I've heard of and seen them. I'm told they are extremely popular with the eastern Europeans. They worry me because whilst they suggest that they take an existing watch and customise it, they could so easily use fake Rolexes and it would be very difficult to prove unless you removed the case back. They are definitely an acquired taste.

They are just another modification company that does (mostly) DLC coating, so all steel surfaces of the watch are turned to black. They do it on Rolex, AP, Patek, you name it.

Not my thing.

I really like these but would only buy if they were affiliated with Rolex.

I would never want a watch like these, but I could some people intrigued by their uniqueness.
