PM send to the OP who is still active on this forum..
Thanks for the info. I am thinking about modding one myself. Do you happen to know if the standard SkX007 gaskets will suffice to attach the skx007/009 bezel to the orient? -> Standard Seiko Diver Caseback Gaskets 5 pcs - DAGAZ WATCH LTD.Sorry for the late reply, have been busy.
I just used a rubber o-ring/gasket of 0.8mm and 34-35mm diameter(not sure on the diameter).
The bezel turns, but it turns hard.
I am looking for a smaller o-ring, 0.6-0.7mm should be the correct one.
You could also use a wire of this thickness.
As far as clicks, of you use the original mako/ray click system (don't know the official name) you will have 60 clicks.
For the removing part, yes just with a knife.
Just take into consideration that the bezel could be hard to remove, I have damaged my Ray bezel while removing, thats why I replaced it by a Seiko one.
Good luck and let me know
I'm interested in the same! Has anyone tried to get an Orient bezel on the skx007? I'm actually looking to get an Orient Ray-looking bezel for the skx. If not the Orient bezel works with the skx, does anyone have other ideas on custom bezels for the skx (besides the Murphy ones)?Im wondering if Im the only one, who is thinking the other way around?!
= Is it possible to fit an Orient bezel on a SKX007/9 diver?! If so (and of course if it rotates with clicks) this would be a great way to get a coin-edge bezel on a skx
But my guess is, that I cant be the first to think about this, and sicne I never saw such a mod ... I think its not possible?!
No, it will not fit. The SKX bezel insert is flat and the Mako insert is sloped. The Mako bezel insert landing also has notches in it.Will the bezel insert of an SKX007 fit onto the bezel of an Orient Mako? (eg. switch black insert with green)
