Some things should never be done. Good out of the box thinking though.

Interesting notion, and while I'm with the other two, it does make me wonder if you could TST a 7A28-7049 to get a similar look? Then it'd still be pure Seiko.

Nice idea. However maybe the insert being changed to something else would be an improvement?

That's awesome. However, if I had a speedy I would keep it as a speedy. But there again I'm not wealthy enough to bugger about with expensive watches!

All I can say is: It's not a Seiko. A well thought out Mod of sorts but why?

That's what you get for staying up late and Dreaming of "The Land of Seiko's".........

BTW, I think you should spend your time more wisely pondering Resist verses Proof..........

Unfortunately not clever

The crown is one of my *Big* TST crowns.

Ya know, I was almost gonna say that looks like one of those watches where the dial is inside a fluid? Can't remember what they're called.

Last time I trust what John says!

I never look at an arnie as a chrono/tachy , I am in the camp that a chrono has two pushers, As in a 6139/8 Speedy, bullhead etc... Just me...
