My SKX171 mod
Thanks. Actually, I was about to tell Safetyfast how much I like that 171 mod - the bezel with the polished lip - I really like that against the swell 171 dial now with sword hands.
Anyway the one on my wrist at the mouse has Bob Thayer, Jr.'s, bezel. That's the distinctive thing. The dial and hands are Mk II and then Bob likes to black in the chapter ring since the dial has its own second marks - it makes the watch face look like it's down in a dark hole. Bob has a good eye for what could be. I like it. The glass was replaced with a flat AR coated sapphire; I did that for utility as I wear this thing a lot but actually the thing gives the watch a very distinctive look, especially around the edges although I'd be hard-pressed to describe it exactly.
I appreciate the response. Thanks!

safetyfast - could you tell me who provided the bezel insert?
Not my watch but it looks like the black PO bezel insert from yobokies.
