Wowzers. How did he swing that one. I think we may have found one of the new TWAT mascots.

Just had to say this ... after being out of town and slammed at work lately I FINALLY told the whole story of my new pickup and my acquiescence into TWAT-dom, with embedded pics and all.  Then, I accidentally closed the tab.  baldy[1].gif

 

Don't really have the energy now, but here goes:

 

My vintage (MINTY!!) Rolex Oyster.  My first Rolex and the first really nice watch I've purchased.

 

 

Unboxing

 

 

Lastly, a 'family photo' of my brother's Khaki Chrono (grad gift) and the new Rolie and my vintage Seamaster:

 

 

 

Thanks to dino, stiches, and all others for advice and help in finding "the one."  I found it and I LOVE it.

Hey guys,

 

I had a customer who told me about this forum and suggested I share my recent work with you all.

 

I own Melbourne Custom Watches, a small business based in Australia.

 

I build pilot, Marine and PAM homage style watches (primarily) with different levels of specs, from affordable with Sea-Gull movements to more premium with engraved Swiss movements etc.

 

If anyone is interested I've got a few watches currently available, check out www.melbournewatch.com for more information or to contact me.

 

Here's some pics of my recent creations:

 

1) Marine watch with custom engraved Swiss ETA6498 movement:

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) PAM homage with sandblasted steel case, custom engraved ETA6497 movement:

 

 

 

 

3) Type A pilot, sandblasted case with Sea-Gull skeleton movement:

 

 

 

 

Cheers!

 

Suj.

CONGRATULATIONS! Nothing like that awesome feeling of a hunt well accomplished!  Truly a grand acquiescence into TWAT-dom - wear that beauty well!

Nothing like being a professional photographer and a brand ambassador for Panerai.  I will ask for more "samples."

Yes, I have provided feedback to my friend about not properly photographing the subdials properly.  I will attempt to gain access to other more appropriate shots.

Glad to hear that situation will be corrected so that we will know the correct "Reference numbers."
