  1. Watchmaking
    Hi all, Title says it all, does anyone know where to source blank stainless steel bezel inserts? I'm in the medical field, and I'd love to put a pulsometer bezel on my Orient Mako II, but of course these aren't standard so I'm hoping to find a blank insert and do some custom etching. There are...
  2. Orient
    Hi all, I'm thinking about buying a Orient RA-AA0C (the turquoise-dial Commuter) and having it modded with more colorful/contrasting hands if possible, to create a kinda poor man's non GMT Farer Lander. I'm totally new to modding (and will probably hire someone to do the actual work). How would...
  3. Glycine
    Hello, I have a Glycine Airfighter Chronograph.. and it's got one minor problem that's puzzling: The crowns (in my opinion) are low quality. They're metal, covered with rubber. The crown which locks down the 24 hour rotating bezel has fallen off. The crown used for winding has a loose...
  4. Dive watches
    Hi guys and gals, I am no watch expert or a big collector but I love a new watch. I also don't have a huge or special collection (total of 4 watches) thus I'm a newbie. I often hear xy watch has more MODS then watch xx.. For example the orient Mako and Ray have more MODs then the Kamasu. What...

  6. Straps & Bracelets
    Hey guys. Just completed a really interesting restoration (will be the topic of another post), but the Camille Fournet strap I've purchased doesn't fit within the shallow lugs. My immediate thoughts are a curved spring bar might do the job, but I'm unsure how to reshape the spring-bar section of...
  7. Russian watches
    Hello, First post to the forum though I have always been a lurker. I have recently copped a VOSTOK 650841 and absolutely LOVE it. Love it so much that I want to make it better, upgrade it and keep it forever, and make it an heirloom item. Problem is I have no clue with what I am doing and the...
  8. Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    SOLD. Thanks to buyer and WUS. Originally an AD purchase. Includes box, stamped warranty card and LOTS of extras, including some premium upgrades that enhance the original aesthetics of the watch. The double domed crystal showcases the dial nicely. Contrast in the sapphire insert sets off the...
  9. Seiko
    Hi everyone! New member here, but I've read many posts in the past and always found the information here super helpful! I'm planning my first mod on a Seiko 5 and I have everything picked out and ready to purchase, but I happened upon a picture of a GS in stainless steel with white face, but it...
  10. Watchmaking, How To's and Technical Resources
    I am new to the forum but have been a watch collector and hobbyist for some years. I have a question on two Seiko watches I have and mods I would like to attempt. The first is a Seiko 5 SNZG09K1 with a 7S36C movement, the day/date window is at three o’clock as is the crown and stem. The second...
  11. Watches - Books, Parts, Tools, Winders
    I have 3 Seiko dials up for grabs 1 x skx oem dial, 1x oem 7n36 sawtooth dial 1x sterile dial for a 4r35 movement. to sweeten the deal I'm adding a 24mm isofrane strap Very dark Blue but looks more Black color than blue. Not willing to separate because of expensive international shipping...
  12. Affordable watches
    I'm a rank newbie to the watch collecting world, but have quickly become hooked. I recently bought an Invicta 8926OB and decided to remove the cyclops. That was the only mod I had initially planned, aside from already switching out the bracelet for a Bond-ish Zulu, and a leather Nato in reserve...
  13. Dive watches
    Orient Blu Ray II with a Yobokie coin-edge bezel and black, retro ceramic insert with red...zero marker? (what's that thing called?) The strap is a Blushark Alphashark (their premium line) "Uncle Sam" NATO strap. The blue in it almost perfectly matches that of the face (bit of a gamble but it...
  14. Seiko
    Hi Chaps I already own an SRP773J1 and am very happy with it. But I've had this itch to mod it and have purchased a crystal, coin edge bezel, ceramic insert, chapter ring, dial, hands, case back and band. So as you can see I pretty much am replacing most of the watch. Then I thought...
  15. Russian watches
    I want to refinish a new Amphibian 090 to a fine satin finish (not brushed etc.) My thinking is that it would be quicker to get unifomity to start with a polished case and bring it down instead of going from the matte to satin. Any one done this enough to have an informed opinon? I've done a...
  16. Affordable watches
    So I've been bitten by the modding bug after doing my first one on a 8926 I wear for work. I really enjoyed working on it and love the new look I've given it. I want to mod some more watches, and I've been looking at seikos because of their low price, high quality, and parts availability...
  17. Seiko
    Hey Y'all, I'm about to pull the trigger on a brand new SKX173. I love the dial and the differences between it and the 007 are just enough to blow me away. I'm looking to mod it slightly by swapping the hands. Trying not to go the Benz route, and would love to see some of your 173 mods! Post...
  18. Seiko
    Hey guys, I am new to this forum and to modding watches, but I am in need of help with my Seiko skx031. I picked up the rare discontinued piece on eBay a few weeks ago, and generally it is in great condition, with a few marks on the bracelet and a bit of eroded paint on the bezel. Whilst I can...
  19. Seiko
    I though we could make a source list for manly SKX007/009 mods, they are usually selling mods for other models as well. Please post links that I may have missed out and I'll ad them to the list. Fell free to include ebay stores like One Second Closer. In no particular order: Murphy...
