I've got inspired by similar project that I've noticed here in WUS ->
So I decided to do my own, except maybe less brutalising work
It started out as brand new Parnis homage to PAM california...
First I brought a watch to watchmaker to disassemble it in pieces not to damage internals during vandalizing work. Next step was applying a lot of sandpaper work to case (different grades of sandpaper).
Time to apply red'ish base paint to add some rusty feel.
In the meantime started to work on dial and hands.
That's how it looked before action.
Time for some cooking.
Carefully tried not to overcook. Ended up exactly as I wanted - nice brown'ish tan, ala vintage 'tritium'. It was more difficult with the hands - for some reason those didn't 'age' so well, so I had to put them in open fire - that worked fine
Then again some work with sandpaper on case, crystal and strap - now watch was ready for assembling.
So after many hours of work it ended up like this ->
I have to say that it was quite educating journey and I'm quite happy with a result.
Hope you find it interesting
That's all Folks!
