Sourcing parts to mod a Seiko 7002

on Mon Jun 12 2017, 14:12
I came across this Seiko 007 mod last year and saved the photo on my laptop as I just really like the watch . The dial reminds me of a Seiko spork or a Sinn the splash of colour n the chapter ring and second hand just finishes the watch off IMO



Anyhow as I do not have a 007 in which to mod I have come up with the plan of possibly modding the 7002 I bought from Iceblue

I have seen that Dragonshroud sell the Chapter ring for $15

https://www.dragonshroud.com/product-page/yellow-7002-chapter-ring

As I plan on changing my Invicta ( yes again I hear you say ) I can use the hour and minute hand from that all I need to do is source a yellow secondhand or possibly spray paint one myself but will need to research how to do that as the only thing I have sprayed in the past is an old Mondeo MK2 bumper



Lastly I need to source a dial that fits the 7002 I have seen a few for the 7s26 but they do not fit  Sad

Anyhow this is my current plan of action I will add to this thread as and when I have more information.

i think the dial will be an issue.as the dial feet are all wrong for 7s26 dials and vice versa, there are chinese sellers that do 7002 after market dial, but they are not the greatest quality, yobokies and dagaz dont do them as far as i am aware.....so i think you are going to struggle Crying or Very sad

I am a member of Seiko mods on Facebook and have put a little post on it asking if any members know where to source the dial from . lets hope someone knows Very Happy

i think your best bet is to watch out on ebay as you do get the coloured after market ones on there, i havent checked, but there may be some if you search for seiko dial rather than seiko 7002 you should get a better result

Re: Sourcing parts to mod a Seiko 7002

I sent a email to Harold (Yobokies) asking if he sold the dials for 7002 here is his reply

""I have the dial made for 7S only but you can cut the dial feet and use adhesive to install on your 7002""  This may be the way to go to get the watch looking how I want it to .

Quick question though

My 7002 has a date window at 3oclock



I have found two dials one with date window at 4 oclock and without date window





Would the date window at 4 still line up properly and / or / would I be better getting one without date window if I am connecting the dia with dial dots / adhesive tape .

your other option would be to change the movement to the 7s26 which fits the 7002 your whole world opens up then, i wouldnt recomend cutting dial feet off, its never succesfull IMO anfd date windows are dictated by dial feet so unless you cut them off you will have date problems
