Thanks!

I have a good contact to a german dial factory.
The factory build a Cliché with my name and print it on every dial I send them.

Thanks again, guys.

If someone is interested in any form of dial prints, let me know!
I can share my contact, no problem!

It´s not really expensive and worldwide shipping will be offered.

Maybe some of you will know my contact. It´s Roland Kemmner!
Mr. Kemmner also sell his own watches, like the Octupus.

BTW: Hope you´ll understand my English. Im sorry, but I´m not a native speaker!

Very cool looking watches! I have a question as I am new to Seiko watches. Can someone explain to me the concept or reason behind "modding"?

I don't think I've seen this with other brands.

Cheers!

I think there is no good reason to do this. I like it to create my own style watches.

In my opinion it´s very simple to mod the SEIKO watches and there´s a lot of afermarket parts out there!

What he said,
Also, so many hands and dials fit so many movements within Seiko's..... they are just easier to mod.

Thank you and this is great to know. I dealt with Roland before and he is great, his watches are also really nice quality.

I think that there are different opinions and different needs because of the difference between people. The fact is that sometimes it is not easy to find the watch one is dreaming of. In some cases a watch might be just about right but have something one would like changed, like the hands, or one hand, or the strap or whatever. Personally I only do it to make the watch "my own" and as close as possible as I would like it to be.

Seiko watches are great because of the interchangeability of the parts, dials, hands, cases, etc. but there surely are other watches one can customize. I personally have done a few others non Seiko, see below:
