Brett wanted an original looking mod for his SKX007 and it doesn’t get better than this. A simple coin edge bezel with a high quality ceramic insert around a DD AR sapphire crystal. It screams factory and classic looks which I personally love.
The chapter ring was secured in place to aid alignment so I guess that’s not factory… I’m not the first to wonder why Seiko have ignored the alignment issue for all these years when the fix surely can’t be too difficult for a company that manufactures every single component in their watches.
An unexpected surprise on this mod was the discovery of a crushed crystal gasket. The watch is one month old and has only been worn a couple of times according to its owner.
