    Well they certainly can't drown the horse! (Get it? PADI? Professional Association of Dive— Nevermind. I'll show myself out.)

    Maybe they can. Wouldn't doubt half the people wearing them ever get them in the water, much less even know how to swim.

    labor and drilling lugs ?? (because at that time i had multiple projects so he charged me all as a package)

    my other SKX has no day/date its nice and clean from aesthetic point of view, but i have a habit of checking my watch for date. I catch myself looking for it throughout the day however.

    Artifice Horoworks offers several models of "SKX Enhanced." You can get a Crystal and Movement upgrade for just under $500 (which is a bit of money, but you don't have to do the work). Or you can go for their full hog upgrade that updates almost everything besides the worst part of an SKX - the bezel insert. The more serious version costs just shy of a grand, and is heavy on the AH branding.

    I was actually thinking of this one by Hotduck with the PADI dial/hands:
    SKX PADI

    I really liked how it looked without the red 5 minute marks on the chapter ring and SKX case.

    I like yours as well but I personally would have preferred the stock SKX/Turtle handset.

    Citizen Nighthawk BJ7000-52E
    Garmin VivoActive (Spends a lot of time on bike handlebars+sleep tracking)
    Tissot T Touch II

    Wait, wait, wait... is the OP asking for an SKX with, um, professional specifications or pro specs? Beware of what you wish for...

    Mate that SKX777 mod is stunning, well done sir!
    May I ask what is that bracelet on your SKX?
    Cheers
