    In case you haven't been over to the Seiko forum, Jake from Dagaz watch is helping to create a Seiko mod to capture the look of the Tudor Black Bay.

    i have always likedthe tudor look. This could bean interesting project. Thanks for sharing.

    The lugs are unfortunately too short. It looks like a fun project and I'm sure it'll look good in the end, but a lot of Seiko 5's are prone to having short lugs if that's the base they are using. The Tudor has beautiful long lugs, giving it a nice elegant look. The Seiko may become the chubby adopted step sister.

    It gives me pleasure to see time fly by on a nice watch.

    I'm not a fan of the logo he uses either.

    I love the Black Bay and I'm all for making an affordable version. Unfortunately... Seiko doesn't really have a case that fits the shape well in my opinion.
    Shut your mouth and wear your Alpinist.
    Note that "Your Alpinist" is metaphorical and in truth refers to your most versatile watch.

    I don´t think the intention is to produce a Replica of the Tudor but an Theme inspired Modd.
    Something like the Seiko FFF -again not that much mistakable with the Blancpain (at least to an WIS).

    I'm up for an affordable version as well. I think the mock up looks great!

    What's the base for this mod? SKX031? Or will he be fabricating cases as done for the Tsunami?

    The base in the mockup is a SNZH (the FFF watch). Nothing is set in stone right now, as far as i know the discussion is going on.
