You can see all the specs, info, and assembly pics about this watch in the build thread here - http://www.watchfreeks.com/view_topi...4&forum_id=107

The watch arrived today and I am blown away. It is truly a stunning watch, and my first pilot watch. What really stands out is how large the watch seems with no dial like the rest of my dive-style watches. But the custom dial really fills the space and adds just the right amount of color and coolness (to me). The Lum is really off the charts on the overlum'd dial and hands.

This is a watch I will have for the rest of my life and be one of my most cherished watches in my collection. Thank you again to Rick (CurrentTime) for all his hard work, BJ from BJStraps for the great leather strap and MK from Helenarou for the sweet dial.

Here are 2 video I took quickly. sorry about the glare at times. Pictures to follow tonight or tomorrow.

In video 1, I counted 863 freckles and one B.A. pilot watch.

In video 2 I saw one B.A. Pilot watch.

James enjoy and pass it down to your son when the time comes.

Rick you be the man, that is a thing of beauty.

Glad you both made it happen with the assistance of BJ.

Can't say it any better than it has already been said. That is one of the nicest pilot watches I've seen in a long time.

Congrats are due to the owner and builder.

That really turned out well!!!

I like the dial design with the contrasting colors.

I might just have to ring Rick up myself.



Enjoy that one. I know I would.
