    Well, here is my Frankenstein.
    I am very pleased with the outcome, and look forward to years of use and abuse.

    I elected to go with contrast stitching on the band, which I prefer over the Omega styling.
    I put this combination together for under $100. (Watch, strap, clasp)

    I'd like to thank Apollo for helping make this happen.

    Very nice. I thought, from a previous post that you were looking at a replica. I believe that's a Seiko, correct? (can't quite tell) A real Seiko is better than a fake anything. I have a couple Seiko Divers that I have beat the crap out of and they have held up like champs. Great value for the money. Nicely done.

    I believe that's a Seiko 5. Great movement. I have one of those.

    Also great look! I might think about doing this myself!

    I think these Seiko 5 would be about as ideal as possible, personally. It is 38MM with dark blue dial. SNX113. Is likely the watch I plan to use for my project.

    I believe this is a black dial.

    Reevolving, that is a brilliant idea, and I love the strap. After seeing this thread I'm considering getting a strap/clasp similar to yours and put it on this Invicta I own:

    How'bout this Seiko? It's 39mm/9mm ...a little bigger, but thinner than the other posted.
