I just won an auction for a (very) cheap Seiko Giugiaro reissue from Japan, specifically an SCED043:
How hard would it be in your opinion to make it look closer to the original Aliens watch?
I know the original had silver steel case and bracelet, but I prefer them in black so I wouldn't touch case and bracelet.
My goal would be more to have it look like an SCED037 reissue than to the original movie prop (or SCED035 reissue). FYI SCED037 is like this: (but almost 2x as expensive on the Bay)
So basically how hard would it be to repaint the hands orange (mn/hr), white (subdials), and yellow (chrono seconds)? And maybe replace (or repaint?) the chrono pushbuttons...
Thanks for your advice!
