Watch Modding with H2Hub
For watch collectors and enthusiasts around, the world of watch modding offers one the chance to breakdown, rebuild and construct the watch of your dreams. Many brands around, whether they’re micro-brands or household name brands gives you the options of modulation- giving you the freedom to add a personal touch to your watch. From the straps to the dials, even to the crystal, bezel and hands. Having the right base watch is the first and possibly most important step to watch modding.
What with all the options of modding available, and the array of watch designs around as well, there is one design in particular that stands above all; The Dive watch.
Dive watches have been around since the 1950s and have grown to become one of the most recognizable and desirable designs in watchmaking over time. They’re incredibly popular thanks to their timeless and versatile designs as well as their rugged go-anywhere do-anything dependability too. The dive watch also offers a bit more to work around with in terms of modding compared to say, a pilot’s watch or a dress watch too. That defining feature being the bezel. For such a simple tool to help one measure elapsed time, it’s become pretty much the defining feature of the dive watch as well as a canvas for modders to express their imagination on.
Flexibility is the name of the game here, and the dive watch design offers plenty of that, with options varying from the hands, dials, markers, crystals and the bezels too. Whether you’d like more lume, or different lume colours on your hands and markers, or a bezel in ceramic or stainless steel, or even a more vintage look with a domed sapphire crystal, there’s no limits for the variations and degree in creating your own modified timepiece.
If this is your first foray into watch modding, it may seem rather daunting and complex at first, the process can indeed range from relatively straightforward to immensely complicated depending on what you’re looking to do with your watch. Whether you’re looking for a simple aesthetic mod such as switching the hands and bezels to a complete overhaul, where everything (except for the case and movement) is swapped out. We’re more than happy to inform you that we’re here to make this process that much more straightforward for you, by doing all the heavy lifting.
