    Taking the plunge and building a custom diver...SKX

    So I was looking to just change the hands and bezel on my SNE435p1 and not finding what I needed, Im deciding to do a complete custom build based off the SKX. Never did it before but had success with this transplant which I documented last year.

    https://watchintyme.com/showthread.p...r-7T92-project

    Basically Im ordering all the parts separately....purchasing the tools needed so I will be able to build any color combo I want. As parts come in Ill post photos. Maybe later start with the stock pics for you to see. I have no idea how long it will take, hopefully 2 weeks since I have to buy everything and have it shipped...many parts are coming from over seas and I haven't ordered everything I need for the watch itself.

    Wish me luck!

    Cool! Please post as many photos as you can of your custom build.

    Also, take it slow and easy. This isn't a race!

    Here are screenshots of the parts ordered so far
    .....I got 2 sets of hands...Ill see which I like best. Im going for a brushed matte finish with just a few pieces adding some shine...the red hands and crown give some color contrast with the red.
