    Why has it been so long since I checked on this thread? I keep wondering what 'x' ceramic insert will look like, or another type of edged bezel - and it's all here ! the pictures are a big help for someone like me that can't stop thinking about tinkering!

    Weird thing, I have the Seikostain coin edge on my 775 'J' version, was always a little loose for my liking, but ok. Just popped it off the 775 and onto my 777 'K' , and its pretty much as tight as the action on the stock bezel (although a slightly more 'industrial' clunky feel)

    Hmm, there might be something to this.
    I had the same thing happen to my SKX007, The J model might be a tad smaller, as the bezel fit more loosely, but nice n tight on the K model .

    All case parts are made in the same factory. It's not J VS K, it's tolerances that are allowable.

    Looks good! Where's the bezel insert from?

    Anyone tried the double-dome sapphire from Dr. Seikostain?

    Got pics?

    What's the quality like? How about the AR depth/clarity??

    TIA

    I hear you, never been convinced by the J vs K thing. But I was surprised there was any difference. Soon as I fitted it though, was like 'whoah' - much nicer action

    Just the same, there are variations on the click spring. I bought a brand new click spring for my 773 and it almost skips every other click (one is much more prominent than the next)

    My 777 has a completely different action from my 775. The Seikostain bezel accentuates it because of its "clackiness"

    Anyway - may I present Project Goldfinger. Just waiting on the DLW gold bezel and some Golden Tuna hands to complete:
