As some of you know, I have been thinking about buying a modified Seiko for a while now. A few weeks back, I decided to go for it and contacted Harold at Yobokies. I received it the other day and could not be happier with the results!

The watch started out as a SKX007 and it was modified to include:

Yobokies black dial, white pilot style hands, red/orange second hand, aluminum chapter ring, rubber Z22 strap (Harold also gave me a back NATO) and a clear caseback. I decided to keep the case and bezel stock for now.

I am trying out a few straps right now. As you can see from the picture, I swapped out the Z22 rubber out for a "Kevlar" dive strap. I will also be trying out a Bond Zulu and have ordered a "Vintage Waffle" rubber strap from Jake B to try as well (I think that will be the best look)...

Like I said, I love the look of this one, but may tweak it in the future. Once the polished sides get scratched, I will probably have the case bushed or bead blasted (crown too).

Here are some pictures:
