Thanks man. Its a 6309 case that I bead blasted. Dial and hands from yobokies, bubble boy crystal from Swedefreak.
Thank you! not going to lie. . . . i might have to clone your build. and my girlfriend just looked at me like i was a lunatic for hunting a 6309 this morning while my 007 build is going to the watch maker next week haha
So, finally tried my hand at modding last night. The one on the left is a SNZH55 with a sterile submariner dial for a 2824 that I had to file down to fit, the Mercedes hands off of an Invicta 8926OB with the Invicta sign removed from the second hand, on a faux carbon fiber strap. The one on the right was going to be my Poor Man's Sinn/Spork before I was able to score a Spork. It's an Invicta 8926OB with cyclops removed and the Seiko NH35A movement that hacks and winds, and Yobokies dial and hands, on a Zulu. Next step is to shave the "INVICTA" off the side of the watch. (Pardon the failure to clean the dust off the crystals)
Finished my first mod over the weekend, definitely learned a lot. I did the dial, hands, chapter ring, bezel, and insert. I am preparing to redo this piece, as I have grown to really like the original SKX 007 & 171 dial. So I will circle back around once I finish..
I also need to finish my Sumo. Got the Saphire and insert ready to go, just need to find the time.
This one started out as one of Harold's brushed SS 12hr bezel inserts. It didn't look quite right on the bead blasted 007 so I sent it up to Jack at IWW to blast it. Knew it would remove the paint in the numbers and pip so I repainted them. First in all black and then I added the orange. Sorry about the crappy iPhone pics. It really doesn't look bad in person...
