Default Black DLC Seiko SKX007 Monster Mod...

Today i received a couple of Monster dials and hands. Just when i'm unpacking this stuff i see my modded black DLC SKX007 laying on my workbench. Suddenly this great idea popped into my head! I had to make another SKX007 Monster Mod again. Here's the result:

While I like the general look, the double index chapter rings kind of bug me. I would make the outer one either plain black or perhaps silver.

Plain black might look better, i'm also thinking about this dial:

The overall look is awesome! I especially like the DLC finish on the case - a nice sheen but not too polished like in cheaper PVD watches. Where did you get the DLC done?

The double chapter rings are a tad busy IMO.

But a great overall mod. Congrats!!

I prefer the all orange look, and yes, a plain chapter ring would make it a little less busy but I still like the offset of the black and white minute markers.

Yes i've seen it! I really like these mod's! I've made about 22 of the mod's now, all monster dials in SKX007 cases. And they are all different, you can see some of them on my website here.
