Interesting seiko

Post by calvinktlim » October 30th, 2019, 11:18 am

I am interested in building something like this. Anyone know where i can get this case (probably a rep submariner case, do they sell it separately), dial, hands and how i can fit a seiko movement inside. Image

Maybe a Seiko 5 with a replacement crystal?

That picture is definitely from a rep case with a Seiko dial (maybe the movement is not even a Seiko)

You can check "nh35 watch" on AliExpress or Alibaba.
Or maybe an Invicta also with nh35 movement.
This mvt is compatible with the Seiko mods world...
On the Invicta you will have to remove the engraved logo on the side...and choose a version with the nh35.

You should find the hands with yokibies or dagaz. The dial aftermarket

Im sure this is a sub rep with a seiko dial... Now as for hands, either actual seiko aftermarket hands broached to fit the asian eta inside the rep... Or in my mind, a more legit way would be to somehow make a movememt holder (or are such things available on the market) to convert a case intended for an eta or 3135 clone to a seiko movement.

This watch made MrThompsonr. I saw his photo of this watch on the WUS. Try to contact him for details here or on the WUS. I think he can help you.
