Another modified C600

Post by Clach77 » Tue Jul 23, 2019 5:31 pm

A few months ago the following watch was returned to me with a new look.

Today this one arrived. :) I’ve had the numbers picked out in black. The bracelet is the Trident bracelet that has been bead blasted to match the case. Once again, I’m very pleased with the look and very happy with the work of MCWW.

I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

Hmm, I’m not sure about bronze.

You are right Ferg - it does look totally different. I like it. :D

They both look great Alex, but the black bezel numbers make the blue the winner for me.

I’d agree with that. Much as I like the yellow watch, the black numbers do work.

Great work Alex. :clap:

I think having the numbers on the bezel picked out in black makes all the difference; would work well on your yellow dial one too. :thumbup:

Time for me to reassess whether to do anything with my two tatty IPKs (yellow and green). :wink:

You are right about the numbers, but it I’ll leave the yellow as it is. I’ll be interested to hear what happens to your C600s.....

If it wasn’t for this forum, I’d never have known that such mods and refurbishments were possible. The examples shown here look outstanding :thumbup:

I agree also that the blacked out bezel numbers give the watch a fantastically striking appearance.
