Next project...

Anyone who knows me will know that I am a sucker for watches, left handed. So when a friend showed me this photograph....

Photograph: shamelessly borrowed from the Internet

It is a Maranez Bangla, but with a twist. It is left handed. Is this possible? I know that Maranez have made (in collaboration with BWB, Bronze Watch Bros) a left handed before, but the movement in that watch is a Miyota and the watch was design from the onset as a left handed watch. 

So with a little of research, this is what I found out.

The Maranez Bangla is powered by the Seiko NH35. So can the dial be rotated? Will the dial feet holes accommodate this rotation? 

Based on the drawing above, the answer is a resounding YES. So, looks like a new project is in the making......
