    I don't typically mod watches, but in this case I did change the stock second hand to a SKX173 hand.

    Sometimes, small modifications MUST be done. Nice work.

    Re: New SRP Turtle - Mod Possibilities

    Has anyone done a dial swap yet?

    I haven't seen any yet, but am planning one for my SRP777 right now. I have a new Sumo dial arriving soon, along with MM300 hands and a double domed sapphire crystal. Once they all arrive I'll be assembling it.

    I haven't seen a dial swap just yet but it sounds fun. My wife tried to do something nice for our anniversary and bought me a srp779. Trouble is, I wanted the Coke bezel and not the Pepsi one. How hard do you guys think it would be to source a Coke bezel and then swap out the Pepsi one?

    I think getting OEM parts at the moment is difficult, but Yobokies and a bunch of others are working on aftermarket inserts. I'd expect them to be showing up soon, and likely for cheaper with more variations.

    I'm planning something like this for down the road. Would love to see pics of this when it's done. I have heard the dial is a direct swap. I can't confirm it though.

    Can confirm a Sumo dial is a direct swap now. Still waiting on new hands and a sapphire, but here she is so far:
