Looks like a Seiko Dagaz mod to me.

I just put a NH36A movement in an old SKX031 and added a set of mercedes hands.

My other Seiko project was to put a Dagaz dial and hands into an $80 Invicta diver- now I have a $170 diver! I really like the NH35A movement in those Invictas these days

Sorry for the bad pic

Yep dagaz/Yobokies it is. I finished an orange one, but the next has the nh36 movement and the hands WOULD NOT go on. Gawd, that’s frustrating.

Yeah, it depends if you’re squinting looking through your right eye, or your left. Apparently I was using the wrong one!

Guys w/ hands as large as ours should not be working on watches! LOL

PS you mean you need to be able to see small things I'm out , tried w/ two pairs of glasses still fuc*ed it up! I even have the jeweler head gear w/ round magnifier that comes down and a light, again no joy......................

Yeah what’s with that? By the time you get old enough to afford nice watches, your eyesight goes and you can’t SEE the things!

Yeah I pushed too hard and smashed that hours hand down so far it wouldn't turn then I had to get it back off.  Tweezers?  Nope.  Hemostats?  Not on your life.  Pick it up with an xacto knife?  Dream on.  Give me the damn channel-locks.

 

It came off.  And I broke the weak-ass pansy fricken cheap wussy miniature godforsaken stinking stem inside the crown.

:blowup:

Next time I need to take a Seiko apart I'm using a different set of tools.  I'm done "persuading" things to come apart.

Noooooo. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the International Seismological Centre recorded that howl of agony.

Oh that wasn’t a howl of agony, that was the movement whistling as it re-entered the atmosphere.

Anyone got a link for Seiko movements?
