I like it and I'm sure you meant SKX173 second hand.

Looks great.

Is there a service for patina and bezel ghosting? I don’t have the tools, knowledge, and too lazy.

I’m going to give this some serious thought for my srp777 once my srp775 comes back from Duarte.

Saw a srp777 done by uncle Seiko that looked great.

Going to have Terry's guy (Rane) give this a shot on my heavily modded SRP777. A tasteful level of patina similar to Terry's or maybe just a tad darker, but NOT some of those super dark mods floating around.

Figure why the hell not as I've pretty much done everything possible to make it a 6306 :shrug: :

I just saw his post. Love it. I’m sending him an SKX007 as soon as I can find a cheap one.

Both Terry’s & Eric’s look really really good.
