    Joot SKX mods

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with Joot Co? or better yet if anyone here knows him?

    He is a London based Seiko modder that runs a parts and build service for Seiko divers

    https://www.instagram.com/jootco/


    I paid him £350 for a heavily modded SKX007 with the agreed turnaround time of 8 days. That was 5 weeks ago

    I have sent him 2 emails and a facebook message over the last month and got nothing in response, in that time he's posted multiple times on instagram account so I know he's still around

    I'm at the point of claiming my money back through Paypal but the thing is I actually really want his product, hence why I've been hanging on so long. Any help contacting this guy would be much appreciated

    Where in London where they? One of us might be able to pop in.

    I checked the website but it's gone...

    oooft yeah the website must have gone down in the last couple of days. That's not a great sign

    the address is

    Studio Ten Online Marketing Ltd (parent company)
    152 - 160 City Road Kemp House
    London
    WC1V 2NP

    The weird thing is he was great to deal with and very friendly and straight forward. I didn't get dodgy vibes from him at all. If his instagram is to be believed he's still building watches and sending them out so not idea why I can't get through to him?

    You could try joining the Seiko Mods Facebook community and then asking this same question.

    Is he reading and ignoring your Instagram messages?

    Seems a bit odd.

    Address looks wrong. Are you able to verify?

    Comes up as two diff places and only one of which I would be able to pop into.

    sorry ignore the Studio 10 marketing part. Joot Co is listed at 160 City Road

    jameswrx - as far as I know theres no way to get read confirmation on instagram messenger if the recipient doesn't follow you?

    TaketheCannoli - thanks for the suggestion I'll give that a shot

    Start spamming his instagram posts with questions about where your watch is?

    I get updates from jootco as I followed it on Instagram. The link the OP posted at the top directed me to the same instagram account as mine and the last post by them was 22 hours ago so they look pretty active...

    That is one option. I'd much rather talk to the guy and not do this publicly tbh, never ends well from my experience

    Just post on his latest pic asking if heís read your DM about your jobs.

    Donít have to go mad, if he deletes it step things up then maybe.

    As an update to this thread I eventually got my watch after 8 weeks of pestering

    The work is horrendous, dial is marked and the hands are so bent that the watch won't even run. Avoid these guys like the plague
