I have been on a roll in acquiring Seiko modded dive watches, mostly the SKX007 have been received.

The first two have been received and the third will follow shortly.

All three are SKX007 models but have been modded to look different and pretty cool. Enjoy, I am.

Love the PMMM. I've been slowly gathering up the parts to have a go at one myself.

Well Done. A good way to acquire interesting watches without breaking the bank.

The SKX007 case is a great size and weight that works on almost any strap combo. There are also tons of bracelet options for it.

I really like the first one and saw that on the forums. I gave sending an offer some thought.

I like silver dials and that is one of Noah's creation which made me like it more. What do you think of the Yobokies anvil bracelet?

Yummy, love that PMMM. I think I will have to get a MM300 before I continue with my 007 buying spree.

It is a good bracelet with one flaw. If you have to remove a link, you must remove a pin. The other bracelet more widely used has screw in pins which are more convenient. Looks wise this bracelet does make the watch pop.

Great mods Bill!
Love that MM pvd. I'm gonna have to do a DLC MM one of these days.

I got my latest project temporarily derailed until I get back parts in the slow going mail due to strike.

Here's some.

The Orange Dial PVD is the best mod ever. I remember inquiring about that one, but didn't pull the trigger.

Like your three latest, especially the first one. :thumbsup:

Nice Seiko "mod" grouping, congrats!
I have owned several Yao 7S26 "mods" back in the day, all gone now. Still have a few Seikos though:

regards,
mark

Great looking mods,i like them Bill :thumbsup: I started modding my Seikos because i dont really like most of the Seiko hands. Its fun and fairly easy to change hands and dials and you get a new look any time you fancy a change :cheers:

Noah, rest his soul, did a 3 row on the Tsunami. Only time I've seen it before myself.
