    De- Chromejob

    I spent an hour or two this morning, trying various hand sets. All were loose fitted. Seiko Aviator. Seiko Aviator with Red Seconds. Seiko Plongeur. Favinov Paddle. The Favinov set are standard Vostok fitment. Any of the others will have to be swaged down ( hour hand ) to fit. I do have a gold paddle set on the way from favinov. Initial thoughts are that the Aviator minutes is too long, although I do like the colour combination with the case. The Favinov paddles look good in low light. All good fun, I must say. Steve.

    Should you decide to try it, I would suggest that the crystal is removed before the acid bath, as it can be weakened/damaged. Ask me how I know that! Steve.

    Sorry, couldn't resist. A work in progress on my Komandirskie. Off with the chrome plating. Plan "A" is this dial/hand combo: Both are for a Seiko. The dial will be fitted with pads, and I will attempt to re-size the Hour hand. Minute hand is the correct size. There is no way my old eyes will let me re-size the Seconds hand, so I will fit a replacement Vostok jobby. If my re-sizing skills are as I suspect, the look my be a little different. Progress reports ( good, bad, or indifferent, will follow. Steve

    This day in history.

    Very interesting, WRENCH. Thank you. I, wrongly, assumed that it was destroyed in the Reformation. I have driven past the ruins, many, many times. Next visit to Elgin, I'll stop and have a look around. Steve.
  9. We have a very pleasant sunny morning, up here in NE Scotland. With the sun, flowers are blooming, so a bright strap is called for, I feel. Steve.

    Fellow retirees will know that every day is a weekend. So, although it's Friday, storm Hector has blown through, and the sun is shining. Steve.

    The new seconds has improved it, IMO. Really nice job. Steve.
