    I found a used Black Monster at a watchsite for $100 and a military snk805 watch for $50. The BM was in ok condition with lots of scratches on the crystal. I found the military watch on evilbay. I decided to send them to Yobokies to get them modified. They're still in the air and I'm hoping they'll arrive soon. I'll post more pixes when I receive them. The price for mods is around $100 to $150 depending on what you wanted done. Here I asked him to change the hardlex crystals to sapphires, dials, and hands. Here's what he did to them.

    Looks awesome, great work. I love how the Seikos look with the day removed from the dial. I'm thinking about getting a SKX007 and getting it modified to date only.

    Thanks. If you're planning to get a 007 modified, you can find a used one for $100-130. I bought my 007 new and I don't have the nerve to modify it. It looks great the way it is but the 007 is a great platform for some awesome mods out there. I saw one that was modified like a Sinn. I can't find the picture.

    Nice mods. Harold is a great guy. Here's the Monster he did up for me, on his anvil bracelet:

    Wow! I wanted that dial but he ran out so I settled for the above. :)

    Yeah, that was from a few years ago. You'll have to report on how the lume is on his new dials. This one wasn't too bright ... which seems like a step back for a Monster, but I have an orange one if I ever really want super bright lume.
