FORGOT TO SHOW THAT YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE COMPASS TO USE OR IF YOU WANT JUST THE WATCH

HECK I DO NOT MAKE THESE CAUSE I SELL THEM. I MAKE THEM CAUSE IT IS AWESOME

IMG_2915.JPG (146847 bytes)

WHILE IS IS BOLD HEAVY DUTY 1/8 TOP HIDE
WITH PATCHES WATCH COMPASS AND MORE
WHEN WORN IS IS TOP NOTCH

IMG_2919.JPG (149944 bytes)

I CANNOT HAVE ONE CAUSE I SELL THEM OFF MY WRIST

 

 

ROCK BUILDS A DAY/NIGHT FULL ILLUMINATED MARKERS
HAND FINISHED

SECONDS HAND IS A TURNING "PROP"

THIS IS A POCKET CONVERSION UTILIZING A 542 SET BRIDGE/LEVER STEM TYPE ELGIN POCKET

ABOVE IS THE CASE WITH SILVER LUGS
NOTE THEY ARE DEEP, THIS IS FOR A LEATHER CONVERSION STRAP

IMG_2931.JPG (135136 bytes)

OFF SET TO LEFT. TRUE DRIVERS STYLE

IMG_2932.JPG (121272 bytes)

LOTS OF LUME
ROCK FIRST HAND PAINTED CIRCLES
BLACK FOR THE WHITE BOTTOM

IMG_2936.JPG (119202 bytes)

LIKE THE ZODIAC GMT 24H4, NIGHT IS NOT LEFT BLACK RIGHT WHITE
THIS ABOUT IT! I SET 9 TO 3

DID THIS DIAL COME OUT GREAT?
I HAD TO DO THE DIAL OVER AND OVER 5 TIMES
LIKE WHEN I SLIPPED TESTING CRYSTAL AND SCARRED THE DIAL UP

IMG_2930.JPG (119631 bytes)

NOTE THE SECONDS. BECAUSE I WANTED THE DIAL SHARP AND PLAIN
PLACING A DOUBLE HAND HAND LOOKS LIKE A PROP RUNNING

 

 

 

 

BUILDING A HEAVY DUTY 1ST CLASS 150 YEAR WATCH STRAP

MIXING COLORS AND A BODING COMPOUND

IMG_2946.JPG (198750 bytes)
RIGHT OFF ROCKS PRESS

IMG_2939.JPG (198894 bytes)

THE STRAP IS MADE OF DIED GREEN LEATHER. I MEAN GREEN

IMG_2940.JPG (232429 bytes)

USING PLASTIC HAMMERS AND OTHER TOOLS

IMG_2945.JPG (194041 bytes)

AS THIS IS WORN FOR DECADES, IT WILL CHANGE COLORS

IMG_2948.JPG (195645 bytes)

THE COLOR, WHILE PERMANENT WITH GREEN LEATHER BASE, ALSO IS COVERED
WITH A MIXTURE OF NEATSFOOT AND ROCKS BLEND 

IMG_2950.JPG (168883 bytes)

THE COMPOUND USED MAKES THE LEATHER BREATH THROUGH THE PAINT.

IMG_2954.JPG (188973 bytes)

ABOVE YOU CAN SEE THE LAYERS

IMG_2955.JPG (178964 bytes)

WHEN I MOUNT A CONVERSION IT WILL BE AWESOME
THIS STRAP WILL NOT BLEED. IT IS PRETTY MUCH AS IF DYE WERE USED

IMG_2956.JPG (169390 bytes)

YES SOME COLOR ON BACK WE WANT IT TO LOOK RIGHT
AGAIN, WEARING THIS WILL SHOW HOW THE STRAP GETS BETTER WITH AGE

IMG_2959.JPG (137084 bytes)
THAT GREEN? THAT IS THE BASE DYE, NOT ONLY DIED BUT SEATED AND POLISHED

IMG_2960.JPG (172719 bytes)

YES, THE BUCKLES GOT THEIR OWN TREATMENT THESE SHOULD LOOK AGED

IMG_2962.JPG (148410 bytes)

A MILITARY PATCH SOME OTHER ADORNMENTS WILL KICK IT UP A NOTCH

IMG_2968.JPG (161682 bytes)

9 COLORS WERE USED

IMG_2973.JPG (141248 bytes)

THE FINAL TREATMENT IS SILICONE 7 AND PARKED NEXT TO A 50 WATT HALOGEN
IN THE JEWELRY CASE FOR 7 DAYS
