In a way, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Replica in the photo looked very familiar…yet also very different. I scrolled back up to the picture and took a second look. And then it struck me: the guy had swapped the bezel on his Seamaster 300M, exchanging its original black one for a blue one — and it looked fantastic!

The next example is also an Omega Seamaster Replica Watches Store, but this time, it’s the older Professional reference 2254.50.Apart from the fact that I think it’s a very good-looking combination, he also says the new bezel is much easier to turn than the original SMP bezel.

There’s something about the combination of the big text on the left, the numerals on the right, and the open space in between that really speaks to me. And the good thing is that it’s not even that hard to change out those inserts, so if you feel like swapping it, you can quickly do it yourself.
He now better understands how the smallest adjustments can make a big difference, and he appreciates his watches more now than before, even the Omega Replica Swiss Movement ones he didn’t mod. I can very well imagine that this happens after you start fiddling with your watches a bit more. However, I’m still a bit hesitant about starting to modify mine.

The closest I get to modding at the moment is changing straps. But I have been inspired by looking at these other mods and reading about how they came to be. As many before me have done, I might just pick up an older Seiko 5 watch and start modifying it a bit. It could be a nice start, and then, who knows? In the end, I might even dare to touch one of my other Omega Replica Watches China!
What about you? Are you a “modder”? Have you altered anything about the way your watches look or function? Perhaps you’ve made a bezel swap like the ones highlighted in this article, or you’ve done something completely different to your watch(es).
