Today I received an email from Ashford with the scariest subject line ever:

I might be the only person on this site that thinks the SKX line isn't anything special.

I am mostly with you on this. I have never owned one, but I am not really a dive watch guy. It just isn’t my thing, so the SKX line does little for me as far as watches go. However,...

<note>
The below statement reflects my imperfect understanding of the watch modding world, so I may be completely off base here.
</note>

I do greatly appreciate them as the availability of after market parts has made watch modding a lot easier and accessible to a great number of people. Without the popularity of modding the SKX we wouldn’t likely have me making lumed dials as the handsets/bezels, etc. would be less available than they are today. Many of those parts for the SKX will fit the Invicta 8926, but I am pretty sure they were meant with the SKX line in mind (see: Dagaz who designed his own watch after it was known that the SKX line was being discontinued).

I am guessing that small time parts makers started out making parts for the SKX and then expanded to include parts for the 8926 family(ie: Murphy Mfg.).

At any rate, the SKX line is special in that, I believe, it gave us the watch modding culture that wet are currently enjoying.

I wish there was a way to have all my watches in the front row of my watch box without having to get a really wide box. I feel like my watches behind the first row don't get enough attention.

My watch box is full, so when I take off a watch and there's no room for it, I just lay it along the row divider. I'm sorry.

That horrible feeling you get when you find something you meant to buy on eBay... The day after the coupon expires.

Less of a confession, just didn't know where else to post this.

If a California dial is half arabic/half roman numerals.
What would you call a dial that is half numerals/half indices?
