Modded one…

So i just finished the mod of my Seiko 5. It is awsome how just some little tweaks change the hole expe of the watch. 🙏 thank you #namoki for the bracelet, the fluted bezzel and the AR coated saphire! 👌👌👍 what do you think about this timepiece and modding in general? ✍️👇

That is one sweet design. this is modding done well.  

Modding is just another level of the hobby.  Most people won't ever work on their cars. Some will tinker here and there.  Some will create fibreglass homages.  Some will change the trim and rims.  Some will want to create funny cars completely out of the box.  Looks like you had a good time with this one.

Very nice. I have the Uncle Seiko Jubilee and it would be interesteing to comare the feel. Were you not tempted by a domed crystal?

It is very slightly domed indeed. I like domed crystals more on toolwatches like divers. This one for me is more on the classic side for me. So, it’s fine. 👍

Very nice indeed! I have the grey dial version  with the mat bezel which came on a grey nato. I have it on a Barton hybrid leather strap but I'm after a nice bracelet. That namoki bracelet looks as cool as!

It is indeed a very well done bracelet. Screwed links, milled clasp and solid endlinks. One negative for me: is a bit light, but it is a taste thing. Compared it with the  jubilee style bracelet from @watchgecko, that i got for my Tudor BB GMT it seems almost half the weight. On the other hand, that one is 22mm and of course the Seiko is a quite light watch as well… so it fits… 👍

I was considering the watch gecko one as an alternative funnily enough. Both get good reviews it seems

For the watchgecko bracelet you need a pretty hefty watch… 😉👍 Another point to consider is that the watchgecko one has hollow endlinks because it is a universal bracelet. but you can usi it without endlinks at all. 
 

PS: sorry for that rubbish scale! 😅

It looks like namoki then as the dress kx isn't a heavyweight!
