  1. Altering/Redirecting a Complication?

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    So I haven't been working on watches for very long (only completed my first SKX mod last week, have only opened up my 6139 once, etc.) but I've heard whispers on SCWF and elsewhere about people altering a watch complication to serve another function. For example, I've heard rumors of people...
  2. New member here. What do you think of this SKX173 mod?

    Mod & Restoration Reviews (Mod/Restored Watches)
    Still pretty new to this scene and not brave enough (and do not have the tools) to do my own modding. I did buy some parts from Harold (yobokies) for my SKX173 and had my local watch maker do the install. What do you all think? -Yobokies single domed AR crystal -Yobokies marathon bezel This...
  3. The Modern SKX

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    As a Seikoholic, I can't really say that I ever warmed up to the SKX. I’ve had a few over the years and with the exception of an original untouched 009, all of them were 007s heavily modified from new. I can safely say thatI have never actually owned an 007-dialed SKX in my watch box. I have...
  4. Mickey Mouse Diver Project

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Mods, if this is the wrong spot I apologize. I saw a thread on another forum where a member put a Mickey Mouse dial in a SKX and made an awesome Mickey diver. In the thread the member mentioned how he needed to take off the date/day wheel and change the size of the holes for the hands to fit. He...

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    I saw a thread on another forum where a member put a Mickey Mouse dial in a SKX and made an awesome Mickey diver. In the thread the member mentioned how he needed to take off the date/day wheel and change the size of the holes for the hands to fit. He also had to trim the dial down a bit. In the...

  8. Seiko Modifications

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    As someone who is new to the universe of modified Seiko watches, I am looking for reputable and reliable sources to purchase modified Seiko watches or a reliable person to whom I can ship for modification. It appears that a lot of the links on the internet are no longer available. For...
  9. New 6309 based TST (and more 6309 love) ...

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I've always found the 6309 cushion case to be one of the most attractive and comfortable case designs I have ever come across. Over time (and as a modder), I soon realized that my 6309s stayed in the watch box while the SKXs eventually got sold. This just reinforces my love of the 6309 and how...

  12. SKX007/SNK607 Mod

    Mod & Restoration Reviews (Mod/Restored Watches)
    Rewind to about August. My father sends me an e-mail with a link to a thread on WUS and a post by the Watcher. I PM'd him about the dial/hands combo but unfortunately he didn't know what model they came from. With a little detective work my Father found the watch, a SNK607. So an order from...

    Hi Guys, Long time lurker and fan of the mods i see on this site, so just before xmas i decided i would take the plunge and embark my very first mod on an SKX007 i had lying around due to running fast after an ill-fitted springbar popped and the watch went down a flight of stairs.

  15. Any good watch modders in the EU?

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    I'm looking for someone who can help me out on at least one major watch project. It would involve movement swapping (and most likely filing down a movement ring to make it fit), as well as modifying the case / drilling lug holes. Any ideas of who might be up for the task? Someone in Europe?
  16. Monster dial question

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hi guys, I'd like to ask if the individual indices on a Seiko Monster's dial can be removed? I'm referring specifically to the older version SKX779 / SKX781 series. Got an idea of a mod I'm brewing up that I'd need to have the indices removed, if possible. :cool:
  17. First Surgery on a Watch....SNZG 13K1 MOD

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Outside of a couple of batteries in years gone and the odd band I have never worked on a watch, let alone modified one. I have bought a few 7S26 carcasses from the watchcollector (ebay) and have started tinkering with the mechanisms. My first attempt at Modifying a watch was with the Seiko...
