Get a Seiko turtle or mini turtle and do a Yobokies dial, hands and bezel mod. He has this color.

Here are a sample of Soxa mods, some are the teal blue.

That's an idea for sure. I was looking as some SOXA mods for ideas the other day wondering if that would cure my lust as well. It's pretty hard to find the Doxa parts to do the mod (Bezel and chapter ring) Thanks.

I like Yobokies because they are built better, Dagaz’s bezels are just a sticker that scrapes and peels easy.
Here is my Zimbe mini turtle that I modded with a Yobokies bezel, not just the bezel insert, I did the whole bezel swap.

Might I suggest:

Image

The Seiko Ice Diver- I know you have a current cobb up your ass for Seiko due to the prices, but I like this one a lot- exclusive to the US, Sumo 44mm case, the nice 3 link bracelet with diver extension, Caliber 6R35, with a 70-hour power reserve; SPB179. Reasonably priced at a time they've gone nuts.

Available here https://mrjewelersonline.com/products/s ... gLtn_D_BwE for South of a grand.

I've seen that exact model around the interwebz lately and I must say it's gorgeous. Must be my favorite color combo and the new waffle dials by Seiko are freakin killer.

And a real rarity in Seiko- Half the price of a poseur jobber watch.

Very tempting, thanks Alian, but I'm just not into Orange dials that much. Someone should snap this up though from Lords, that's a great deal.

I'm definite it's the case shape and layout that has me wanting for this style. Today, I run across this and start drooling again.

Amazon has a version under 400

Not sure of the lug width... Some sites claim it is 20 others 22 mm....20 might make it top heavy


I have a cushion case Swiss movement for sale too

Seiko Turtle, easy choice.

https://www.shoppinginjapan.net/prospex-sbdc033
Was looking into some JDM alternatives to the Ice Diver- shopping in japan has banners up that say they are closed 'for the new year holiday' and won't be shipping anything until 11/1/21 which I figured was a typo, however, they have not responded to emails and do appear closed. Don't order without confirming they're open and shipping unless you want to tie up your money for a year.

The rest of the civilized world does the dates as day/month/year. Makes no sense to me but that's our 1/11/2021
