Newly in today.  I think I will keep them just the way they are for now.

I don't think I'll spend  on a bracelet.  Especially since I don't even know if I'll wear the watch.  I have a ton of jubys laying around.

Looking good Rich. I found that limited edition Citizen out of Singapore for $189. Cheapest eBay seller is $246. I looked at all 3 variants. Hard to choose. Got another SKX013 today and the SKX009 yesterday for modding. But my favorite of all.....

SEIKO SRPC41j1 Prospex PADI mini-turtle

There are simply no pictures that do this watch justice.....especially not mine. What a watch. I strangely want to put it on a bracelet. Can't explain why...makes not sense for this diver.

Nice, but I could never wear something that had PADI on it.  :lol:

You can't just have a ceramic bezel, you have to get a double domed sapphire as well.

You go for the bracelet sister! Would look excellent and I mean that most sincerely folks.

I feel I have to caveat your purchasing with an intervention style statement ..... ‘you gotta freakin’ problem my friend and as soon as you’re ready to ask for help and admit you’re powerless over watches and that your horology has become unmanageable, then rooms of Watch Anonymous are there for you’.

LOL. All good and thanks for the support-group comments. So far I’ve been able to buy/sell without penalty overall, so the net cost to date equals the value of the inventory I own. It may not always be, but today that’s true.

Shipped Tuesday, arrived today, Thursday. Gotta love a seller in the Philippines that uses FedEx. No surprises........unless you're surprised by sellers doing what they say they will. I'm seriously in danger of ordering 15 of these buggers. 

First of all.....I LOVE FREE tupperware! Great way to ship! To recap:

All cleaned and regulated. All cases and crystals buffed and they show it. On the modded versions - New dial, chapter ring, new hands (all 3), new bezel insert and new crowns. Already ordered a new bracelet for the black monster, just need to get it mounted.

A little cap cod, stripped off the black paint on the bezel and a new bracelet. Yup, definitely feels better on the bracelet. Feels very similar to the Panerai Luminor bracelet. $44 on Walmart.com and well worth it.

Hi guys, new here. But in the Seiko modding game for a year already. SKX031/33 is one of my favorite Seikos. Still don't understand why they stop producing this. Aside from the wide 22mm lugs, this fits me nicely.

My SKX033 with custom sea snake skin straps. 20-ish years old and fourth owner but yet unopened case

The SKX and SNZH models are great base watches to mod.

I'm a NAUI certified instructor, thats why I would not wear that watch advertising another agency.  :lol:
