Haha, I dunno about that, it was quite stressful but it knew if I cocked it up I could just buy another one, wouldn't want to risk it for someone else's watch :P

 

Has been fun though, very tempted to get a gold one and do it again!!

Thats looks a lot better! I love the rose gold one, which I have, but it is not an easy watch to read the time on. Interested to know when you get it back together how it looks then... Although the SS version is stock a bit better at this then my RG.

 

Would love to see the end result, might me tempted to have a go with with my RG then...

 

Great job mate :)

Was tricky to put back together and I did slightly scratch the paint around the base of the hour hand, thankfully it's mostly covered by the minute hand so hardly even notices, but it's safe to say I'm very pleased with the result!!!

In sunlight the colours really pop, it's stunning...

Blimey, what an improvement! Now it has your very own personal touch! Enjoy your beauty!

 

Also, this saved you probably a 3 year wait by Kenny for this work... All in one day.

Just a suggestion, maybe put a side to side pic of the old vs. new so we can be even more inspired..

 

Excellent suggestion, here's a "before and after"...

Unbelievable ! The whole opperation you have going on there wouldn't be out of place in a Willy Wonka factory, I dont have the steady hands or patience to even attempt something like that, but bravo! :notworthy:

By any chance, do you have some artistic school background?

There is some talent in the application of the paint without it becoming messy or full of waves done due to touching the paint while it is drying!
