1 more angle, the forum only lets you post 3 at a time

sample NOS case, so should be right. The brushing is quite nice.

Update 18/03/15

i wanted to do a real black finish for the screen so it had almost non refections ...so i tried 2 weeks to get the right substance between the glass and the black backplate.

I got it good and got the glass and everything on the watch and then it happend..i just wanted to push the backplate with module a little deeper and @#$$%%^^&&** damn glass broke down..all
my work for nothing. By now i had to take a step back and let it rest or i would kill someone :-D

Have a look..the dark parts still have the substance between the glass and the metal backplate.

left picture is normal view with glass and blackplate/ the very dark parts of the right picture of the watch is still with some substance left between the glass and backplate

And this is what i wanted M:)W:)M
