Don't think I could ever get myself to do that (mainly because I actually like the "bling" of the PCLs against the platinum bezel) but I have to give it up for having the balls to do it. Not to mention it's pretty easily reversible.

That looks great, no doubt about it. The TRF folks would go crazy especially the ones who worry about taking their watch in the water, heck they will want to burn you at a stake for being a heretic.

It was posted on TRF. The response was about 80% in favor when I looked.

Here's a clasp shot. Not a macro, but at least it's a picture. Additionally also check the consistency of the reflection in the brushed case across the width of the case in the second pic, and you can see what a good job they did.

Spectacular is about the only word to describe that watch. Are you going to post it over at TRF? :shrug: I would... :salute: She looks great Matt.

Having said that I never really cared for the blue dial Yachtmaster. I love the platinum dial one though.

I find my old eyes are needing the cyclops more and more, but this looks great. They did an excellent job with the brushing. Good move, Matt.
