So I have dipped my toe into the modding pool and I was able to swap the crystal and bezel on my skx007.
I have scratched the mineral crystal on my snk809 now and feel like it is time to mod it. I'm looking at doing the crystal (domed Sapphire), new dial, and swapping to a nh35a movement. I have done a lot of searching and read a good bit. One thing that isn't clear to me is on the dial. For example Dagaz sells 3 o clock dials and 4 o clock dials (snk and skx have interchangable dials) but I'm putting a 3 o clock nh35 movement into a 4 o clock 7s26-02J0 case. Thus would I buy a 3 o clock or 4 o clock dial? I'm guessing a 4 o clock since I have seen people with Seiko 5 dials in skx cases with nhxx movements.
I think understand the date wheel and stem issues I will encounter. These articles seem to cover that well:
