    Australia or sydney based modders?

    Hi all

    Ive searched (the forum) and emailed a few people, but had no real luck - are there any Sydney or Australian based skx modders/servicers (who will assist with mods)?

    Cheers
    Ryan

    Hi all - thanks for the responses.

    Looking to replace the existing crown (ne15 mov), bezel swap to a coin edge (with new insert swap) and really wanted a pressure test (so i be comfortable taking it swimming).

    Have you contacted Vintage Time Australia? They seem to specialise in Seiko. No affiliation. I saw on IG that they work on vintage Seiko, so perhaps they may be able to mod modern Seikos? Looks like they are based in Adelaide.

    If you are not replacing the crystal not sure why you are worried about pressure test. If seals are new on crown and on case back and lubed cant see how case would leak. If I replace crystal I remove movement and screw in crown and lave case in water tank (15 foot deep) for a day and if it is dry inside when it comes out I install the movement. If crystal has not been removed all is needed is care replacing the seals.
