Vintage-ized the lume on the dial and hands, put a bubble domed sapphire in it and clicked on an old bezel with 007 insert. Why? Simply because I can😎

Seiko mods in space!
.
Shown is a Seiko SKX007 mod, built by Dave Sutton, for astronaut @astro_maker Scott “Maker” Tingle.
.
In addition to the Seiko base watch, Dave used a custom dial and caseback, produced by Dagaz Watch. Hands, and the “superdome” crystal/crystal gasket/bezel insert also from the Dagaz shop. Bezel is the @murphy_mfg SE2050, made in Fairport, NY, USA.
.
In addition, Dave upgraded the movement to the hacking and hand-winding Seiko/SII NH35a.

Also, shown on @erikasoriginals MN strap.

The story from Dave Sutton:
.
The watch was not ready in time for Flight Engineer Tingle’s launch into orbit. The watch was included in Tingle’s personal items, and delivered to the ISS by SpaceX resupply mission. Tingle wore the watch for the remainder of his mission, and returned to earth via Soyuz vehicle.

I’m quite proud to have had a small part in this build.

An old shot of the SKX x Sumo mod. Searched a year for that dial, built the watch in an hour and wore it one whole day 🤦🏻‍♂️ - SKX007
- SKX011 chapter ring
- SBDC005 dial & hands
- @crystaltimeshorology's flat sapphire
- @strapcode's Super Jubilee bracelet

That's one of my old Seiko SKX171 mods, which I pimped a couple days ago. It was sold to a close friend and he thought, some other hands would be better (than the SKX-standard hands) - I chose #yobokies extra long samurai hands and they fit like a glove. Their polished surface works great along the indices which look the same and they glow exactly the same color :)

Made it out to San Francisco for some training at the Pride Institute, what a great time! The weather was amazing, I got In & Out, got a free upgrade for my rental (18’ Mustang GT!) and saw some sites! I def should have spent some a couple more days out there 😪... (p.s wrist check: gotta go with the SKX mod!) #sanfrancisco #prideinstitute #goldengatebridge #palaceoffinearts #mustanggt #inandoutburger #skxmod #skx007
