oyster style SKX031
Not the most popular line of Seiko, its the Ref. No. 7S26 - 0040 SKX031 10BAR DIVER's gets the fair amount of attention.. or should i say touch up? :lol:
Since i get it as a used watch, the overall midcase had to be touched up. Start by smoothing all the scratch and bruises, resharpen the chamfer/ bevel edge, repolish to bring back the shine and give it a fine brushing on the left and right side.
Then custom DIY the insert bakelite style, 2 tone lume and painted in ghost metalic grey.
Adding the pop out plexy glass crystal to compliment the insert.
Not to forget vintage tropic lume application to the dial indicase, sword hands and custom white painted center second hand with vintage lume as well.
I always fall for endlinks combination with leather strap. So DIY custom fitted endlink was made also the complimentary italian leather band

Wow beautiful, where did you source the bezel insert? I wish there were more mod options for the 013 (bezels, inserts) as so far being new to Seiko SKX, I have only seen a few 013 bezels and inserts from yobokies..
