                  You don’t need any comparisons This is one of the “must have” mods and Tom is one of the best in the business. The ootb Noob looks nothing like gen in the sandblasted areas of the insert. That’s where this platinum paint mod helps. If you haven’t, just get it done. This will take your YM to the next level (given the bezel is such an important personality of this model).

                  Here is a pic of mine.

                        About 3 to 4 weeks back. Mail took a bit longer, but I got it finally.

                          interesting, looks a bit lighter than the one he made for me 6 weeks ago (but could be the light as well)

                          do you know if he managed to change back his electrolyte material? he told me that the one he used initially cannot be sourced any longer, therefore the new one makes the bezel look more stealth/darker in certain lightings..

                            As you know - The sandblasted platinum paint shine/color is very dependent and sensitive to lighting conditions. Depending on light, it goes from a dark shade (almost seems like nothing is present) to very sand sparkle like shine in bright light. I wouldn't worry too much about the fact that his new electrolyte is a shade darker. Also keep in mind, gen platinum puts on a patina with time and metal does look a bit darker.

                              yes I know, it’s not a problem at all, I actually prefer it being a bit darker as it separates case and bezel a bit better..
                              on the picture the bezel just looked that tad brighter than I’ve seen mine so far, so I was wondering if he managed to source his old electrolyte again

                                Personally, I like it darker too just like the gen. The shade Tom used on mine is a bit too light.
