    Anyone able to mod me a Seiko

    Ive seen quite a few of these modded SKXís on Pinterest. Iím fancying the modded bezel and ceramic insert and the domed purple hue crystal. Is there anyone on here that can do the job and an idea on price

    Looks stunning. I'd also be interested in knowing.

    Did you ever get a reply to this? That mod in your picture is beautiful, I really like some of the SNK809 mods as well.

    Iíve just had a SKX009 modded by Tunokies on Facebook (Jason is his real name) I would highly recommend his work. Heís a real enthusiast, can help with sourcing parts directly to him and will even tell you if what youíve picked will work together. Also offers movement changes including hacking function, etc.

    Look him up on Facebook. Iíll try and post photos of his work later, or indeed his page has loads of previous work. Look out for mine, itís the one taken underneath a helicopter 😎

    What did you have done and what was the price?

    I had the watch already but didnít like the chrome looking stainless steel so decided to change quite a bit actually for asthetic reasons and to be more useful at work too. Jason also talked me into the hacking movement which again makes total sense for work.

    In the end I changed the movement, crown, sapphire crystal, chapter ring, bezel insert, bezel and hour/minute hands (kept the seconds hand) Very nearly the complete watch I know but as it was a milestone birthday present I wanted to keep some of it.

    Oh, he tested it on a new strap too so I bought that as it looked so good in the photos he sent.

    £350 all in with parts (which Jason ordered from 4 different retailers), labour and pressure testing.

    Thanks, that means a lot coming from this forum. I love it, it's always a gamble ordering from a parts site online but came together better than planned. I wear it for everything, work, surfing and everyday use.

    Just getting back to the thread...I can't recommend Tunokies enough, great guy, clearly loves what he does and his work speaks for itself. Great list of suppliers on his Facebook page too, you'll just need to scroll down for a while:

    www.facebook.com/tunokies/

    I found him here, among lots of other approved modders, while looking for parts on the DLW site:

    I found my lumed bezel insert here:

    That's really nice!

    I'm currently in discussion with Jason about a black/gold FFF. Will post up some pics when I finally get it
