The SKX that began the passion that's since occupied much of my free time...
This timepiece started it's life as a humble SKX007, supplied brand new on a jangly jubilee metal bracelet. In the time it took for the watch to reach NZ, I had researched the exact design I wanted to build, and set about customising as soon as the watch reached him.
With a design & namesake based off the Rolex 116622, I set about building an affordable alternative that could very easily be an everyday piece yet still be unique with my personal touch.
The project: - Crystal upgrade to double dome sapphire with blue AR - Bezel insert swap to steel "Yachtmaster" - Second hand swap to painted red item with lumed lollipop, sword minute hand (OEM hour hand) - Sunburst blue dial from a PADI 7s26 - Oyster style 316L bracelet
