Titoni Cosmo King: The Spirit of Rocky Balboa

Initially going to name this post "Kiss Me Under the Thousand Stars", but after watching Rocky Balboa on the satellite TV, I decided to name it "The Spirit of Rocky Balboa".

This watch was in very bad shaped. Kind of getting conned by eBay Hong Kong seller. The case and the bezel were broken. The crown was aftermarket.... So practically only the movement, the dial and the bracelet can be salvaged. This watch has suffered one hell of a beating. Read Here!

You see I refused to let this watch goes. I depleted every mean to restore it. Failed miserably several times and wasted couples of hard earned Benjamin. With the undying spirit of Rocky Balboa, finally it is presentable again. 

Have to give thanks to TaoBao. I managed to get an aftermarket Titoni case and rim from TaoBao. You can source virtually anything from the internet if you know what you are looking for, where you are looking for and some sheer lucks as well.......

Well surfing at TaoBao, you see replacement cases for basically all the famous brands..... Audemars Piguet, Patek Philipe, Rolex, Tudor, Panerai etc etc... The sky, the limit.... Not a bad place for those who loves to modifying their watches or just simply starting a project watch. 

Photos speak a thousand words. Just a footnote, the bracelet is original Titoni. Please don't expect the replacement case to be anywhere near the original but it is a good bargain.......
