Hello rlouie, it's terrific that you are here !

Wow, your 4th watch?!! Amazing stuff ! Can only imagine
how cool that must be to know how to do.

Congratulations on having such talent rlouie. Holy cow !

Thinking the section Watch Modifications & Builds within General
Watch Discussions might be perfect. ..Hope you really enjoy !!!

Hi

Only done a couple of small mods myself a seiko and an Invicta.

Seiko was dial and hands

Invicta was hand swap cyclops removed and onto a nato strap.

Happy with the results but im not sure hand setting gets any less tense lol.

Welcome! What material/tools do you use to modify what's on the dial?

You'll need
case back removal tool
Hand removal tool
Magnifying glasses or loupe
Hand setting tool

Dials are usually just buy a replacement and fit.

I have most of these (not a loupe yet) but was specifically wondering about the dial itself. I saw a lot of people having new logo of their own on the dial after modding so wondering if they painted on it or had it printed
