Ive always wanted a custom, hand built watch... well Ive been saving my pennys for many moons and now it should be completed in about a month.
Being built by Chris Sappas at Wilson Watch Works in North Carolina
First the beating heart
A Decorated SOPROD modified Swiss ETA 6498
Next, a German made combat style case with Sapphire crystal and presentation back.
(delux crown not shown)
German made "Flieger" dial and hands (Swiss C1/C3 Superlume modification)
The strap is also being made by Chris, it is a distressed leather "Flieger"
(jury is still out on strap/buckle selection...)
It is not historically correct for a WWII "Flieger", but man who the "F" cares, its a work of art and true old world craftsmanship
I know... please forgive me, Im like a kid at christmas, it's just so cool...
I'll post pics when it arrives
