    Help ID段ng design inspirations for this Seiko mod

    Hey everyone

    This weekend I dug through my random parts bins and assembled this Seiko (SKX031) mod. The choices were made simply based on what I thought looked cool. This post is asking for design precedents I have unwittingly drawn upon. Thanks in advance!

    And yes, the bezel insert is a little crinkled...not my ham-fist though! I bought this beat-up cerakoted SKX031 case and bezel just for modding a while back ;)

    I think it looks good, I've been wondering about the durability of that coating process..

    I can稚 say this applies to all cerakoting, but this particular example is pretty soft: so much so that I would not be surprised if it was actually the 喪attle-can variety...

    You may want to search for Dreadnought watch. There are many versions of this design over the years. This Seiko seems to have that resemblance.

    The dial is for a vintage Rolex GMT. Steinhart makes a very nice homage of it.

    Easy to read and.......t's a Seiko!

    Nice job.
