Seiko SKX009 originally purchased for me by my wife @betsyboo in 2002.
It went with me on every deployment I did and it showed! So, after multiple emails back and forth with Jay from @motorcitywatchworks regarding what I wanted, I sent it off with some replacement parts and he did the magic.
Essentially a full rebuild with all parts save for the mov’t, crown, and stem coming from Dagaz: flat sapphire crystal, new 009 dial, new chapter ring, new bezel insert, and new hands.
I had the movement updated to a NH36A for hacking and hand-winding, which Jay regulated and it keeps time as well as my @resco_watches Kauffman’s top-grade ETA 2824 mov’t. The signed crown and stem are also OEM @seikowatchusa
Jay also gave the case a medium bead blast to remove a lot of the superficial scrapes. The true battle scars are still there and preserve this amazing watch’s character.
My hat’s off to Jay for his skill and ability to give this old warhorse a mid-life overhaul without erasing the life it’s lived.
The NATO is from @dalucastraps . I love NATO straps, and while DaLuca might be a bit pricey, they are simply the best.
Lastly, I know the @pepsi can is a little cheesy, but I don’t care because it’s a 90’s can and the 90’s were fuck’n awesome.
