Hey Ron, that looks great Bro! I've got the all black one like yours, but not the two tone ss/black. So I guess mine stays the way it is. If I did have both though, I would definately take a cue from you and do the same! Nice job!

I do not like the Bolt at all, BUT like what I did with my SAN III and added the different bracelet - I think what you did looks far better then the original. Great job!

Now how did you do what you did. Can you explain a little what you did please? What did you use for paint, etc.

Thanks!

TV I blew Both bracelets apart and just pulled the Polished raised link from the two tone version and swapped it with the Black IP version and re assembled the bracelets. I wish I had another chrome cable, and then I would be set!

I would have to go inside the watch and blow it completely apart. I would have to have the cable and the cable supports, because they come as an assembly!

Definitely braver than me.......my few attempts at minor cleaning and/or repairs inside watches has not gone well.
I bet you could go to Lowe's and find some cable roughly the same size??

The cable is fused together to make it one piece, so that wouldnt work. I wonder if I can buy the polished and or Chrome cable and stand-offs from Invicta? It would look good with that on there!

I like it - maybe you should give the suggestion to Invicta - they might run with it. Of course you should get a free watch for your idea !!
