    Seiko Solar Tuna Mod

    The watch Seiko should have made (IMHO)






    • Yobokies Stainless shroud
    • Domed crystal (Tempus watch mods)
    • Watch Gecko Bracelet


    If only I could source a ceramic bezel insert...

    That looks great. Where did you get the shroud from? I have a hankering after a tuna, it's been a while.

    Thanks.
    The shroud is from Yobokies - but I bought it from SC with it already fitted.

    That is definitely how Seiko should have made it in the first place.

    That crystal looks perfect. I might try a seconds hand with the ball on the other end, like on a SKX173, if I get one of these to mod.

    Nice job but to be fair to Seiko if that’s how it ‘should have come’ it wouldn’t be the budget tuna that you can pick up around £200. There’s plenty of nice quality tunas but they’re a lot of money so I don’t begrudge them making it as they did.

    I'm not into mods but this one looks very nice!
