Excellent mod, one of the best I've seen.
I just would have left the original crown alone.

SMMC today. FWIW, I also found this watch less than compelling when I tried it on several different times at an AD. That changed when I got to spend some time with one.

The strap helps a lot. The bracelet is... uh... not for me.

Thanks JP. Yeah, the bracelet is nice and all with the adjustable clasp, but I prefer it on other straps. There is something not quite right with the overall look with the bracelet. Though my bracelet came with the PCL's brushed out by the previous owner (which is way better IMO), and I'll still put it on occasionally.

:cheers:

Thanks. It's actually my first ever mod. The crown is chunky for sure and lot easier to use than original

Man that looks amazing on that strap!! I always found this model less that impressive, but on that strap it's killer!

Just in yesterday and loving it. Really hope I keep it for the long haul. Can't really imagine a better daily watch for comfort and reliability.

Good choice. That's why I bother giving a reasoned response to questions like yours... on DWC. I think you made a great choice.

I also have trouble using the 007 crown. The guards do a great job getting in the way.

Great pics Dave, enjoy the beach!

Oh and it's true the skx009 crown is a bitch to operate.

I'm interested to hear your take. You have the too-short-hand version I think. This one is better, but how much? :scratch:
