Can anyone provide a good web site about the SKX007K that talks about disassembly, repair, customizing, etc. That fucker BlackHills and his pic of his 007 got me thinking about maybe playing with the one I bought from LJ a few years ago. I'd at least like to know how to remove the bezel and maybe open the case and try to regulate the accuracy a bit.

TIA

Bruce,

Aside from the Seiko Forums such as http://www.network54.com/Forum/78440/ , a search for 7S26 (the movement used in this watch) should uncover numerous hits that will be helpful. Guys who customize these include Randall Benson, Jack of IWW, Bill Yao, etc.

Sorry Bruce. :p The bezel comes off like a Rolex one, it just pops off. Put some tape over the lugs, slide a thin blade underneath and lift up.
