Here's my 007 with a silicon "tire track" strap I bought from Island Watch. I really like the stock Seiko straps, but on my wrist it's just too long for my taste. I wish they made shorter Seiko straps, but alas I haven't seen them if they do.
Ok, the thread says show off your 007's but I am a newbie and even though I am convinced I am buying a 007, I am still not sure how to modify my 007.
I've got this picture downloaded from the internet & it shows my dream SKX007. I know this is what I want.
The picture is owned by some gentleman named Ray K
Here it is.... I am trying to figure my way around on how to build it though... Any help in this regard (even via PM's) is hugely welcome

SEIKO: SNDA67, SKX779, SKX007 (mod), SNZG15, SKX-PMMM, 6309-7040 (12/1980 rfrb/mod),
7002-7000 (7/91 Loy's), SRP227 (mod), SNXS79, SSC031, SNKL45, SNX993 (mod),
SARB033 SPIRIT, PROSPEX SRP775 (mod), THE LATEST: PROSPEX SRP773 (mod)
Not sure where to source the bracelet but the hands and bezel insert are probably from a SKX011 and easy enough to come by since many people remove them from the 011 in favor of black.
edited to add: PVD bezel ring also easy to source.

Just got mine today and I have to say, the bracelet feels really cheap, though being lightweight has practical advantages.
Lume is pretty good, but it looked so much brighter in other photos.
Currently wearing: None
Someday: | Seiko SNDA57 | Stowa Antea 365 | Omega Planet Ocean |
Question, how long does the lume typically stay bright for after say a 30 second charge with a flashlight?
EDIT: Here's mine

Later I realized the minute hands also differs from the 007/009.
The jubilee bracelet looks nice, but personally I think it's crap.
Try a president, it's so much better. Here's my 007 mod on a president:
