I recently bought a Save the Ocean Samurai and I was wondering if it's possible to change out the dial for the Save the Ocean Turtle one?
I asked Seiko customer care in UK but they didn't seem to know what they were talking about. They said it's not possible because the movements are different sizes and one has a day wheel. It's no use talking to the boutique in London where I bought the watch because they couldn't even pronounce Seiko correctly.
The plan would be to get my hands on the entire 4R36 movement and dial from a Turtle, and plop it into the Samurai case. Is this technically feasible? Do I even need to do that? Could I just put the day wheel and dial on the 4R35 from the Samurai?
I looked online and it seems the 4R35 and 4R36 are the same exact size (27mm). The only difference I can see is the crown position. But can you just rotate the whole 4R36 movement counterclockwise to put the crown in the 3 O'clock position (Samurai position), and rotate the dial to make up for the offset?
Please excuse my ignorance, I am new to the watch world!
