7 Seiko mods

Post by koimaster » June 18th 2020, 10:08pm

Watch modification, or “modding”, is a remarkably popular subset of the watch collecting community, where enthusiasts will tinker with their watches to build totally customised pieces to wear. Without a doubt the most popular brand in the modding space is Seiko, where the combination of affordability and relatively widespread access to quality parts makes for the perfect storm of self-expression. There are even some members of the modding community who have turned their skills into micro-manufacturers, offering their services to fellow collectors for a fee, to build the watch of their dreams.

While most watches can be modified, the base watch of choice for many mods is the Seiko 5 collection or the Seiko SKX family. The diversity of references within the Seiko 5 and SKX collections, the affordability of each piece in case of catastrophic mistakes, and the robust build quality are all factors that make for the perfect creative canvas. That means the range of different Seiko mods you might see is almost unlimited, with different elements of the watch being changed to achieve a desired effect. With that in mind, let’s take a look at seven Seiko mods that have recently caught our – and many others – attention.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
