    Good Morning,
    This is my first actual discussion post on this forum. I have been lurking for a while and it is great to see the budding community on this forum.

    So recently I posted and withdrew the watch below from the Marketplace section. I decided to keep it because I want to mod it. Now I know it is cheating to do what I want to do, but the fact is I cannot afford the actual vintage piece. So my question for this forum is - Is there a reliable resource who could swap out the hands (sub dial and seconds hand) for orange to better mimic the Dark Lord? While it will never be the real deal I think it would add some interesting pop to the dial.

    Thanks for any feedback or thoughts!

    Alex

    A personal piece of advice.
    Depreciation is already an enemy of yours; don't let devaluation join the camp.

    If you want to "mod" it, try alternative straps.

    Or if you don't care about resale, mod away :)

    The problem i found with mod it, is that, the logo tag heuer will never be heuer.

    If you don't mind that then i guess its okay to mod away. But if i were you i wouldnt do it.

    Cheers

    If you're going to paint the hands then paint the TAG out of the logo as well.... :whistling:

    Yeah, most of the feedback is exactly why I was on the fence. Even shifting to the orange hands does not remove the Tag Heuer logo so I feel like I would never be 100% satisfied.
