Take a very close look at this dial. This is not painted but actually hand carved out of a solid piece of agate! That took several months to complete. Then we took the stainless steel case and told the engraver to go crazy! Most hand engravers won't even work on stainless steel as the material is too hard. Take a close look at the case, that is all done by hand! This also took several months. Last but not least, we couldn't just put any old strap on there. We had a custom alligator strap made in a rich, dark honey brown color with contrasting blue stitching. Even the backside of the strap is in crocodile. A very special one of a kind piece that took a lot of work by some very talented people!
