    Default Return from the Spa

    Here are a couple I got back from Chris Radek today.



    Both working immaculately. The dial is a little manky on the Snorkel, I may need to address that since the hands are so clean, kinda the whole diamond eating goat situation. The Astro is gorgeous. Found appropriate bracelets for both. A fairly satisfying project coming to fruition.

    Looks great. You should enjoy the snorkel for a while before sending it off again. There are some talented guys I have seen who do re-lumes on vintage speedmaster dials/hands. Check omegaforums for recommendations. I would just do a relume and not a redial.

    Man the patina on that Astro is to die for! You can be proud of that. Love the snorkel too.

    The idea is to just do the hands to match the lume and bezel. I don’t want to touch the dial if I can help it.
    But that Astronaut, thanks for the assist Jake. It really came together pretty well. Still need the matching case back, but it’ll all come together soon!

    The Astro is just fantastic. The bracelet brings it all together. Very happy with it and the snorkel.
