Marc had been offering multiple mods for the SKX series. Guess this was the next step with the SKX being discontinued. Hope it does well for him.

They seem okay. At least if you were to buy one, you'd know that if there's a problem it will be attended to with professionalism, and right away - that goes a long way with me. Marc's one of the handful of watch guys in my area I trust without hesitation.

They surpassed their goal on kickstarter. Pricing is not too out of line for a watch with a SW-200-1 ‘elaboré’ grade movement & sapphire crystal.

NYCFixie over at Velocipedesalon.com has a NIB Islander watch that he bought. Also some modded watches. I bought a Seiko dive watch from him and the transaction was smooth and easy. Shipped it out quickly and well packaged.

Nice enough watches, but if you already have an SKX these seem pointless to me.
Yup.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.
