Thread: Tools for basic modding

    Tools for basic modding

    I'm thinking of attempting some modding. I think that actually tinkering with a couple of watches rather than just buying and enjoying ownership is the next step for me.

    I'm probably looking at a FFF mod and a perhaps tweaking a Seiko 007 and taking it from there.

    However, after a few days researching the tools I need I haven't really moved forward much. Can I ask you all for some suggestions for specific tools or even a one-stop toolkit for the type of modding I'm talking about. I'd like to keep the overall tool spend below 100. Thanks all.

    Get yourself on Amazon and find a watch tool kit, typically their in a black canvass zip up pouch and you can get a full kit for under 20. I have had Breitlings Oris and Omegas open with mine. They look cheap and nasty, but they are good enough for starting out.

    Yep, what Matelot said. Like any job requiring tools, you'll soon find the ones you use the most and those will be the first to replace with something of a better quality that will be more "enjoyable" to use. A parts storage dish of some kind would also be a useful addition. The Cousins website is worth a look, if only for an idea of the staggering range of tools available.
