    New Arrival - Something Very Different!

    Put this one in the new arrival thread, but thought that it deserved it's very own thread.

    This won't be to everyone's taste, but I love it


    Omega Speedmaster MKII DLC cal.861







    Did a trade for this one and thought it looks so funky I just couldn't resist.

    The purists are probably going to be sharpening their pitchforks as we speak, but this isn't the usual badly done DLC, it has been done very well, as my crappy pictures just cannot convey.

    The original graining can still be seen and the tops of the sides are polished DLC and look perfect.


    This was not a mod that I had done, but bought it like it and from the receipt I have for the work carried out, it was eye-wateringly expensive!

    Very nice indeed, I've only had one coated watch and never wore it as worried about scratching it

    The purists can GTF in my view, that's amazing. Mark 2s are funky watches at the best of times, this one has the funk turned up to 11, and I like it!

    From the pics it looks like it could have been OEM - but they are too busy with the ceramic cases to be doing DLC
    It's just a matter of time...

    Looks amazing! Look forward to seeing it.

    B******s to the Speedmaster fundamentalists - wear your reduced's, alternate versions or modded ones with pride!

    It looks superb!

    Yellow on black is a literally brilliant combination, and the element of familiarity only adds to the attraction. I think it is fabulous.

    Great stuff. Mods aren't really my thing, but the yellow is very nice indeed.

    Wow. Love that. A shop in town had a Mk11 DLC with the orange racing dial, amazing look to it.

    Wow, didn't expect quite the positive response.

    Haven't taken it off since receiving it, so that tells me it (might be!) a keeper
