This started out as a standard SRP495j (Stargate). A beautiful base to start a mod with. The finish of the watch case is better than of the SKX-cases (SRP495 is in the “Superior class of Seiko). I think this case is up to standard with a Sumo case. The bezel of the Stargate is something that some people like, and some people dislike. I replaced it with a coin edge bezel rom Yobokies, I think that is adds to the diver-character of the watch.
The curved case shape is also present in the Sumo, this makes the watch lie comfortable on your wrist. The finish is a combination of brushing and polishing techniques, all neatly done. The bracelet, with solid end-links, has a clasp with divers’ extension, it is still a divers’ watch.
