Looking for opinions (and maybe a little market pressure) on the idea of a modern rendition of the Milsub.

I was thinking basically a model no: 2007.5.2.KLE (or 2007.5.2.KLS), no cyclops, with drilled lugs, a Milsub bezel (maybe ceramic), keep the awesome bracelet, but possibly throw in an OD Zulu or NATO band for good measure.

###### makes one although its 42mm. Dan of OWC in Australia has a nice offering although not swiss made and only in limited runs.

I modded one for myself a few years ago with a Yao dial.

Could look good with the hands of the new model N3 as well...

The sword hands from the latest Nettuno 3 are close to the original and are therefore good to go. I also like the dial, even though its a deviation from the original. I could take or leave the "vintage" lume. Really all that Marcello C would have to do is take a model # 2007.5., ditch the cyclops, drill the lugs, and add the (ceramic) Milsub bezel ring.

Here's the original 5517 and a few fine modern examples.

on my favorite watch, my modded N3. You can tell by the bezel insert I wear this baby ALOT!
