Custom SKX007 Built to Order
Seiko has a rich history when it comes to dive watches and their passion for perfection is what makes us all love these amazing automatic watches. The company revolutionized the dive watch business back in 1967, when Seiko introduced the company's first 300M dive watch — Reference 6215-010. While dive watches in the domestic Japanese market was very much a niche business, we're lucky today that the company recognized the growth potential of dive watches well before they became a staple of everyday wear for men and women around the globe.
Growing the Seiko Dive Watch Fan Base
We're glad Seiko stuck with it. The company introduced watch lovers to models like the 6105, which gained popularity in the 1970s. Collectors dubbed the 6105 the "Captain Willard" after the release of Apocalypse Now (Martin Sheen's character sported the 6105 on his wrist). From Apocalypse Now to Aliens to Commando, Predator and beyond — Seiko watches have saved the world several times over.
What is a "Seiko Mod"?
The cool kids have long known about Seiko's design history and durability as a functional tool watch. Now those cool kids are riffing off of the SKX007 platform by developing a huge range of compatible mod parts for SKX models. They range from aftermarket cases, hands, dials, bezels, bezel inserts and more -- many of which improve upon the factory original, like our NXTSKO SKX007 case that features drilled lugs to make swapping bands easy and scratch-free.
This ever-expanding "watch modding" community makes it possible for just about anyone with the desire to build or order a custom SKX007 dive watch built to their exact specifications. If you're not up to diving deep into horology yourself, you can always find a willing enthusiast to use this universe of high-quality components build you the watch of your dreams for just a few hundred dollars.
Let's Do This!
If you’re looking for something unique, you can buy a custom built SKX mod from Nextseiko. We will work together to create a watch just for you. Choose from a variety of case styles, bezels, bezel inserts, chapter rings and more. We invite you to message us on the site or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to answer any questions you may have. We're always happy to share our experience with other modders.
Because we stock and sell most of the popular Seiko-compatible mod parts in bulk, we pass along those savings to our customers. Importing our own cases, bezels, inserts, springs, case backs, etc. lets us maintain a sub-$350 price point for a custom, one-of-a-kind watch that actually outperforms the new Seiko 5 Sports models retailing for significantly more. We're guessing you'll want more than one of these bad boys once you get indoctrinated to the world of Seiko Mods!
You'll find we're flexible to work with regardless of your budget. Once you have an idea of what you're looking for, select a "base option" below and we will work to make that a reality within your budget. You can deviate from the base build you've purchased and upgrade any component part you like, from any vendor you choose.
