At least the dial and hands are new. The case and movement are a Seiko 5 I bought a while back and didn't really like.



Ethan Mack made this happen when he posted his Seiko "Spitfire." I had been wanting something like that and seeing it all together made the urge irresistible. I scoured Jake's site (Dagaz) and ordered the parts.They came last week and I fought them together today. It has been a while since I installed hands and I'm glad Jake sends three of each hand. At one point, I had is all reassembled and noticed that the second hand was pushing the minute hand, oops. Eek! Went much better the second time.

It's all fun and I like the result.
