Having a dress watch build well underway with Project Kanagawa I opted to build myself something similar. The build will revolve around the dial, for which I've opted a limited edition "Stardust" no-date from Lucius Atelier. As a 1/50 item, the build will have the dial as the focal point. To add a little flair I've opted for dauphine hands with a blued second hand, and a matching domed sapphire crystal with blue AR.
The bare bones of this build: - Bare case from a Seiko 5 SNK - NH36 movement - Stardust dial from Lucius Atelier - Dauphine hands (with a blued second hand) - Flat mineral crystal
Case from a basic Seiko 5 SNKK87, perfect for this purpose.
Hands a-la Grand Seiko
After receiving these parts, I undertook the build by assembling the movement, dial & dauphine handset. I then installed the new movement into the watch case.
The Finished Project
After installing the dial and handset & testing the movement, I installed it in the case. Following, I sourced a Milanese bracelet perfect for the purposes of this watch. This adds a little flair without taking away from the focal point of this timepiece; the incredible limited edition dial by Lucius Atelier.
