    UPDATE: The Patriot Edition is reserved for an SKX009 build that's coming up.

    Here's what Duarte sent me just now saying he finished the build.

    Wanted to get some opinions on the second hand:
    1) black mercedes hand
    2) stock SKX second hand
    3) paint the black mercedes hand tip RED past the lume dot
    a) orange tip
    b) yellow tip
    c) white tip
    d) blue tip

    Then of course I see this mod....OMG!
    Okay: white-tip seconds hand adds cohesion to the overall design. Like this a lot.

    And, that last image: oh, yes, a great one.

    Boom. Wow, you done did it. A lot of customized jobs never rang the bell for me, but this one hangs together so damn well it's amazing Seiko didn't do it themselves. Take a bow, David.

    Thank you! I wrestled with the second hand a lot - debating on stock or aftermarket, color tipped or not, but ultimately felt like stock tied the whole thing together.

    I can't wait to get it back and on my wrist.
