Today I had a couple of Speedway XL bracelets swapped. I love doing this kind of thing with my watches. They always end up looking better then original. Unfortunately I couldn't do this one myself, had to take it to my jeweler.

I started out with these two watches.

After the swap I ended up with these.

My next MOD will be to my Meteorite XL Dial.

Thanks guys. This is a project I would usually work on but I didn't have the right size allen key to take the bracelets off. I took it to my jeweler and left it to him. He first tried to do it without changing from the lugs and found that the bracelets were not compatible due to different sleeve sizes. He then removed the bracelets from the lugs, which is what I would have done to begin with, and found that was the way to go.

I am very happy with the improvement! :c Unfortunately the next MOD I want to do calls for taking the watch apart so that will have to go to the jeweler also. :(
