A bit of red to brighten up the day

Post by SeikoJohn on Thu Sep 14 2017, 17:55

I have been searching the internet for dials and I came across this little red beauty . The design is similar to what is on my Invicta



But just look at the colour of this ...... RED Shocked Shocked



I quite like red dials especially Domecurb's Orient but not certain if I like this or not ... Maybe the red is just a little too flat and not exciting enough

It could however look ok if it was used with white hands which would stand out and also match the numbers and markers and possibly a white ceramic bezel insert , or even black hands and a black insert .

Any suggestions ? oh and I am not buying it as I do not have a donor watch to put it in Very Happy

Luckily as I said I do not have a case to put it in also they are sold out as I probably would have bought one for the hell of it .

Red dials can really make a watch pop like that Orient SD

Not sure I even have a red dial may have to check my boxes Very Happy

not these days, the cheapest skx009 is a self build, buy all the parts and it is cheaper than buying a built one but you wont get any others cheap

True , maybe cheap was the wrong word to use . Although I have been extrememly lucky with the two 7002's that I own one cost me £10 as a non runner water damaged and the other I got for a good price from Iceblue
