Project Watch update

Finally the replacement crown arrived. So off to my watch guy for some work and testing. Am very happy with the result. I do like it, wish I could afford the real one. There is one available in Taiwan for USD 12,000. SIGH!!!!!

The new crown.

The watch with 'local' made leather strap with crocodile print.

With the new crown water resistant to 6 ATM (tested).

I might polish the top portion of the crown. We will have to see.

The lume is not great but not that bad. I was pleasantly surprised.

The basic ETA/ Unitas movement.

The next modification on the watch is to replace the blue screws as the blue finish of the screws were slightly damaged. Note the damage on the ratchet mechanism and also the transmission wheel screw.

Overall, I am happy with the watch and will become part of my daily watch rotation. Review soon.
