Hi guys, new to the forums here. Just got my new SKX007 and already keen on doing mods. So far I have ordered hands, bezel insert, Nato straps and double dome sapphire from Dagaz. Anyone know where I can get a sloped bezel? I don't like the stock bezel as it sort of slopes inwards and would most probably look odd with the domed sapphire. Will the Shogun bezel fit on the sxk007?

Also, the lume is nuts on this watch. Looks like a torch in the dark.

Oh no! Hope you know how deep the well is when starting the mod process. Just like M&M's, you can't stop with one..........or two..........and so on.;-)

Congrats and welcome! You will love that 007 and it will mean even more when it's customized to your specs.

Congrats on your SKX.

Concerning your question about getting a sloped bezel, Dagaz sell them as part of a dome conversion kit. See site Web Store - DAGAZ WATCH LTD..

Since you already purchased the crystal, I suggest that you send an email to Dagaz asking whether they will sell you only the sloped bezel.

Hey, an aussie! I just got my skx007 from a forum member in aus too. Love it. I'm just going to leave it as it is besides the default oyster bracelet it came with. Not really fond of the rubber strap.

Welcome to the forum Billy.

The Dagaz double-domed sapphire works pretty good with a Murphy or SKX007 bezel and a SKX007 bezel insert. See my recent mode here. You might want to consider the Dagaz Superdome kit that includes the glass and bezel insert. But, I don't think the bezel insert in the Superdome kit will work with the double-domed sapphire you ordered. Can't remember where I found this picture, but I really like how the bezel insert and the sapphire are flush. I think my next mod will include a Dagaz Superdome kit.

Unfortunately I am quite far deep into the well now. Can't stop thinking about the possibilities with all the different mods. Is it normal to be this excited about something most people would consider mundane?

That looks amazing!

I asked Jake about getting the sloped bezel insert but he confirmed it wouldn't sit flush with the sapphire I ordered. So now I'm considering the dome kit with either the black tsunami bezel insert or midnight blue insert. Really can't make up my mind here though. If anyone has these, pics would really help :)

Hey mate, I reckon the rubber strap is quite nice but I've ordered a set nato straps. Come to think of it, I've probably spent as much on the mods as the watch itself.

I have decided to buy the dome kit from Jake so will be selling my double dome sapphire and Military Sub style bezel insert. They are obviously brand new and untouched. I can do the sapphire for $50 and the insert for $15.

The sapphire from Dagaz:
Web Store - DAGAZ WATCH LTD.

The insert from Dagaz:
Web Store - DAGAZ WATCH LTD.

Apologies if I'm not supposed to post items for sale here.

You will be more likely to sell your parts if you post a FS ad in the Watches - Books, Parts, Tools, Winders & other Accessories forum.
