Hello everyone! I was curious if anyone knows of any thinner case back replacements for the Skx. My goal is to attempt to reduce the overall thickness of the watch. Thanks!!

Welcome to The Watch Site! (y) (y)
You would have to remove the automatic winding rotor to use a thinner case back. Even then it may not fit.
You could try a case back from a quartz watch that is if the same diameter...

Or take the bezel off, or just buy a non divers watch and put the SKX gubbins inside.

I had a member machine off the wave logo in a series of casebacks so I could engrave them as a gift for my groomsmen when I got married. It made them a little bit thinner, but not much. You can now buy “blank” engraving-ready SKX backs on eBay - may be worth looking at, but you’ll lose 1mm if thickness at most - and most is that’s in the logo itself, so I suspect it’ll wear about the same. As others have said, you still need the inside clearance for the winding rotor.
