the generic dial and snowflake hands finally landed so I installed them on a COSC eta 2824 and dropped it into the Koboldian-Kazi case....hands and dial are C-3 superluminova and the case like the dial is completely generic....no writing anywhere....pictured on a blasted Benarus mesh...patrick.gif

TY Guys but I tired of the snowflake hands and dial so I switched to a Marcasite dial with Mercedes hands...this dial is like a mirror and goes from an ebony black to a light mirrored gray...I only wished it didn't have a date window for that complete generic look...I may just switch the date wheel to black...or switch to a Meteorite dial I picked up...what do you think?...I'll get some more pics up in the sunlight on a black rubber dive strap.cat28.gif

Both versions are PERFECTONESS, OscarThumbsup3.gif. But personally, I am veering towards the snowflake set. Somehow that bezel really does it. my love.gifVery clean and really intimidating. Enjoy it in good health.

Very cool Oscar!!!   cool.gif

Both versions look great, but I think I agree with the consensus here...the marcasite dial/mercedes hands combo sort of has an "art-deco" kind of feel to it (which is not necessarily a bad thing)...the generic dial with the snowflake hands is my preference though.

Such a cool custom mod!!!thumbsup.gif

Looks great both ways; but I think heavier hands work a bit better.

I switched the dial to a meteorite dial, applied markers and Mercedes hands with C-3 superluminova and eta 2824 and I believe this is how the Kazibold mod will remain for the time being...at least until another dial/hands that suits me better comes along...bamby.gif
