I put up a thread in the dive watch forum a while ago about my modifying my near new BN177-05E.
Well, even after playing with it I've decided to sell the watch. So here it is.
The base 177 is DLC coated, has 300m water resistance with an eco-drive movement and mineral crystal.
My modifications are:Have sanded down the bezel itself to 600 grit and polished, leaving it with a slightly satin finish.Have added blue enamel to the hex-bolts on the bezel.Have added blue enamel dots on the dial, at 12, 3, 6 and 9.Have re-lumed the hands in C3 X1 lume including fully luming the second hand - so it all glows slightly.I figure the raised bezel will adequately protect the crystal, so haven't changed that.Have filled the two (empty) ornamental screw holes on the case with yellow acrylic and sealed with ultra-clear epoxy.
The thread about it in the F74 forum:https://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/my...o-4747517.html
Crystal is still perfect, some slight marks on the bezel at the 10 marking.
Price includes trackable shipping anywhere in the world.
