After 2 weeks of going over dials, hands, bezel inserts on Dagaz and Yobokies site, even had a buddy do a few photoshopped mock ups of what it would look like. I found a watch that already had the look I thought I'd love on bronze, from Loyswatch on eBay.

A Seiko 7002 mod



It cost me almost $57 less than my max bid and saved me even more in parts and labor.

Loyswatch seller was nice enough to ship it straight to my modder in Indonesia to save me even more $ and Time on shipping. It took 3 weeks to arrive but once he got it, he finished in just about a week and here it is.





Bronze Shroud, Bronze Bezel, Bronze Crown and Brass Bezel Insert.

It measures 48mm outside my comfort zone but everyone with smaller wrists that wear their big Tunas, tell me how comfy and sweet they were.

Already working on getting another loyswatch for a SS Tuna mod with different dial than shown here.


Now I just gotta stay vigilant on eBay while I hurry up and wait for my one of a kind Tuna.

Thanks for viewing.

Thanks a lot, everyone. I know I'll have a sweet adrenaline rush when I see that box here and open it.
I also bought a black insert with gold numerals to play around.

Yeah, boy oh boy Luis, this one's phenomenal !!! :thumb::thumb: Never have seen this look before that's for sure. ..You must be so happy right now because you know no one else is going to have this beauty. :) Can't get enough of the dial on it. Almost has a vintage look, and together with the case, and case finish takes to new futuristic levels. What a stunner Luis ! Nice find !!! ..Giant congrats to you !

Thanks a lot, everyone !
Very cool mod, I love how it turned out.
Is that a "TST"?

Kinda, not the same modder, this one is in Indonesia and costs a lot less. Next one will most likely be in SS with a Loyswatch grey piranha mod and he'll bleach out the black bezel to grey. Unless they post another navy blue dial with orange Dracula fangs and orange hands that I missed out on a few days back cus I was at work.

Thanks again, Tom!
I knew I had to get it when my buddy photoshopped the dial into the first and only bronze tuna I saw on FB. I initially wanted a green dial Tuna dial from Dagaz with gold hands and gold chapter ring but I couldn't resist buying this watch. Definitely agree with every word, very much vintage feel.

I never knew there was such a thing as a bronze Tuna.



Looks fabulous!!!!


Thanks a lot! I didn't either, until 5-6 weeks ago. I

Couldn't stop thinking about the possibilities for a while. Still can't. Got a bunch more in mind.

Update: now I have these 2 also coming. It's a 4 o'clock crown feast !

Don't mention it Luis. :thumb: That's a one of a kind there basically, and is going to turn more than a few heads that's for sure ! :eek:

What's neat too, is now you can enjoy this beauty, and still add that green dial Dagaz at some point down the road also. It's a win win Luis !!! ENJOY ! :):)
