Other mods

  • Rolex or other high-end brand watches can be modded, but will be at a higher cost.


*PLEASE make sure your parts are correct and of good quality for your watch, as the labor rate will be charged regardless of whether or not the parts you provide are able to be installed, or if you do not like the resulting effects. We will reassemble your watch to the original condition if possible for an additional fee, to be determined at the time of service.

** Please be aware that Seiko homage watches (Proxima, Steeldive, San Martin, etc.) may not work with Seiko mod pieces. There may be no difference from the outside, but please trust us when we say there are differences on the inside, or as Hemingway once wrote, "A Seiko-shaped case does not a Seiko make. And so the watch pulled the old man further out into the sea."

Sometimes these mods can be done while you wait, depending on the general level of chaos in the store at the time you come in.
