Default Movement Swap Question

Please excuse my ignorance if this is a stupid/obvious question.

Would it be a straight swap from a Seiko 5 into an SKX case and vice verse (obviously changing the crowns over)? Both have 7S26 movements with 4 o'clock crowns.

I'm wondering what an SNXS79 dial and hands would look like in the bigger SKX case with a polished chapter ring.

Thanks in advance.

I think this will work. Although if I'm not mistaken SKX uses a slightly thicker dial/movement holding ring. If movement rattles in case then you will need to swap out. Crown will work. This will be a good mod. Good luck

Thank you for the information.

Can the movement holding rings be bought separately?

Yes. The part number is 4408171, but first check the movement in the SKX case it might work.
