Default Franck Muller dial on Abalone

Haven't showed to many of my watch blanks for awhile, so I figured I'd show my last one I just made.

Franck Muller dial on abalone tubed for the Jr series.
I know that top gear appears to be to high, but it was just the way I was holding it when I took the picture.

Hope ya like it

Very beautiful blank set !!!


Not sure that I like watch parts on abalone, however .... just my feedback FWIW !
... too much "high class" at once, IMHO.

I don't put as many parts on these as I do my fiber watch blanks.
I know less is more...lol

Beautiful, love the colors. What adhesive do you use to attach the parts?

Awesome blank there. I am glad you are using abalone as the background. I think you may be the first to do . And that dial is very cool. I am messaging you about one for a Mistral.

Looks great Harry! Love the brass colored gears on the abalone. I did one last year for my MPG contest pen with a mother of pearl watch face. I wasn’t sure how a regular face would look with the color character in the abalone but you pulled it off very nicely. Thanks for sharing! And keep up the great work!
