Hi all seiko-ers,


The design that u have been waiting for are here!!!

Let me present to u the designs with all the parts description, for now we will go with choosing the dial and bezel first before we goes to the hands set.

We will finalize the dial,bezel,chapter ring then the hands set then finally whether how many members wants a full watch mods and how many members wants just the dial,bezel,chapter ring and hands set.

But to me to make this a forum watch I will suggest all to use the same watch which is SKX007 to make it uniform all across and looks more like a forum watch.

I dun wanna keep you all waiting.refer to each post and the description just in case the visual is not clear enough.

Now is the time to vote!!

Just leave ur name down for example option 1A - seiko Siao

I will collate and do a full list at the end of everyday and the closing day to vote is at 6th June 2012 2359hrs.

Thanks all for the vote and let's make this first forum watch happens...

Cheers.

First up is the dial, the supplier did 1 part wrongly which is the hour marker which should be in white instead of the patina colour. We will correct it for the final production.

next up will be the bezel,custom SUS hands set and the nato strap.

below are the photos for the smooth bezel.

Custom SUS hands set, the supplier did something wrongly down here as the hour and min hand should not have chrome outl;ine and should be all white, the supplier knows about this and we will correct it for final production.

lastly will be the nato strap that we will be using.

thanks all for the wait, pardon me for the lousy quality of the photos as it is taken with a samsung galaxy note.

Will send confirmation for final production by next Monday and if you happen to have any concerns and etc, kindly let us know and we will try to address it.

Thank you very much all and let's look forward to a 1st Seiko Club Forum Watch. Without the support from the 30 SEIKO WARRIOR :roll: :roll: , this will never happens.
