really a pretty nice sportster that wears comfortable.
If you could please try to imagine what it looked like assembled with that lovely pukish lime green casing......yikes!
For this custom I first roughened the green bits to accept the coatings. I used Krylons super bond paints for plastic. 9 coats in total.
Firstly, 3 coats of aluminum metallic with the standard roughening between coats. Next, I applied 4 coats of K's flat black sprayed from a distance of 2 feet to allow it to rain down on the parts to give it a speckled finish. Finally I applied 2 heavy coats of K's satin clear coat.
5 hours total in the paint process.
Reassembled the piece and there you have it a nice tactical looking hard use sporty to beat on.
I enjoyed the build, it was great that I was given free reign over what I wanted to do with it
