Smile Seiko SKX007 Pelagos Mod

Hello guys!

The SKX Pelagos mod from nicoGT (over @ http://forums.watchuseek.com/f21/my-...1020830-6.html) is absolutely fantastic and well thought! Rebuilding it, is quite a challenge. But I accepted.

To align all the chapter rings, dial and bezel insert was not easy and some of the parts are sold out and very hard to find … it took me over 3 months to find the parts.

For example I was unable to source a dial with ~white indices that has the “Water150mResist – 17 Jewels” inscription on it. So I decided to use a OEM Seiko SKX173 dial. Which has a great lume, however it is a little bit greenish. It also lights different than SKX007/9 dials. The best would be to stamp out little white plastic indices and glue them on a flat 7002 dial. I don’t know how to do that.

Hands are C1 lumi nova that light not so strong (ideal für SXK007 dials) but look ~white on daylight.

Coinedge bezel is from crystal times.

Here are some pictures taken with my mobile last weekend. What do you think?

Greetings from Austria!

Skx makes a fabulous pelagos mod, heres mine. I bead blasted the case and miltat super oyster II for that titanium look. Ceramic sloped bezel insert in A coin edge bezel with double domed blue ar sapphire that lines up perfectly.

The cut out chapter ring is from a monster watch. Harold sells it. Then you need a flatter ring above with the minutes marks. I have two nos left.
