    My new skx009j1. I really like it so far and the Japanese day is pretty cool even though I can't read it.

    Just because these watches are a popular export to arabic speaking nations, so they usually come in english / spanish text, or english /arabic. You happened to get the latter :)

    I think the arabic is cool! I had even forgotten that it's read left to right.

    I have japanese day on my Tuna, and I usually prefer it to the english setting since I also hope to learn the japanese days...

    Re: How's adding a SKX011-K fit into this thread...

    I've been looking at this thread for 2 hours, and THAT is really cool. My first comment in 2 hours. Where would one buy that bracelet? The watch is a 007 with what bracelet and where would one buy it? (I know, I'm stupid).

    SKX007K with the following:

    - SKX171K dial (chronograph.com)
    - Tri-colour Plongeur Hands (Yobokies)
    - Seiko Super Oyster (Type IIa) bracelet (wjean28)

    The modding was done by a watchmaker, who is a Seiko AD in Germany. The watch is regulated and tested to 200m as well.

    For those of you who haven't heard, Noah Fuller recently passed away :( (10watches is temporarily closed while we mourn the loss of Noah Fuller..)
