6498 Custom Unitas Watch for a 20th Anniversary

A telented jeweler from Northern Germany custom made a solid 18K gold dial with red rubies. To make it easy for him, I hand-made and exact pattern from a brass dial. The dial was over a millimeter thick, but I still had to modify the movement by drilling holes where the pointy ends of the large rubies came out the back side of the dial. I first tried black Louis the 14th hands and then decided on the rose-gold tear-drop shaped hands. The black dura-coated stainless case is 41 mm with 1 mm sapphire crystals cemented in place. The red stingray custom band was lovingly hand-made by a company I use for my custom-made watches.
