    Love the fonts and spacing on the bezel.
    Would you be kind enough to post the source for the Modded Bezel.
    I'd be interested in this for my 007.

    Where can i find a strap and deployment like this?

    I dont think i want a leather strap, but maybe a silicone or rubber strap with a deployment like this would look pretty nice.

    EDIT: Never mind. Should have searched before posting. Found them both

    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

    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.

    I've been thinking of doing the same thing with mine. This makes me really want to do so.

    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.

    I agree. I'm definitely considering changing the bracelet, but a few people already complimented me on the watch and they say they really like the bracelet.

    Question, how long does the lume typically stay bright for after say a 30 second charge with a flashlight?

    EDIT: Here's mine

    I knew there was something wrong with this picture, the seconds didn't look right. Its a 013 :)
    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:
