    Custom Pilot Watch

    Check out the latest custom watch I made. It is a pilot watch with brown strap.
    I used a 44mm case with clear case back and the Seagull 6497 17 jewel movement. It is a mechanical hand wind movement.
    The dial is a pilot dial with sub seconds dial at 9 o'clock. It has luminous markers and hands.





    Let me know what you guys think about it.

    Great looking watch! May I ask, did you do anything extra besides buying watch parts and assemble them together?
    I am just curious. Basic parts all together cost US$100 under. Strap is actually the most expensive parts in my case.
    The factory dial lume is pretty lousy.

    Here is mine:

    Correct me if I am wrong but there is no Seagull 6497, but a Seagull 3600, a Unitas clone.
