Finally finished my bronze build!

Also included a drawing I did of what I wanted, just for fun. The main build wasn't bad, although I did change out a couple things from the first put together. Like I had a crystal with a cyclops I replaced the original crystal with, but with no AR, it made it harder to read the date, so back to the original crystal. And I changed it the GMT and seconds hands to what's here now, easier to see both. But this was the most invasive build I've done do far. Crystal and chapter ring were both done, never done either of those before. And this case came with a black bezel insert, but the drawing said I needed red and black. But turns out the insert to fit this bezel is not common at all! 38mm x 32.15mm, plus it's stepped on the back, so a flat insert wouldn't work. So the middle picture shows my solution. I took the insert I wanted, and ran a round file around the inside over and over and opened up that inner diameter to about 32.2mm, so the crystal can come out without the insert getting in the way. And then I cut and trimmed that little plastic ring from a thin sheet of PET plastic I had laying around. But it worked, I was able to glue the insert to the spacer, and then glued the spacer into the bezel, and now I have my vision strapped to my wrist! Learned a lot, and doing the fully custom insert was a challenge, but very rewarding when I finished it. Hope you like it!
