Tying in to my interest in watches worn in military service over the years, check out this watch band, circa maybe '78-'79, worn by a Rhodie Cessna pilot. Looks like a Zulu MI-6 band, in some sort of regimental colors. Badassery and flair all rolled into one.
Keeping with the theme of vintage military watches, have you come across this site yet?
I thought this one was particularly cool.

Picked up a used CWL Tri-Tech for an extremely good price, and am debating whether I should lume the bezel . I photoshopped what it could possibly look like with it. What do you guys think?
Maybe this is just a sign that my girlfriend has finally broken my spirit, but I'm going to be the voice of reason here. Since you got a good price, why don't you keep the extra dough you'd spend on luming the bezel and save the money? At least to me, it seems like you're negating the good deal if you throw money into the watch right away. Plus, it's already a pretty busy dial. Wear it a while and see if you still think it needs something done the road.
I'm a little alarmed that I just typed those words.
