    Seiko Mod


    I’ve always been into Seikos and the past couple of years. Over the last couple of years I’ve been buyIng, modding snd selling custom pieces. Here are some examples of completed and sold pieces over the past year.

    My most recent build and this is a keeper. Every part has been picked individually and it came out perfect. Check out the lume!

        The purple ar coating looks incredible in person.

        There are a handful of good and reliable sellers of the custom parts and most watchmakers should be able to swap parts. If you’d like more info on building one let me know.

                    Just out of curiosity how much do you think that the mod from the video would cost?

                      Overall parts and labor it should be around $700 USD. Seems kind of pricey for a Seiko but well worth it for a unique piece that you can be proud of.

                      For reference, the stainless steel black face Seiko pictured above I had build was $750 USD parts and labor.

                        Hmmm I might write him then to make me one, truly beautiful watch and unique. I didn't know about the Seiko mod community but seems quite big and there are some cool pieces out there. The one you made is also ace BTW

                          Yes it’s a huge and very helpful community. Not sure if I can recommend a Facebook page on here but every possible question you have can get answered in minutes. Thanks for the compliment!

                            It really doesn’t take much to start the seiko hobby. It how I spend my rep dollars these days.
                            putting the seiko parts together is really fun and easy since all the parts are made for a very specific tolerances. This sites listed are the main ones. Ajuicenet is in the us and there are others. It’s a good time.

                              It’s amazing how well some Seikos fit in high end collections. Also great that a full set of tools to completely modify the watch is about $60.

                              I’ll check out that ajuicenet
