Just testing the waters and trying out Randall's new forum.

Here's a few that Jack did for me. 100% original 6105's & 6309's.

I love these watches and I for sure wouldn't ever let loose of them.

The 6105, in my opinion, is the most eye catching and comfortable diver made.

I'm no photographer, but believe me, these are perfect examples.

When I say 100% original, I mean all original parts. One of the 6105's

was relumed, and both cases were cleaned up. I was very fortunate to have

perfect dials, hands, inserts, cases and casebacks with no deep scratches.

I did upgrade the crystals to sapphire, but I have original minerals also.

Of course they were serviced and new gaskets installed.

In this picture I have an 8110 and a 8119. The 6309's have not been relumed.

Both the 7040 and 7049 in this picture were serviced and touched up by Jack.

Both these 6309's are perfect. To see four perfect factory bezel inserts

in one picture is kinda rare, unless you're Mike Mounce.

Here's the pics...

Here's a 6105 getting to go for a drive...

Here's a project I never completed.
I sent it to Shane, but it just kinda fizzled out.
I still want to create a "special" leather strap for a 6105.

One of my 6309's up close...

I'm pretty much a purist, but I must confess, I like this mod.
This watch had aftermarket parts when I bought it. The hands have
since been changed to more closely resemble a Doxa. I'll post a pic soon.
Funny story, I own a brand new Doxa that has never been worn or sized.
I'm not as attracted to it as I am this mod. Go figure.
This watch was rebuilt from the ground up by IWW.
I've also installed a new strap since this pic.

New hands...

I'm not against modding a newer watch at all.
I hope it's okay to show a little knife content.
I'm sure it is, I think Randall collects bayonets...

Photobucket

Here's one of my newer aquisitions.
I hope to someday find a NOS insert.
Yeah right...

Photobucket

Although I did find this NOS 6105 complete bezel a few years back.
It can happen...

And for those that appreciate anything vintage.
How about my 1975 Triumph Trident T-160.
Believe it or not, this was a gift from a friend...

Alright then, I'm sure you've had enough.
Thanks for looking.
