Seiko SARB009J One Of A Kind Field Watch Mod $310

A catch and release for me.

This is a SARB009J, Japanese domestic market model that’s been discontinued by Seiko.

It started life as a regular SARB009J. The original owner had the Seiko OEM dial professional lly removed and replaced with a dark blue dial from a Seiko SRP707. The hand set is the original SARG009 hand set.

The work was professionally done by Artifice Horoworks, one of the most respected shops for doing dial swaps for Seiko automatics. In very good shape, some very minor scratches on the lug backs from strap changes. Sapphire crystal and case, when viewed trough my aged eyes appear unmarked.

The new dial is dark blue but looks black to grey depending on the light conditions. It features a black on white day/date complication and the numbers on the dial are all the same size, not a disproportional size like the numbers on the OEM dial. Also a very minimal dial with only Seiko and Automtic on the dial. The numbers on the dial are not lumed.

The mod gives the watch a field watch look and IMHO looks better than the original OEM dial.

It features the 23 jewel 6R15C movement that hacks and hand winds, with a 50 hr power reserve- not personally verified. August 2015 serial number. I haven’t timed it but its running within Seiko specs.

40mm w/o the crown, 47mm lug to lug, 12mm thick. Non AR coated sapphire crystal, 100M WR, 20 mm lug width, signed crown

Comes on a premium Italian leather Dassari band. Also included is the OEM SS bracelet with 3 removed links, solid end links, a white, wooden Seiko box and hang tag. No manual or warranty card.

I’ve attempted to describe the condition as accurately as possible. Oversight on my part regarding cosmetic condition is possible. Please check the pictures closely.

This is a one of a kind mod and you’ll never see another one. I don’t have the original Seiko OEM SARG dial.

There are some crazy asking prices for the SARG009.
