Finally got my hand on a seiko skx and can’t wait to fit it with different straps!
is it fit perfectly?
Hello, do you mean the movement?
yes, movement to the case. do the case need modification?
No you do not need a new case mine is the original skx013 case. However, you’ll have to change the stem that already comes with the movement and do some adjustments.
The day/date disc wheel in the replacement movement will be positioned for a watch with a crown at 3 o’clock, so it will not align with the skx case which has a crown at 4 o’clock. The easiest way to get around this is to remove the original day and date wheels from the original movement (7s26) and fit them to the new movement.
