Aftermarket customisation has been around for some years now. Collectors and enthusiasts are no longer satisfied with a ‘normal’ Daytona, or a ‘normal’ 5513. It needs to be covered in diamonds or covered in PVD collecting so they can stand out from the crowd.

Some very clever people, not limited to the three I am going to talk about in this article, have realised this, and have decided to make businesses out of taking run of the mill watches and offering them in different trousers to the manufacturer.

As you will see with the below examples, there are people who do this very well, and other people who should have their watch club membership revoked and should only be allowed to wear Daniel Wellingtons for the rest of their lives as punishment for the utter butchery that they try to sell to people. Yes, I know that all of this is subjective and everyone is entitled to their opinion, it is just that in some instances people are wrong about their opinion.
