    Modding an Omega SMP - opinions please!

    Would like your opinions on which bezel looks better & suits the 2254.50 best?

    Option A: A bezel from the ceramic SMP (photoshop graciously done by Chris/Muddy250, thanks!)

    Option B: a bezel from a PO 2500 (1st pic from ASRSPR, 2nd from EL)

    What the OEM watch looks like:

    I prefer the scalloped edges on Option A vs. the coin edge of the PO (BTW, I know option B will work & am trying to figure out if Option A will)

    Would love to hear your opinions.

    I like to keep my watches original. Hence, to me the original bezel would look best.

    I even keep my 007 Seiko stock. But that is just me.

    Option A looks like it was made for the watch, option B looks frankenstein-ish. I would go with option A all day long...

    Ironically, the SKX007 has one of the designs that least benefits from tampering. A lot of people do horrible things to the poor watch.

    In this case, all of the above look like they work to me however.

    Option A is by far the best. I am a sucker for ceramic bezels.

    Another saying No Mod - although if you must, again, A.

    To be honest, apart from you, only a total WIS or thief trying to sell it will know it's been modded.
    In my opinion, B will make an expensive watch look like a $40 Hong Kong "genuine replica"...
