I'm seeing that watch everywhere today. WUS, Head Fi, and my wrist!
My only mod ... 6309-7040 with hacking movement, 6105 dial & hands (aftermarket), and 6105 domed crystal.
It is a 7S36 movement in there.
No kinetic, just auto.
I was going to do it myself but my caseback ball couldn't open the case so I had to take it to my local watchmaker to do the job.
Dial and handset from Yobokies.
Great mods Lew.
Now you just have to show us the other 287 watches in your collection.
Good to have you here.
just the 3 mods for me .first up compulsory monstermod.
next up 6309/6105 mod .
last is my modded frankenmonster cant decide what it looks better on rubber or nato for now its on a nato.
some amazing mods on display fellas well done.
Yes, I did the work on all of them. The 6105 came with an aftermarket dial which I really disliked and so I thought it would not be too immoral to modify it with high quality parts. As you can see the dial is from MkII as are the hands. I have replaced the bezel insert now with an original Seiko insert from an SKX diver and the crystal is an AR coated sapphire.
The two 6309's arrived looking something like this:
The insert on the first is MkII, the crystal from Swedefreak, the dial from Noah Fuller and the hands from Paulynn's Collections on Ebay. New gaskets all round and a refinish to the case.
The second has an insert from Noah, modified with a Seiko lume pip from a trashed skx insert, a crystal again from Swedefreak, dial from Noah and hands from Yobokies. I also had to change the stem and crown with aftermarket. I will probably change the hands soon.
Both 6309's also have new 6309 movements, sourced from NOS 6309 dress watches.
