Changing the strap/bracelet is quite significant, but often it’s not enough to get there. Many people even want to modify the look of their watch by replacing parts such as dial, clockwork, insert bezel, etc., even including their movement, and they may rarely do the intricate modification types alone, due to they don’t want to damage their watch, and so they ask the experts in the trusted watch stores instead.
For this one, it may be more difficult to apply to various types of watches from various brands, but among modifiers, there is one brand that routinely becomes the canvas of their idea spill: Seiko, especially the type SKX007 and the Seiko 5 family because each part can replace with each other. In modifications like this, inspiration can appear in the original as well as from other iconic hours.
Take for example Seiko 5 SNZH53, SNZH55 and SNZH57, these clock types are often modified following the Omega Planet Ocean, or more often, based on Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. The results of the modifications that we can see for example in this article header are often named after their type names, Fifty-Five Fathoms. Although it may be affected by iconic hours, often the modifiers do not randomly copy the details of these clocks to resemble replica clocks. The modifiers still leave special characteristics on their modified watches.
