    nice mods!

    how easy is it to replace the movement on the SKX line?
    thought about swapping one with a NH35 or NE15 but don't really care for hacking and winding but would be a nice experience to do.

    It's not hard to do if you're handy.

    The tough part is finding the SARB059 crown.
    You have to have it in order to do the swap, they are becoming extremely rare and overpriced since they are no longer made.

    tried replacing the hands on my Tiger-Concept 1016 and watch is of no good now (anyone want it as a spare/project for free?)
    1. Oyster cases are a PITA (returning the one opener that I bought from Amazon as it was still too small)
    2. Wasted almost 2 hours trying to install the second hand (both new and old) and couldn't get them it, managed to have one stay there for a few seconds then falls down

    might stick with Seiko for project watches from now on.
