Modding Citizen divers

on Thu Sep 07 2017, 21:22
I know there's lots out there about modding Seiko divers but does anyone know if there's much of a market or interest in modding Citizens?

Cant say I have seen much on modding a citizen would be interesting to find out if it can be done.

Why do you have in mind ??

you are kind of restricted to what parts are availabe which is not many Crying or Very sad

some easy mods are replacing hands and crystals and there are some [not many] aftermarket dials designed for Chinese DG2813 movements that will fit most of the common auto Miyotas, but personaly i think the original Citizen dials are far better than any of the aftermarket ones...........
i guess it was like the old Betamax and VHS battle from years ago........this time Seiko won Very Happy

I was just thinking it's easier to get cheap Citizens rather than Seikos though didn't know if there was much scope for modding them. I've been looking out for old seiko divers in the hope of getting one modified to my own spec but it doesn't seem that easy because even non working ones go for quite a cost

seiko's are red hot at the moment and i dont see things changing any time soon.
what about buying just a case then al the bits to go with it?
you can buy an skx009 case complete for £89 + vat, all you would need is the movement dial and hands
i have done a few like this and usualy fit the NH36 movement which is an upgrade over the standard 7s26 and cheaper too
