This time modding of a Seiko SKX007. This very popular Seiko is often subject of modding, because parts are easy obtainable.
The watch was in bad state, and after I refinished the case and serviced the movement I wanted to do something different regarding the bezel color.
Changing the dial with one with round indices and Mercedes style hands I was rather pleased with the result

This is what you get when you have some time left.
Made it from parts I had lying around in the partsbin.
A quick and dirty wristshot. If you are interested send me an email at john[at]tentotwo.nl
This watch was found in a lot. Movement, crystal and case were damaged.
Nice feature of this watch is its crown on the left side, at 8 o’clock
I have been able to preserve the dial and hands, so they are original. The only thing I had to replace was the bezel-insert.
I put in a ‘pepsi’ (blue/red), because I liked the combo with a red/black Nato strap.
I am working on another CTZ at the moment, in the next posting I will post some pics of the overhaul of the movement.
The state the watch was in when I received it, is comparable with the other watches. I didnt made a picture of it…
The other day I had some spare time left, so I worked on a citizen diver I obtained… The 8200 200 mtrs. Work involved: A complete overhaul, changing bezelinsert, crystal and hands, buffing the case, finding a strap for it. Here some before and after pictures:
