An impressive mix of watches to have collected in just over a year.

I like them all with the Poljot red 12 and the Seiko Squiggle my favourites. Will be interesting to see the sotc in another years time. Very Happy

That's a nice collection.

Over and above the ones I liked previously I also really like the white dial Seiko, which I didn't see in your earlier pictures, with the green sweep second hand. Very Happy

It will be interesting to see how your collection evolves in 2017.

Thanks, it's quite a striking watch as it is. When "modding" can the bezel be changed as well as the dial and hands? I'm presuming it's all reversible if there is a change of mind. Very Happy

Dial and hands can be changed but when it comes to the bezel yes it can be changed but I believe they are hard to get hold of . I plan on removing the existing nail varnish and repaint it with a different colour .

I thought the dial was replaced and hadn't realised the dial could be painted. Sounds like a very steady hand would be needed. Will look forward to seeing the results. Very Happy
