    Not sure how up-to-date ^that list is.


    I seem to recall seeing a Seiko Service Center (or more likely,
    an Authorized Distributor) in Trinoma, which seems to have
    earned itself a pretty bad rep among Seiko enthusiasts:

    This seems to be their precise addy:

    YMMV

    Gentlemen,
    Go to timezone.com. This is where I go for "Eyeball" liberty everyday. I learned a lot about watches just by reading the forums.

    Maraming small german watch companies, magaganda gawa with quality automatic movements. Like dievas, benarus, laco, etc. You can also go the custom path, buy a seiko divers then have it customized to your preference.

    WOW that is beautiful!!! from seikoboy too??? How do you pay for the parts? Type ko yung orange hands :) - I believe avenida watchshops are pretty good working on the watches din daw

    I was just thinking what if pa cerakote yung watch.... hmmmm but stainless siya so it might not last long.

    From Bill Yao of MkII Watches (US). Sila pa lang kasi dati gumagawa ng custom watch hands and faces. Pero meron na rin yata si seikoboy.

    Paypal lang ako nagbayad dati sa yobokies. He ships via ems from hk, kinabukasan lang nandito na.

    Just remember I have a watch from Bill Yao. For some reason, I like the Seiko military more.
