A watch like this would never become my choice but I congratulate you with your effords. I certainly don’t have the skills (or the tools) to pull this off. The California dial must be a nod to the other purveyor of large watches, Panerai Have you tested it for water resistance? Because that would be my primary concern.

OP,

Wow! ..Big boy that's for sure.
Kudos on your ability and effort. I hope testing goes well...I would think this piece would survive a plunge into the Mariana Trench!

Bravo to you for taking the leap! Looks like it could survive anything you could possibly throw at it! It isn't necessarily a piece I would be in the market for, but I love it.

A+++!!!

Maybe a smaller cased version the look is interesting. If you made that yourself your machining skills are outstanding.

I've figured out the perfect market branding for the watch.

Nice... I like them. Not sure if I like the Plexiglas though.

I could bond with it!!!
After all, I used to buy Invicter biggies like Russkie Divers, Cordubas the
gamut. I like the crown position for Like 1.
