Arrow My "FAKE" SKX 007

I've been doing some modding the last few years. On Seikos only, so far.
I've done work on my Turtle & have 6 SKX 007 /009s on the go.


Pictured here is my "Fake" 007. I say fake because nothing about this watch is original to the SKX 007. Nothing. Case (with drilled lugs), caseback, movement (NH36), crystal, dial, handset, chapter ring, bracelet, all gaskets, bezel, bezel insert, crown, & even the crown stem are all from after market mod online suppliers. I was really expecting a disaster of sorts, but it turned out quite well - imo.

Not into mods but you did well Roarry. That razorwire bracelet goes nicely with the watch.
From Uncle Seiko?

Man oh man, it's more like "Fantastic" instead of "Fake" Roarry !

Incredible, just incredible sir !!! Can't believe how different you made
the watch look. Actually saw it earlier in WURW, and was blown away,
but had no idea that you were the one who built it. ..Wow, you became
a real watch maker, and artist in those few short years honestly.

What's so amazing is how every detail you changed, and every part
you used was perfect, and flows together to make an entirely new
watch, or animal !

Wow, and never heard, of a Razorwire bracelet either to be honest.
Hey there's a cool name for the watch right there...a Razorback 007 !

Just an extraordinary watch, and job Roarry !!! THX so much for
showing it to us, and telling us a little about it like this !

^^^ Thank-you Brian, & to all for your encouragement! I would never even have known about SKX007/009s if it weren't for WF.



I'll post pics as I complete them. I slow down in the summer when the classic cars come out. Hurry up spring!

Awesome looking piece. Full scale custom build. How's the time keeping and positional variance compared to a stock SKX? Better or worse and did you regulate it to get it that way? Very cool.

Thanks. It has a new NH36, so I'm going to run it 3 weeks & then regulate it myself with my Timegrapher 1000.

That's so cool. I'm curious whether things like the aftermarket crown or case affect movement stability inside the watch. Excellent work and thank you for the post. Still in the learning curve.

I've not noticed any discernable differences between the Seiko case, crown or stem from the afternarket. In some small ways. the latter is somewhat better. Things line up just right, without any play.
