    Project SKX777

    NEW WATCH: Project SKX777

    I love the look of the SKX007 and will never be without one. I love the new SRP777, but the case shape is a 8/10 for me, and I wanted a new, fresh look to the SKX. Seeing some of the new parts available, and some excellent mods, I came up with my new concept.

    • Stock SKX007K
    • DLW double dome sapphire crystal
    • DLW black Mercedes hands
    • DLW Submariner ceramic bezel insert
    • Yobokies new Submariner bezel

    I am debating on using the stock second hand....but I'm still unsure of that. Maybe I will tip the end of it orange or white to add some dimension to it. The white end of the stock second hand is what makes me think of doing that. Also, I love the subtle color on the SKX dial, but this will have some serious depth with the SRP777 dial. So I can forego that. Plus this gives me a stock SKX dial to modify and remove the day portion of the opening and see if I can achieve the 'date only' window I posted previously. Can't hurt to have one to prototype that with.

    Sending it off next week. Can't wait for the finished product. Stay tuned!

    It's almost a shame not to do the movement swap too while it's under the knife! :)

    I really like the turtle dial, but the case is too big for me.
    Is it just a direct swap?
    Can't wait to see the results.

    But you are very correct. But instead of making this a totally new watch, I wanted to my version of an SKX with some upgrades. Love that movement, but trying to stay pure somewhere - lol.

    Project SKX777

    Watch is being worked on starting today. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    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!

    Wow, what a nice mod. I can't wait to see the final product. And that last photo...whew.

    I personally like the white tipped second hand. Very cool project and can't wait to see the final product!
