So some weeks ago I tried again to own and wear a Seiko diver, the SKX009 to be exact. Maybe it was the red/blue bezel or maybe the sapphire crystal, or maybe the Stargate hands that I installed on it... well I think actually that it was the result of all these together that made it a really nice watch and once on the wrist I actually decided that even if it was not as large as other divers, it would work for me. And it did, and in fact it worked so well and I decided to replace some of my larger divers with some more SKX models.
First one is the SKX009, this is all stock but it has the Seiko Stargate hands as I mentioned. It also has a sapphire crystal installed.
Next is a Seiko SKX171, I installed the hands of the Seiko SNZH55 (FFF model) and a aftermarket bezel and bezel insert from Dagaz.
This is another Seiko SKX171 but I installed on it the SKX007 dial, the Seiko SRP043 (Spork) hour and minute hands and a seconds hand from another Seiko. I also installed an aftermarket bezel insert from Dagaz.
This is a Seiko military, I believe SRP169 model, I got an original Seiko SNKF011 dial and hands and a Seiko Stargate seconds hand installed. This watch is 40mm in diameter and has 20mm drilled through lugs. Hacking and handwinding.
