    Nice! Where are you finding the Seiko VX-43, and is it a drop-in solution?

    Being the first time I've opened a watch, I think it went great. Although I spent 45 minutes getting the seconds hand back on. Next time, I'll drink the espresso AFTER fiddling with watches.

    6309, dial and hands from Yobokies, bracelet from William Jean.

And with a triplock conversion! Would love to see a write up on the movement swap and any other details you care to share.

    OK, jokes aside. The hardest part of this mod is the triplock conversion. Original crown tube removed and a brass insert has to be custom made.
    Once the triplock conversion is done...........the sky the limit. I am now thinking of doing a similar 6309-7040 but this time with a swiss quartz movt project <over the usual 7549 quartz conversion>.
    I am just waiting for a suitable damage 6309-7040 for sale to show-up.

    Anyway, concerning this unique mod. Its using :

    -6309 original movt spacer,
    -XW dial with no date,
    -ETA 2836 dial spacer
    -min & hr hands are Seiko size <same as ETA>
    -ETA 2842 movt

    *the 6309 movt spacer can be ignored if movt feet and screw are avail.

    The ETA movt stem height matches the 6309 after trial fitting.

    The rest are just assemble , adjust, fit and enjoy ! Name:  smiley.gif
