Default SKX171 still made?

I just received 2 New SKX171 from Monsterwatches Serial 670080 and 680061 so 2016 July and August. Are these the last batches or are they still being made?

I was hoping someone knew the answer as well.

I would guess not. chronograph.com is a pretty good source for Seiko watches. They list several parts for the SkX171, but not a complete watch.

I just ordered a new SKX171 bezel for a project and it is on the way.

Thinking of doing some pretty classic PMMM mods to these two (coin edge, MM hands), maybe with a movement upgrade.

I'm getting ready to do a Poorman mod to a new SKX007 case using that bezel and an NE15 movement. Plus SBDC001 dial and hands.

Mine will be a true Poorman's version because that is my last name.

Good choice of dial with the NE15 i.e. date only, so you won't have to worry about swapping the hour wheel.
I'd like to see that when it's finished. Where are you sourcing the OEM dial and hands (always looking to get good OEM seiko parts for not too much £ )

Most of the stuff I get from members on the site. Did a WTB for the dial/hands and got the chapter ring from the same seller.

When the watch is done it will be brand new. The SKX007 case is NOS. I'll have a bunch in it but to me it will be worth it.
