I have always liked these but just never got around to doing one until now. Some of you may remember the Duracoat experiment from a while back, well it did not work out the way I hoped so off the case went to Mr Murphy's Horological Emporium for a bead blast and some case back work.Once the case came back from the spa I started with 800 grit paper and worked up to 2500 finally finishing off with a Dremel & jewelers rouge. Re-assemble with a few parts from 10 watches & Yobokies & Murphy Manufacturing add in new gaskets from crystal to caseback & VIOLA!!!
