    Hey everyone, I've got an Invicta 8926ob that I want to mod to look like an Explorer II. I've found the dial and hands I want but I'm having trouble finding a bezel thats close to the explorer. The Murphy bezel is close but it doesn't have the 24 hour indicators around it. I'd rather not do a...

    Hi all, I changed the crown on my vostok amphibia. The process of removing the back was smooth, the problems started back when I put everything back together... The issue is the same is I put the old crown or the new crown. I had hard time putting back the crown in place. I could push it...

  6. Pilots' & Military watches
    Hi, everyone. I just put together a, SKX007 mod with my own branding and a military aesthetic. I call it the Reticle because of the u-dot reticle on the dial. The original design called for Sinn aviator hands, but I decided to build it this way for now and change them out later when I'm itching...
  7. Seiko
    Hi, I just purchased an SNXS79. Mainly because of reviews and how beautiful the dial is. However much like others I think the case and specially the bracelet are really poor. I would like to mod much like the video My first Seiko Mod! Is there a place recommended to buy the parts? I am looking...

  9. Seiko
    Hi, I was wondering if a sapphire crystal that would fit an SNKL23 (for example) would fit an SNKL55? There are many different claims about the size of the watch online, even though I am 99% sure they have the same case. Thanks for the help.

    I happened to get 2 SNK805's by accident. Instead of returning the extra one, I changed the strap on one to leather. Now I am interested in changing the dial on one of them. I am new to watch collecting/maintenance/repair, it's become a hobby while in quarantine. Most of the mods forums I find...
  14. Seiko
    I found this post on reddit showcasing a Seiko homage to a gemset Rolex SARU. I know people love to talk down on this aesthetic, but I really like it and I'm wondering if anyone knows where to find a bezel like it. I know the quality of the gems won't be as good as the real deal, but I don't...

    Hi Guys, One of the reasons I love mechanical watches is seeing the second hand sweeping. I plan to buy a watch that I love the design but the watch doesn't have the second hand. So can I add an aftermarket second hand to it? All the best!

    I am looking to try my hand at modding stainless steel cases and was curious if you folks have recommendations for where to buy some at a good price but are authentic Seiko. I don't mind if they are modern or vintage, but ideally NOS so the rest of the case is in good condition without...
