Do I leave the blue bezel insert on or do I change back to a black one ?? What do you think I should do

IMHHO the blue is a clash with the black, but then i like black watches Very Happy
its a really nice dial and IMO one of the best they make

Nice outcome, can I ask a couple of questions, is it just the angle of the photos or doesn't the date window sit equally between the 4 & 5, also did you ever think about a black with white date ?
Thanks

I am finally finished with the Invicta as I am really happy with the outcome . I damaged the movement last time I tinkered with this watch and broke the tube on the seconhand and it stuck on the pinion . Anyway I had some time to myself today so thought I would give it a try see if I could remove it and hey presto I succeeded . I bought some Seiko urchin hands from Cousins and on they went tonight I was not sure if they would give the look I was intending for but I will say I am extremely happy with the outcome . here we have it the Spork/sinn/urchin/Invicta

That's very smart. and well done managing to remove the collar of the second hand from the pinion. That must have taken steady hands as the pinion is so fragile.
