That’s a nice starting point. If you plan to mod it...
Dial is the most common thing .. perhaps a patina or new dial when if you get bored ... making a new bezel would be fun, cool... but the key imo is having a vision (I like to do photoshop mock ups) and going for it.
Here is a mock up of another project I’m working on.
That's a great idea you are having in mind, the deep blue dial and the aged lume make it really pop. Love the lugs as well, they have this certain 70ies appeal to me. I like the Glycine Airman in general, but I was never a big fan of their cluttered dials. That's why I think your idea is so great.
My plan is to reshape the lugs (they are too round and haphazardly boring), add patina and grime to the case, see if I can find a fitting plexi for it, and relume the dial. Also, gold or blued hands, and age those as well. And a raw, aged and riveted strap.
Thanks for the inspiration!
