      From time to time some of the sellers have milgauss style bezels but I haven’t found any dress cases. That said. Pretty much all the seikos use the n15/35/36 as the base. Just need to make sure the dial is of the 28.5m variety.

      I hate to link to reddit, but this list of mods have hit my daily rotation of visits. Some of the providers have really cool stuff

        Thank you for the helpful info and the link. Even tho most of the mods are on the SKX and related diver models, there are a few dress seiko’ s that have been modified that look good.

            Whoa congrats! It’s great when a custom build comes out when it looks like Seiko could have built it! Stunning piece, enjoy!

                Yeah that’s too much. His labor is about 30% more than others. I bought all parts separately myself, and a solid builder in SoCal assembled it for $158 for the complete build.

                if you know what exactly you want the piece to look like I can search around for the parts and send you a list

                  I tried the direction of reddit but not coming up with dials for NH36 movement. I tried to prise some information from a mod seller on ebay and he states that he gets his supply direct from a factory but only bulk 100 units. He won't give up the factory or the location. I just keep coming up to closed doors.

                    Any SKX/5KX dial works with the NH36. Of course the NH36 is day/date. Attach a pic of what dial you’re looking for and I’ll look around

                        Hey man thanks a lot, was looking to get something like that watch Eric posted or a bronze one. Do you know if there are gmt movements that would fit the skx case?

                          I’ll search around and put a list together. Check out the CT711 full bronze case from crystal times in the meantime.

                          As of now there aren’t any gmt movements that fit SKX cases. Recently modders have been buying homage watches, like a Parnis or Pagani, and changing the dial to a Seiko. Not sure what exactly is involved but it might be an option if you definitely want a GMT.

                          There’s a Seiko Mod Facebook page and members are big into the homage pieces. You should also sign up and ask questions there

                            I love each dial on this page. I’m having a hard time deciding between three

                            Ive seen the first one in person and it’s incredible.

                              I actually calculated how much it would cost to buy all the parts ant it's around 620 USD. He is overcharging but not too much when you take into account he come up with the mod and his work.
                              Anyway I think I might give a go and build it myself if I have questions about oils, tools where to source parts and such I'll ask you.

                                That’s great! The specific dial he used is hard to find and pricey. If you’re in the US, I’d recommend Four Forty Four PM for the build. He’s in SoCal, built time is quick and the cost is very reasonable. Have fun!
