Orange Samurai back from Duarte...

Post by sierra11b » Fri May 11, 2018 6:14 pm

…and in about a week.

SRPC07 with SRPB55 Bezel (insert swap) and Crown procured from Ebay. Asked he install a domed sapphire crystal.

Watch is running tits-on the second so no adjustment needed. Got lucky… Well, until the movement potentially acts-up in one form or another.

I think it turned out quite nice:

It's a SRPB55 Bezel with the SRPC07 orange/black insert.

I had to google that stuff to understand. Black bezel and crown, plus sapphire. The rest is stock. Correct?

That’s what I eventually wanted.

I did buy a fully lumed ceramic insert for this build just to try, but decided the OEM black and orange insert suited the build better.

So what I’m left with is SS bezel, crown, a srpb55 black and gold insert, and that ceramic aftermarket insert.

I’m tempted to sell all of it but have to wonder if the bezel and/or inserts would be compatible with any other Seiko? I might try for another build eventually with the knurled samurai goodness,

If anyone here can brainstorm on compatibility for a mod of their own, I’ll practicality give it all away on price.
