Hello guys!

The SKX Pelagos mod from nicoGT (over @ http://forums.watchuseek.com/f21/my-seiko-pelagos-1020830-6.html) is absolutely fantastic and well thought! Rebuilding it, is quite a challenge. But I accepted. :rolleyes:

To align all the chapter rings, dial and bezel insert was not easy and some of the parts are sold out and very hard to find … it took me over 3 months to find the parts.

For example I was unable to source a dial with ~white indices that has the “Water150mResist – 17 Jewels” inscription on it. So I decided to use a OEM Seiko SKX173 dial. Which has a great lume, however it is a little bit greenish. It also lights different than SKX007/9 dials. The best would be to stamp out little white plastic indices and glue them on a flat 7002 dial. I don’t know how to do that.

Hands are C1 lumi nova that light not so strong (ideal für SXK007 dials) but look ~white on daylight.

Coinedge bezel is from crystal times.

Here are some pictures taken with my mobile last weekend. What do you think?

Greetings from Austria!

The cut out chapter ring is from a monster watch. Harold sells it. Then you need a flatter ring above with the minutes marks. I have two nos left.
