Default My first SKX mod.

I had an SKX that had been sitting in my watch box basically unworn for the last two years. The watch was a gift from my Mother-in-law so not something i wanted to part with. I decided to use it for my first Seiko mod.

I had the dial, hands and bezel made by stph_dxtr on Instagram. Ordered the chapter ring and sapphire from DLW.

I am looking for strap/bracelet recommendations. Contemplating getting a beads of rice bracelet from Watch gecko for it.

Its gotten mostly positive reviews in a Seiko group Im in on Facebook, but I feel like the Mercedes hands might make it too Rolex-esque. Considering aging the stock hands and swapping them out again. Id love to hear yalls feedback.

the stingray strap is fantastic - I'd leave it as such. I have a strap like that - its a dream.

Very cool
I'd want the dial to be a bit more low key though, i.e. without Prospex on it but hard to get one that colour I guess.

Very nice mod.

As to your concern about the hands, do a quick search for
Seiko Snzh55...those hands would be a great choice and will compliment the dial markers.

Love the mod though!

Best,

Mike
