    SKX013 with SKX007 dial and hands. Minus chapter ring.

    Haven't seen this one around much so posting a pic for anyone thinking of it.

    Doing the usual upgrade, with a new NH36 into a new SKX013 case. I have the SKX013 dial and hands, but thought I'd try this. Seems to give a cleaner look, and with the interesting refraction round the edge of the crystal the second hand looks like it is running all the way under the bezel. No loss in legibility as the 60 click bezel lines up fine as a minute track in place of the chapter ring.

    Also added black day/date discs for a bit cleaner look too.

    Was just going to flog this one off on ebay having experienced the SKX mod experience, but might keep chipping away with sapphire, ceramic bezel, decent bracelet and some 6R15 components.

    What did you use for the chapter ring?

    without the chapter ring can the dial ride up the hands? did you use anything to hold it down?
