SOLD: Seiko 5 SNZH57 "Black Bay" (seeking seiko modders)Posted by Guzmannosaurus in forums.watchuseek.com
For sale Seiko 5 SNZH57 with Dagaz Tudor Black Bay mods.
I had this modded over a year ago and all was well when I received it. After I didn't wear it for a while, when I went to wind it and set the time I noticed that the hands were slightly misaligned (see pics) and after leaving it on my watch winder it didn't hold a charge. From what I can tell, the rotor appears "tight" or "stiff" and thus it barely winds.
I'm no modder so I'm putting this up for sale specifically targeting you Seiko modders out there - perhaps you can use it as parts or fix it and keep it or re-flip it. The watch is in good shape, no scratches on the crystal and the only case scratches are on the back near the lugs due to strap changes
In terms of price, I just want to recoup the cost of the dagaz parts which include the red bezel, dial, and snowflake handset.

The company was founded in 1881, when Kintarō Hattori opened a watch and jewelry shop called "K. Hattori" (服部時計店 Hattori Tokeiten?) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan. Eleven years later, in 1892, he began to produce clocks under the name Seikosha (精工舎 Seikōsha?), meaning roughly "House of Exquisite Workmanship". According to Seiko's official company history, titled "A Journey In Time: The Remarkable Story of Seiko" (2003), Seiko is a Japanese word meaning "exquisite" or "success" ("exquisite" is usually written 精巧 from Chinese jīngqiǎo, while the meaning "success" is usually written 成功 from Chinese chénggōng).
Seiko is perhaps best known for its wristwatches, all of which were at one time produced entirely in-house. This includes not only major items such as microgears, motors, hands, crystal oscillators, batteries, sensors, LCDs but also minor items such as the oils used in lubricating the watches and the luminous compounds used on the hands and the dials.
