Very nice as always Bruce.
This is the 007 mod I'd like, but the prices of 007's makes it very hard to offer up a donor

Are the dial and hands bought that way ie made to look old ? I have read about people soaking them in tea or coffee but never knew if that actually works

there are brand new cases available, which is a cheaper option than breaking a whole watch Wink

tea is the easiest option as there is more control over the shade you may want, it works really well and lasts too
EDIT: the lume shouldnt be affected either
