    LOL. So it's pretty much an [MENTION=12021]idvsego[/MENTION] creation then. Buddy, you might be able to start a nice side business there if the urge ever strikes.

      I have built a couple and sold them. Price starts to creep up on some of them though. If I sold this it would have to be for like $200. That's not bad for what it is but there is a lot of competition around $200. It has to be exactly what that person wants. I have done a couple for people though. Usually just charge parts plus a little for my time. They have gone for $200-300 so far. I could do some cheaper with lesser parts but I like a certain amount of detail that usually calls for something specific. I tried 5 diffethand sets on that one before I found what I wanted.

      But for me, I just enjoy it. It's my "stress ball" activity. Here are some more I have done

        I like that first Invicta watch. The changes are make it unique enough so that it doesn't seem like a straight up homage to the Explorer II.

        And I hear ya on the stress ball bit. We all need some kind of creative outlet to just relax. Nicely done.

                    I was looking at the Marshall the other day. Very nice.

                    Here's a new used acquisition for me - Tangramatic Bauhaus 39a. A micro brand automatic watch from down under.

                          Don't see many marine masters around these parts. Nice watch.

                            Thanks! I am pretty deep into watches, have been for a few years now.

                            This is actually a loaner from a friend too see if I like it, thinking about buying one for myself. It's pretty amazing.

                              I have heard good things. Put of my comfort zone price wise though. Have been considering a sumo or samurai for a while though.

                                I've heard good things about those! The MM300 is worth the price (used) IMO, but pricey for a "tool watch". I'm sure the sumo at $300-400 is worth it as well. If you haven't already check out the turtle, SRP777 etc, those are killer for $300
