changed my mind yet again

Post by SeikoJohn on Thu Dec 07 2017, 19:55

I was all set to buy myself another Invicta to mod . I had selected the correct model and spent days searching the internet looking at ideas and decided what dial and hands I wanted with lots of pm's going to and from between myself and Domecub with me seeking advice and then I go and do a full 180 turn around and bought this from ebay



I look at it as an upgrade from the Invicta

Will it be stopping as a SKX007  scratch  nope it will be getting modded  lol!  lol!

Happy Days

wise purchase, keep all the original parts and you will never lose money on it

That looks pretty smart as it is, apart from possibly the sweep second hand if I was being picky, so will be interesting to see how it all works out. Very Happy

Definitely changing the handset to some different ones .

Not entirely sure what design I want yet I do have one or two ideas so plan on spending the night looking

I am open to suggestions from forum members for ideas on how to change the appearance of the watch including dial hands and bezel insert . cheers guys

My Birthday watch arrived today I put it straight onto a strap and away she goes .



The Mineral needs changing as it has rather a lot of scratches and I have ordered a Dial from Yobokies and a new set of hands from Cousins , I will not reveal them just yet but I think some of you on here may like the finished result .
