This has been driving me crazy. Maybe I am crazy to begin with though... I want to buy a mechanical movement to assemble in my own custom watch. Partly because it would be unique, and also because I think it will be cheaper. I can pick up an ETA 2824-2 TOP grade for $400 US!
Anyways, say I want to die the engraving text "TWENTY-FIVE 25 JEWELS SWISS MADE" in red or blue, to make it stand out against a silver rotor. What kind of application tool/dye do I need?
I got this idea from the wonderful guys over at Patek Phillipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGPj...utu.be&t=2m50s
Take a look so you know what I'm talking about! Seems like he just lathers it on, and possibly wipes the excess before hanging up to dry.
