Finally, a few scans of my custom RGM 300
Well, I've had this watch for close to 1 year now and I finally managed, through the help of a friend who knows his way around a camera, to grab a few decent scans of this one.
Was quite a ride working with Rich on this timepiece. Ended up discarding the first dial we created, as I decided I did not like what I chose (not RGM's fault in the least ... they created exactly what I requested). 2nd dial-a-round was perfect though.
Ended up going custom on the bezel insert, caseback engraving, crown signature, dial, seconds hand and for good measure went with an Omega 1120 Caliber.
In fact, here's the Omega 1120 before RGM had at it:
And here are a few scans of the timepiece itself:
Here's the movement after Rich decided to throw in a custom gold rotor - a wonderful touch and entirely unexpected:
This has become my weekend watch. I wear it at least once per week, and often more than that. Sturdy as a tank.
As for the MOP dial, I love it under most lighting conditions. The color changes ever so slightly depending on light, angles, etc. Every now and then it gives off a shot of bling which I don't love, but by and large I'm mesmerized by the dial. I love the look of the black lume as well, although it certainly does not glow as brightly as standard lume.
Well, there you have it.
Thanks to Rich and the RGM team for a wonderful experience and timepiece.
