  1. 7s26 movement swap

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I have a 7002-7001 with a dead movement, and before I start digging into it, I'd like to know if the 7s26 movement out of a modern SKX would be a drop-in swap. The cases look to be the same, but I do not want to commit to doing this if there are going to be issues, like stem length or date wheel...
  2. AM SKX Dial w/ Sunburst & Day/Date?

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hey all, I'm considering working with Brian from watchcomplications.com on a custom dial for an SKX project I'm toying with. Concept attached if interested - would love feedback. One thing that would cut down Brian's production time is if I could source a dial, versus him having to cut one...

    SEIKO & CITIZEN TRADING POST
    I'm cleaning out the collection to make some room and one of my SKXs had to go. This one comes on the Seiko jubilee bracelet that came with my other SKX007. The bezel insert, dial, and hands come from Dagaz. The chapter ring was painted orange to match the SOXA theme and it has a domed plexi...

    Hey guys, There is a SKX031J for sale on eBay UK, what do you think of this? I think it's pretty darn nice! Thoughts? I'm too new to post links so here is what to search for on eBay: Seiko SKX031J “Submariner” Diver Automatic Watch 7S26-0050 Made in Japan (rare) Do you think that's a good...
  7. Tools for installing hands?

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    I'm in the process of modding a few watches and need to get some more tools. The watches I'm modding are your basic skx007/009 with the trusty 7s26. My question to all you out there is what sizes of hand setting tools should I get? I understand that the 7s26 has hand sizes of 150/90/20 but what...
  8. 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
    This is my father's old SKX which is what got me into watch collecting. However it has been in-operational for five years and Seiko NJ couldn't repair it. They stated the parts were too old. I am very interested in fixing this watch as it has high sentimental value. Thanks for viewing, -Chris
