    Post your MKII mods here ---->

    Hey guys,

    I have been a fan of MKII watches for a while, but I never seemed to get my hands on an original MKII. Instead I have spent some time tracking down the now discontinued parts to make modified watches. Right now I have 2 in my collection with parts and designs to make more in the future.

    So I would like to open a thread dedicated to all the watches that have been modified or "modded" using all or some MKII parts. Pictures are definitely welcome and short descriptions of the work done, base watch used, etc. would be great.

    Now onto my contribution:



    The first watch is based on two Omega pilot watches.
    dial - MKII replica of the Omega RAF issued pilot's watch from 1953
    hands - genuine Omega from a late 90's Omega Dynamic pilot watch
    base watch - O&W military watch with a handwind ETA 2801 movement

    The second watch is based on the Omega PloProf.
    dial - MKII PloProf
    hands - MKII Plongeur
    base watch - Seiko Black Monster with Seiko 7S26 movement

    Thanks for looking and I hope to see more cool MKII mods in this thread.

    Regards,
    Matthew

    Great looking watches Matthew, did you modify them yourself or did you get your watchmaker to do it for you? Either way I like them , I hope others like you post their watches.

    Cheers,

    Izzy

    Izzy,

    Thanks for the compliments. The pilot watch I had Jay at MCWW assemble for me before I was brave enough to start modding watches myself. The "plonster" I did myself and just finished today which prompted this thread.

    I have a couple. First up is a Marcello C Nettuno 3 with a MKII dial.



    Here is a Luminox mod.
