Hi Adriel, sorry reviewed on a different link yesterday, love the case & package received, thanks Mark
I built a piece for myself last year with the 36mm explorer case, and the new model with the transparent back is a stunner! I bought this one to build a watch for my best man to wear in my wedding this October, and it turned out beautifully. Always a pleasure working with this company. Their fast, efficient, and conscientious. Will be back soon!
Exactly what I needed for the watch I was building for my wife. Fit and finish is fantastic.
Very happy with the great service, package of products and communication from Adriel at Lucius Atelier, still waiting for a Seiko OEM dial to arrive from another merchant, then will complete the build.
Commande d'une lunette + insert original (déjà monté) pour SKX009. Pas si facile à trouver... Ici avec un tarif très raisonnable. Livraison rapide avec Fedex. Un petit mot à la main au dos de la carte qui fait toujours plaisir ;-) Je recommande + + +
I have yet to use this case and bracelet as I'm waiting for some other parts for it but the finishing on the case and bracelet are very high quality and the fitment of the end links to the case are very good with little to no play between them.
I paired these hands with the Submariner Snowflake dial, works perfectly and the lume is a perfect match. Great work!
Lucius Atelier 36mm Explorer case (Aftermarket case) looks great in finish. Looking forward to see if the bracelet will fit the case properly. As I also bought a 39mm case, where that wasn't the case.
Explorer Watch Case - 36mm
Very nice case, all the parts fit together quite well, paired with a Lucius Atelier Snowflake Submariner dial and a Namokimods black OSM style ceramic bezel. Very happy with the quality. Thanks!
Really eye catching Dial which will reflect the light along with the Silver Pilot Hands
Beautiful well finished hands with clean white Lume.
I recieved my order quickly and am very happy with the dial, i cannot wait to finally assemble
Watch was assembled and shipped to me within one week !
Well built hands and outstanding colour for contrast.
The dial looks far better in the flesh. Can't wait to build it for the wife.
Bought this and some black nautilus hands to build a gift, and they are perfect. Everything fit nicely and it wasn't a challenge. Another good buy from Lucius Atelier!
This was the main component I used in my first build, an all-black watch. Combined with the Velvet Black Dial (No Date), Pilot Hands - BG29 - Polished Black, and a regulated NH36 movement, purchased with the intent of being able to swap out dials and hands later, if I wanted.
The case itself is very nice, and while fitting the bracelet, I would have normally expected scratches near the lugs, due to my lack of expertise with replacing bands on watches, the DLC surfacing held up VERY nicely, and I wasn't able to see any scratches.
The case was a very snug fit to the movement and ring, and while I appreciate it once the movement and spacer were inserted, it did make the process of adding them a tad tricky.
The bracelet fits exactly to the watch, with only the slightest wiggle, as I would expect from a brand new, factory-built watch. This is a great experience while wearing, but also made fitting the bracelet into the watch a very exacting feat, which was tricky. For someone new to modding, this was difficult, but not impossible, and I expect someone with more experience would probably not have this issue.
Also, the bracelet uses screws rather than pins for adding or removing links, and that feature made resizing the bracelet exceptionally easy and painless. One part of the folding clasp appears to be some material that's different than the rest of the bracelet, perhaps a very hard plastic, though you wouldn't be able to tell by looking at it, as it perfectly matches the color of the rest of the bracelet.
Even with all the struggles I personally had, I loved the experience with a carefully labeled box that contained all the parts together, individually and delicately packaged in specially cut-out compartments. The attention to detail in this packaging was absolutely amazing, showing an experienced understanding of why someone would be ordering these parts together, and far exceeded the expectations I had for how the products were going to be delivered, and I love it.
Really well made set of hands. Some time the more simple, the more you see the defects... Well this hands are flawless !
This dial is really nice, you can look at it all day long and still see some new details !
First, this case is beautiful by itself and perfectly done. Very easy to build, every part is machined well and fit together without the need for any adjustments from me.
Now, let's talk about the service. I pre-ordered the case and misread the estimated delivery date (my fault), so when the case was ready to ship, I was out of my country for a long time. I just send an email asking to keep my order till I came back and very quickly got an answer from Adriel telling there was no problem. I just send a mail when I came back (more than a month later) and the package was send the same day !
To conclude I'll say that this was perfect from start to end ! Product quality, service and quick shipping !
Superb machined holder. Simply do what it designed for.
The look of this case is amazing. Fit and finish are superb too. Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because the crown had to be worked a lot to fit perfectly. Out of the box the crown kept getting stuck in the compressed position. Stem length is crucial for proper fitment. Build shown is Lucius Atelier 40mm Seikonaut case, Namoki mods sakura navy dial, snowflake hands, and regulated NH35.
Excellent fit and finish. Built this as a kind of dress watch for a customer. 36mm V2 Explorer case, Namoki galaxy dial, Dauphine lumed hands, and NH36 regulated movement. Crown and movement fir without issues.
Excellent quality dial! I completed the build for a customer with the 36mm Explorer Case, BGW9 Explorer dial, BGW9 Mercedes hands, and a regulated NH38 movement. Everything from Lucius Atelier. Liked it so much I'm going to build one for myself.
