    My SRP777 Turtle mod

    I finally finished it this week.

    High double domed sapphire with purple A/R coating. Signed crown. Brushed steel chapter ring. Coin One bezel. PO styled chapter ring. Regulated to within two seconds a day.

    Love it.



    Side on with the low profile sapphire fitted:

    Thanks.

    John (the tiger uk) may sell them but I got mine directly from the supplier, Duncan at 23--59 on the bay. They are not cheap but do add a touch of quality.

    I wonder if the movement and crown combination from an SRP7xx would drop straight into an SKX007. As you're probably aware, the 4r36 will fit the SKX but the sticking point to most modders is finding the correct crown to fit. The normal solution is to fit a crown and stem from a SARB059 (I think) but these are getting harder to find.

    Cool thanks. The low profile sapphire and coin edged bezel looks great too.

    Would also like to know if the movrments are the same.

    I've just sent my 007 to John (The Tiger UK) for a TST shroud, same sapphire and bezel as yours but with an 007J dial and black date discs. Just need to find the date discs and dial now.

    Have a SRP777 coming tomorrow from David (TaketheCannoli) so might go down the same route as you with that - definitely sold on the crown.

    I popped the ceramic insert on it and it looks pretty good too.
