I posted this in the Mod forum thread where I discussed doing this before.

I am also posting here because I think many do not visit the mod forum.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Dave for the advice on this, and to Dre for inspiration that I could do it too!

This is a Superdome Sapphire Kit form 10watches and their triple bezel in brushed, black chapter ring.

I am thrilled with the transformation. This was really an old beater, now it looks like a brand new and unique watch!
