I had this made, from a guy on another forum. I loved it, the way the bezel and dial played with the light was cool. Then I grew bored, something was missing, it just didn’t play with the light the way I wanted it to.
I had a dial from Aliexpress, I like the Seiko Ginza so when Aliexpress made color dial versions I got several.
I used the charcoal one because I thought it went with the bezel best. I used black hands with orange for some color. I actually pulled the stem out, took the movement out, pulled the hands then the dial, put a new dial on and new hands, lined it up in the watch case, put the stem back in and the hands worked. I put the case back on and am wearing it. Took about an hour to an hour and a half.
I have been working with eta cases, movements and Seiko dials for a mod for about four months. Every step forward I make, I need to stop and order something new from Aliexpress to finish the job. The end is in sight for them around mid October I think. This dial and hands change was huge for me because I was actually able to complete a mod and it works. It boosted my confidence and keeps me going for the other mods that haven’t been going well.
After I finish my hodgepodge of various brands, case, hands and movement mods, I’ll stick to like brands, like eta dials for eta movements, hands and cases. The mish mash has been tough to figure tricks around.
