- Modded Seiko divers…
Pmmm not built yet, bezel on the way from yobokies. Stargate pmmm look pretty good, with addition of the bezel, the case lines look right. I’m leaving the crown and adding sea urchin hands so it’s not a blatant copy (plus sea urchin hands are better than mm300 in my eyes). Piccies up tonight.Posted 2 years agoCountZeroMember
Second one is far nicer to my eyes, looks very similar to a genuine seiko diver that countzero has posted before
It is indeed, it’s a copy of my SPORK, A short-lived model which a lot of people rather seem to like.
And which I’m wearing at the moment, my Yema Rallygraf having gone for a mainspring repair, which will probably cost a fair bit to fix… 😐

Design classic, for sure. A bit like anything really. One man’s “gopping” is another’s “gorgeous”.
(I’ve got a “classic” looking Citizen diver, plain old black but the crown stem has broken. Got quoted $140 to fix, clean and pressure test it. A new one is less than $100!). Found another place that will repair it for $25 but wifey keeps forgetting to take it in!Posted 2 years agoninfanMember
This may be the best place to ask, since the thread has popped up about seiko’s, but any advice on the best place to sell this and what it might be worth?
I got it new in ’97, It’s been sitting in a drawer for several years, battery went flat and was taken out to find a new one, but I just never got round to it. I understand there’s a bit of a market for these ones (even more so for the Issued ones) so any advice greatfully received.

No, genuinely wasn’t, I just had no idea – however theres this one being sold on the other place that is a non runner, so that should give me an idea of what its worth:
I’m going to nip in and get a battery fitted later this week, so then I will at least know if its running/accurate and have an idea what to ask for it.Posted 2 years ago
