    BAPE EZM1: Conversion to Normalcy

    The BAPE version of the EZM1 is a unique anomaly in the Sinn world. It almost defies description, not in a good way. In case you've forgotten:


    Even a strap change can not help it out:


    But, there does exist a possibility for redemption. Unfortunately, Sinn will not lend a hand in saving its soul. But, start with a genuine Sinn replacement dial:


    What might that result in? Here is a possible look:


    Next, there is the green case to consider. The green might be bearable, but only if it was a permanent feature. As seen here, the green paint was a separately bad idea, as it just flakes off:


    Once you beadblast it, it looks pretty good, very nearly like the regular EZM1 next to it:


    With the dial and hands installed, it is essentially identical to the regular model:


    Add a genuine EZM1 bracelet, and a temporary Bund style bezel insert, and its at least presentable in public:


    Finally, secure a copper sulfate capsule:


    Next a genuine Sinn bezel insert (this one is an EZM3 countup, which I prefer):


    The last step needed before it is completely normalized is to install the OEM calendar wheel, hopefully later this week. At that point, it will be a full blooded EZM1 except for the verbiage on the caseback, which does not affect its looks or function. Its keeping excellent time, too!

    wow, now that was a lot of work, with a great end result. I still don't mind that wacky bape version, though, lol.

    Woa!

    I,ve been looking at Sinn watches with a great deal of interest after being opened up to their designs on WUS. This green thing has been the first "glitch" in the matrix. And thank you for exorcising the demons. Great results.

    You should get a WUS medal for saving that poor little watch.

    Where did you get the dial from? I own a Bape which I want to convert…The green is already off the case and the bezel is not a problem….
