In the world of MOD watches we respect anyone with the time, skill and patience to create their own watch. It is a job made easier now thanks to the plethora of parts available online, plus You Tube videos showing you how to assemble the movement, bezel, crown and stem, strap, crystal etc. But if you aren’t confident or just don’t have 500-600 quid to … Continue reading MOD Watches: CS Blackout is A Cool Customer
