Seiko Black Bay mod

Something I’m asked to do occasionally is to modify a watch or “mod” it as this is known. The donor watches are usually Seikos as there is a huge amount of custom parts available for many different models. The watch featured here is a Seiko SXK009 and the parts to be fitted will turn it into a Tudor Black Bay homage. The parts needed to accomplish this are a snowflake handset, a dial, an insert, a polished rehaut or chapter ring and a sapphire crystal was also fitted although not strictly necessary.
