40mm Seiko/Sub Skull build complete!

Post by blueradish »

Just finished up this badass build. Incredible dial by our own @norskguru88 Dial is thicker than most so I had to order a new tall H5 Swiss CP/HW as there are no asians available. This potentially posed an issue with fitment. After installing both the only difference is that it winds and sets a little more firm than with the asian parts in there. I did not replace the seconds pin as warned by @unreformed66 This ended up being a happy accident as I'm not a fan of large sweeping seconds, so the new H5's hide the old H2 perfectly such that I could just leave it in place. Thanks to @Tanukjaju for forwarding the parts.

Amazing build looks like a special edition!
"Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."
