Custom Pocket Watch

Not really a Conversion, but a customization. It started out with a Unitas 6498 movement, but I used that in another project I built, so I had the case, and some extra parts from storage. I built a Marine style Pocket watch in the past with Unitas 6497 and a case just like this one but in Silver. So I decided to build another Custom pocket watch, this one with an Asian 6497 style movement. I like my watches with no logos, and I especially don't like to see the Marina Militaire Logo, so I re-painted the dial. You can see the original markings in the first picture before I painted the dial. I painted over it, and relumed the hands also. The first dial I had would glow brightly initially, but after a few minutes, the dial and hands would fade and you couldn't see them. Glows very brightly now. I've been enjoying using it instead of wearing a watch lately (who woulda thought). Can't wait to set it by my bedside tonight.
