A change around is coming

Post by SeikoJohn on Sat Jun 30 2018, 10:26

I have that urge to alter the appearance of a couple of watches again , unfortunately I am unable to do the changes now as I have 5 grandkids running riot around the house and garden.

Hopefully later today I will have peace and quiet in the house and will crack on with the alterations . Photos to follow.

I got thinking earlier that I own 3 Seiko 007's but all 3 had been modded so I did not actually own an original 007 ...... Well I do now

Before



After



Feels good knowing I have it back to it's original status

but now what to do with the Yellow Sumo dial ??

Simple answer really I put it into my Monster as I was not happy with the Seiko 5 dial I had in it







I also removed the rubber strap and replaced it for a 20mm Bracelet that arrived this morning from China , really great quality so good in fact I bought 3 Very Happy Very Happy

The Sumo Monster is a perfect summer watch with the nice yellow dial .

Thanks for looking

I take my proverbial hat of to you John, for tackling these modifications. I know what would happen if I tried. Shocked

Both watches look great and that yellow dial works really well in the Monster. I pondered whether the orange squiggle sweep second hand would have added another splash of colour but think the choices you made were better for that watch. Very Happy

Love the original on the leather, very nice, in real life what does the yellow look like, in some photos it looks lemony and on others it goes a shade darker ?

The dial can be a little hard to photograph but to my eye it looks like what I would call canary yellow.
This is a better photo I found from the web
