  1. First Attempt At Modding + Lesson Learned

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    So today I attempted my first foray into watchmaking/modding - swapping the day/date wheel of a NH36 movement. This is the end result: You may notice that the day and date colors don't match. And that's because of today's lesson: don't skimp on tools. I, in my infinite wisdom, assumed that...
  2. Best Way to Acquire an SKX007 To Mod?

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    So I want to ease my way into watchmaking and I figured that modding an SKX would be the safest/most fun way to start. Problem is I had no idea that the watch on its own would be so expensive, on top of the cost of the actual mods and watchmaking equipment. What's the best way to get my hands...

    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...

  6. 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...

  8. 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...
  9. Cheap SKX007/9 on Amazon - any reason not to?

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I look at these occasionally, worndering at how legit they are. Some are as low as used prices on the forums, but have nefarious sounding titles like "overseas reimportation model." Anybody pulled the trigger?
  10. Newbie Modder, any tips?

    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. So a little...
  11. Can anyone confirm whether this new SKX009 is normal or not?

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    So I just received this watch yesterday, took about 6 days to get here. First off since I'm new to automatic watches so I did the following: - Found the watch not moving at all during unpacking. - Shook the watch, played around with its crown and metal ring trying to figure out how to get it to...
  12. SEIKO SKX011J Orange Dial $120

    SEIKO & CITIZEN TRADING POST
    Hey guys, Here is a watch that I just really like but I don't think I have the time to invest into this project. The issue with this watch is that it is not keeping time and when you're setting the time you have to pull the crown a little. Basically, my plan was to swap in a fresh 7s26...
