This is the watch before I changed the hands.


Got a set of plonguer hands from yobokies sitting in the drawer doing nothing. So, I took it to my watchmaker to do a swap. ;)








I waited eagerly for Stella's 'shark' mesh to arrive. I am disappointed to find that the lugs of the watch is too short to mount the mesh. The combo would have looked smashing.

So, I have to make do with a flat end 20 mm flat end Watchadoo filed down to 19 mm to suit this Seiko5 case.

With a bit of grinding and cutting I manage to fix Stella's 19 mm 'shark' mesh to this watch. I'll post pics of this combo later.

The original length is too long for my wrist. The three holes in the clasp is not enough adjustment. I have to cut away three rows of the mesh.

Lost a few drops of blood from the finger while doing it. ;)
