Jumped with the bronzo
Made the jump. Crazy we're on part 33. Heebs posted the designs for the Nereus watches Santiago that I am working on. Going to bring that to part 33 too. I will post more images soon. Hope you guys like 40mm x 48mm cases, with drilled lugs, and chamfers :)

Made the jump! Non compliant sub homage, but compliant as HMM. I had to play crazy catch up as I didn't get online much last week.
So this is a new parts watch I put together this past weekend. I think it turned out well. It's an Alpha case and dial, 2824 clone, blue painted hands from China somewhere, and a bracelet from ebay.
Funny story, I was on the fence about using either black "date-just" style hands, or the blue ones, so I ordered both. The black ones came in first, so I got impatient and began assembling the watch. Everything goes great until I get to the seconds hand, and I somehow launch it off the bench to who-knows-where. After an hour of looking I couldn't find it so I figure I had offered it up to the watch gods and I shoudln't expect to see it again. I put the watch away and decided to wait for the blue hands to show up.
The blue hands show up last week, and I finally get a chance to get back to assembly this weekend, I take off the black date-just hands, put the blue hands on, and I think I like where it's going. While installing the movement into the case, one of the clamp screws get launched... and if you've ever had this happen you know exactly where I'm going. While looking for the screw I find the black date-just seconds hand. LOL.
I decided to stay the course with the blue however, and that's where we are today. Sorry for the WOT!
