Just wanted to share a couple pieces that I'm really proud of,, they're the first 2, completely finished 3646 project I've been working on for about the last 5-6 yrs,,, yes, YEARS!,,, LOLOLOL,,, I JUST got the custom made Cali dials,, and heat-blued steel hands to me the other day,, The hands are made to the original OEM specs,,, Both watches have vintage Hamilton movements in them.. the Cali has a 921, (21 jewel),, and the 12,3,6,9 dialed watch has a 917, (17 jewels.. The 12,3,6,9 dialed version also has a genuine Rolex Submariner crown, and case tube,, Both straps are nearly brand new,, with the Cali dial being about a week old, and the 12,3,6,9 dialed version being mere hours old,, I used vintage leather on both of them, and then patina'd them in all the, "right" places,,, lolol,,,, Both buckles are also nickle plated brass as the originals were,,, Enjoy,, Kevin
