Post skx031 mod - 62Mas
The desire to have 6217 is a bit tough to fullfil due to rarity of the watch and super high price,
so i decide to do mod.

It take me by surprise when i google amd found people out there has made 62Mas inspired implanted/mod in their skx031.
So i begin to search for used skx031
Not a very long search till i found one for a very very cheap price. :lol: ... under US$50 can you believe it :lol:



start by striping down: cleaning all the detail, overhaul the 7s26 movement
and a 4R36 movement poses in this picture :D


Image





continue with re-polishing the case and trimming the crown guard (picture taken as the process is still continue)


Image




list of the parts for this project:
- used skx031 from local source
- 62mas AM dial
- 62mas AM handset
- 62 mas AM insert
- waffle tropical rubber strap
- SDF spring loaded bar
- skx007 crown
- sapphire crystal to highlite the beauty with blue or green AR coating... still undecidable
- 7s26 or 4R36 movement...still undecidable

overall is a very cheap mod in comparison to all my italian homage build :lol:

Managing to get rid all of the bruises on the case + trimming the crown guard and recreate the bevel


struggling to pull out the crown tube but no luck so far...
It is so difficult to finish the CG shaving without damaging the tube :(



anyway, here is little polishing

Will work to smoothing all the surface more later

Really clean, nice job, did you find the right bezel insert? I believe the insert offer for the SKX031 is poor.

Thnx n nope
I bought from the Phillipines and i had to return it since the trimming quality is bad.

Bought another one from yobokies as it was recomended on the other forum... but it is 1mm smaller :(

I decided to diy it. Hopefully it came out nice

Post Re: skx031 mod - 62Mas
since i couldnt get the perfect fit 62mas insert for this skx031 (i bought 2 pieces from different source previously), so i decided to custom DIY it.

And that is the closer of my SKX031-MAS :)

The crown is from a SKX007? No modifications? Did you change the tube?
