    Default 6154 bronze build

    My 6154 build
    Athaya bronze 6154 case and crown
    Bigwaved dial
    River hands
    Molnija movement with Rolex decoration
    Gunny strap

    I went all out on this one with only the best parts. I’m really happy how it turned out.

    I aged the bronze case with a mixture of liver of sulfur, a boiled egg, and vinegar. With watch case above the mixture for about a hour. The vapor took the shine off, I then put the case in the liquid for about a minute. Cleaned up with soap and water and then for the next 3 days I would dip the case in salt water several times a day and let it dry. I gently polished the edges to get a little more contrast.

    Here’s the pictures...
