Bought this on a forums trading post here in Sweden. The picture belongs to the pre previous owner.

Its a nice mod, but I'm going to reverse the mod using Seiko parts. The PVD treatment is made by same company that PVD the swedish watch company Sjoo & Sandstrom's watches.

This is how I think (your thoughts/advices are much appreciated):

DIAL - decided
Got an old, scratched, original 7040 dial of Randall Benson, which he is making a pillow relume on right now.

HANDS - not decided
Original, or
SKZ209, or
MM300, or
other hands...?

BEZEL INSERT
Original in bleached and worn condition, or
a new Yobokies slant, aftermarket insert?

MOVEMENT
Original, or
7546 quartz?

Opinions are much appreciated.

Just my two cents worth---why not start with a non-modded 6309-7040/7049?

This is a very handsome treatment and should be saved or passed-on to someone who really likes it.

Which raises the question what would you want for it?

1) I agree with Jonathan that it looks pretty good the way it is, and I want a second hand like that for my SRP043K project. Do you know where the second hand came from ? Is it one of Yobokies?

2) Nice play Jonathan! >:D Good luck with that! :))
