Hello after a long break and a very happy new year to all!
I have been busy with a number of things over the past few months but I shall share the most exciting bit first.
Here you see No.2-00, my next model. No.2 is based on the Swiss ETA-6498 (No.1 is based on the Russian Molnija-3603). The case diameter is just a shade over 41mm. The gold plating is flawless. I have also revised the design of the hands. These are more visible & they contrast very well with the frost finish on the plates. Overall I am extremely pleased with the results :-)
