    Several months ago, I transformed a standard 70's Rolex with a Mickey Mouse dial. When my sister saw it, she liked it so much that she has commissioned me to assemble a Hello Kitty one for her as she is more a 'Cat' fan than a 'Rat' fan!

    Anyway, I eventually managed to find a Hello Kitty dial and an old Rolex watch! Here is the end result! I have decided to post it before I send the watch over to her! It is a little too pink for my liking but I'm sure she will love it!

      Hello Karen, yes you can, but hopefully not just because of the watch, lol.......It's George's and he had a Rolex serviceman put this together in the UK. :-)

      Sorry George - I Knew this was your post but mistyped the other one's name!

      DO you need a sister too?

      Wow! at first I was very surprised to see this, then I read it and still surprised! Looks fantastic!!! Your sister is going to love this...who wouldn't??? And Kerry does this type of transformation too? I'll have to look!
    11. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      @ Karen, glad to be your bro! :-)

      @ shareurpassion, Kerry services all his watches and clocks and has made bespoke pieces on commission! Thanks for your appreciation!

      Cat or Rat, these are amazing. I haven't worn a watch in ten years and haven't even wanted one until I saw what you could do with them.
      This is what your wrist was made for!
    15. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Thanks bobbee, bhg, Gracay & Ashlee! Much appreciated!

      George,

      This is AWESOME! Was the dial custom made for you or are they being sold in bulk?
    18. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Adam, thanks for stopping over and loving this Hello Kitty! I got the dial off a watch dealer in Germany. Not a bespoke custom made item but I have never seen another one before.
    19. crazycharacter, 5 years ago
      George,

      Thanks. Any idea if they have other characters? I have a couple Rolex watches I would like to transform. :-)
    20. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Adam, sorry, it was Italy, not Germany!
      They only had 1 single Hello Kitty dial for sale. No other dials!
      Here is the link to the store and you can email them :
      http://stores.ebay.com/lapassioneperiltemposnc32/

      Mickey & Kitty dials usually only fits Ref : 6694. Some Mickey dials will fit Ref : 1500 (Kerry's Mickey).

      If you can find other characters on Rolex dials, I'd like to know too! :-)
    21. crazycharacter, 5 years ago
      Thanks George!

      I'll get in touch with them. Maybe they can make us some custom ones!

      You will have to keep an eye out for your sister. Seiko & Citizen made some wind-up Hello Kitty watches in the 70's.

      Not as nice as the Rolex, but still collectible and hard to find.
    22. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Thanks Adam! Hello Kitty is particularly popular in Japan, I'm check the Japanese sites! Cheers!
    23. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Thanks Jewels! Much appreciated! :-)
    24. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Cheers Roy! :-)

    26. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      That's amazing! Need another sister? ;-)
    27. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Cheers Petey and Kyra! Kyra, I haven't send the bill to my sister yet, you still want to me my sister? Lol
    28. steller steller, 5 years ago
      I'd wear this
    29. geo26e geo26e, 5 years ago
      Thank you steller! I have told Kerry to get you one! :-)
