Stock Seiko 7002 to modded doxa homage

Post by Iceblue on Sat Apr 15 2017, 13:24

So I sold a Seiko 7002 to John and shortly after I wanted to do a Seiko homage to a watch I was unsure what mod I wanted to do and started browsing the usual modding web sites

First of all I needed to source another 7002 and I did manage to source one and after a few weeks of looking and asking members opinions I made my decision , this is what the Seiko looked like before the mod a genuine Seiko stock 7002



After a few email I decided on a doxa homage to the great watch and something you don't really see that offer modded so when the postman arrived with the parts the fun began

Bezel replaced with a coin edge bezel
Bezel insert replaced with a doxa type insert
Hands replaced with doxa style hands
And dial replaced with doxa type dial

I may change the chapter ring at some point unsure yet , puts far this is the finished result and I mast admit I have over the moon with the transformation

Say hello to my Seiko doxa homage

That looks really good you must be extremely happy with the finished result . As for the chapter ring I quite like it as it gives an illusion of depth to the dial.

Well done great job you just need some sun now to wear it

It looks like a really good mod. I don't normally go for orange though I prefer this to a planet ocean. It looks perfect on the steel bracelet in my opinion, I'd be keeping it on a bracelet personally.
