    How hard is it to replace the glass to the DD sapphire? I've never modded a watch before. Is there a how to (youtube)?

    For me darn near impossible, special tools needed, many watchmakers will do it for around $40.

    Not terribly hard. You'll need a crystal press ($15 from Harbor Freight), a caseback tool (another $10 from HF), a bezel tool or thin Swiss Army knife blade for removing bezel, and something pointy to release the stem.

    1. Remove caseback.
    2. Release stem lock by depressing with something pointy and remove crown/stem.
    3. Remove movement.
    4. Use knife blade to remove bezel and click spring.
    5. Use crystal press to pop crystal out of the case.
    6. Use crystal press to install new crystal using the old crystal gasket.
    7. Re-assemble in reverse order.

    Nice! Where did you source them? Does the lume of the hands matches with the indices?

    Hands are from Dagaz. Lume isn't a perfect match but is close.

    Stock 777 and modded 773.
