Pics are terrible...

SKA37* repair consisted of new double dome sapphire crystal from Crystal Times, new bezel/insert, and new bracelet. I cracked the original Hardlex crystal years ago. The original bezel insert was faded and scratched. I bought a 20$ insert off of eBay, but the quality was awful and the thickness was about 1/3 the thickness of the original, which is why I opted to replace the entire bezel. I could not find an original bezel insert on its own. Came out nice. I bought this watch originally as a beater watch.

SKX007K2 bought new and also ordered a double domed sapphire crystal with blue AR from Crystal Times. Also got a black ceramic bezel insert from them with raised, polished numbers. I put it on a Barco leather, NATO strap, but have been going back and forth between it and the jubilee bracelet it came on. This was my first “mod.” Very easy with a cheap watch repair kit and cheap watch press, both sourced from Amazon. For the price, I see why this is such a popular watch.
