Seiko, with its modular design and vast array of parts, has emerged as a favorite amongst the watch modding community. From bezels to dial and hands, let’s dive into the most popular Seiko modding parts that enthusiasts are swapping out to create their unique timepiece.
Dials [Shop Here]
The dial is the face of your watch and thus offers a significant scope for personalization. Popular options range from minimalist to intricately designed dials, including sunburst, textured, and even those with unique prints. Swapping out the stock dial with a custom one can significantly change the character of your watch.
Bezels and Bezel Inserts
The bezel is another popular component for modding, affecting both the watch’s appearance and functionality. Divers, for example, might opt for a countdown or elapsed time bezel. Bezels can be customized further using inserts, which come in a variety of materials like aluminum, ceramic, or even sapphire. Bezels: [Shop Here], Inserts: [Shop Here]
Hands [Shop Here]
The hands are not just functional components but also define a watch’s style. There’s a world of possibilities out there, from sword and Mercedes to dauphine and cathedral hands, among others. Lume-filled hands are a common choice for those who value legibility in low light conditions.
Sapphire Crystals [Shop Here]
Swapping out the stock crystal for an upgraded one, like a double domed sapphire crystal, is a popular mod. A sapphire crystal is more scratch-resistant than the standard mineral crystal, while a domed crystal adds a vintage look and interesting light play on the dial. The options are flat, single dome, double dome, top hat and more depending on your preference!
Chapter Rings [Shop Here]
Chapter rings add another layer of depth to your watch dial. Modders often choose to replace the stock chapter ring with a custom one that matches or contrasts their chosen dial, bezel, or hands. This simple change can make a big impact on the overall look of the watch.
Cases and Case Backs
The case of a watch dictates its overall shape and size, and the case back can be a canvas for personal expression. While cases are often left as-is, some modders opt to change them for a different size or finish. We do have a large collection of cases with a range of colours and finishes. Cases: [Shop Here]
Engraved or exhibition case backs are popular among those who want to showcase their movement. There are also a range of finishes and anti-reflective coating colours on the display case backs which gives it a nice tint of colour. Case Backs: [Shop Here]
Straps and Bracelets [Shop Here]
Last but not least, straps and bracelets are among the easiest parts to swap out and can drastically change the look and feel of a watch. Choices range from stainless steel bracelets to leather straps, NATO straps, rubber straps, and more, each offering a different style and comfort level.
Seiko watch modding is an exciting journey of customization. With the plethora of parts available, you can change your watch’s appearance, functionality, and style, making your Seiko uniquely yours. Whether you’re a seasoned modder or just starting out, the possibilities are endless.
