It's a happy day, a new watch arrived more parts for my Sumo! My "Carlo Mod" >>

And I use the phrase "Carlo Mod" in honor of our friend CarloPMWF, who has done many mods in this style. And that style is: "Some Seikos look better when they are modded using genuine Seiko parts... from other Seikos."

Yesterday, I unveiled the Sumo, after receiving a sapphire crystal and small fonts insert from Harold.

Today, the project comes together with a different dial and hands.





The lume is creamy colored, and long-lasting.



I never understood why the MM300 hand set has a polished seconds hand. I had an extra to spare, so I brushed this one using the diamond sponge. This shot shows the grain a little.



On a 20mm waffle strap from Dagaz Watch.




These hands are a work of art. The top surface is brushed, so visibility is great in all lighting conditions. But, there is also a polished bevel around the outside of the hour and minute hands. See how that hour hand picks up a little extra light on the "eclipsed" side of the dial? That polish, plus the polished indices, really helps in low-light conditions.





And, on a desert tan zulu, for those of you who like the look...
