Default Second Mod, Sinn like Big Mili

Obviously modding in France is not as "normal" as in GB or US . that why we are few on usual french fora to discuss and show our modds.... Some people use to to think we are heretics when we transform our seiko's as PO or Sinn like etc.... Some french people here could confirm.... I consider it's a privilege to be able to improve the look of our modest seiko five, or SKX etc....


So my second mod is a ....Sinnitary,


Seiko Big mili, on a home made saddle stiched strap (one more hobby...)
Dial and hands by Yobo.


While mounting i broke second hand, unfortunately. I used the original one instead.


The result is :








The difficulty here (excepted the second hand...) is to find that right mix of dye to put on a raw vegetal tanned leather.


I made many other leather straps, watchband etc..... May be i like to change watchband much more than watch itself.....
