    What is yobokies mod?

    Sorry if I misspelled that. I often see "Yobokies modded crystal, hands etc" in watch descriptions. What is that? Some company making aftermarket upgrades for watches such as new hands, crystals etc? I did the search on the net but found no Yobokies website of any kind. Someone cares to explain? Thanks. Dan

    yobokies (seikoboy backwards) is an individual named Harold Ng from Hong Kong I believe that specializes in Seiko modifications, and offers full or partially modded watches for sale, mod/replacement parts and accessories, and some special finishing for some models ......mostly all particularly for Seiko watches using 7s26/36, divers and Seiko5 models.....and others

    He is a member here and as well as on other sites. I don't think he has a website, but if you google yobokies mods, you will see a link to his examples of his work
