Vintage inspired mod

The case is amazing and easy to use. The fit is precise and the finishing is suburb. Also really like the deep threads on both the caseback and crown - makes me feel a more comfortable about taking it in the water.

The bracelet is solid, but I wish it would taper down more to 16mm. The 18mm clasp is too bulky and isn't really proportional to the case, so throws the balance off when you wear it on wrist.

The service was first class, and shipping was extremely quick. Really appreciate the handwritten note from Adriel.

Finished Project

Hi! I already left a review but I wanted to share how the watch looks now after finishing the project. Just so people with similar modding ideas can see the finished project. As I said before, Probably the best case + Bracelet out there!

NH38 White Birch build

incredible service, fast and precise build. Ordered the 36mm Explorer case/Bracelet with Shirakaba White Birch Tree Dial (No Date), Grand Seiko Dauphine hands with brushed top and polished bevels with Blue seconds hand. I chose to have Adriel assemble these with a regulated NH38 movement. Watch assembly is great, clean, and precise! The Bracelet is very comfy! Great communication from start to finish!

Great Personal Costumer Service and High Quality Product

I am very happy with the product. It has a lot of quality compared to other cases on the market. Miles better than Riyi's case. More expensive too.. but the difference is worth it if you want a more serious build. It has better finish, AR coating which makes a big difference, beautiful proportions, fit and finish is better and finally the sapphire glass is better too.

Then we have the bracelet. Such a good product. The quality of it completely exceeds expectations. Specially compared to how bad the bracelets for other explorer cases on the market are. A high quality item.

Fantastic combo for an explorer mod. Probably the best quality in the market.

Costumer service: Excellent. Thank you Adriel so much for your service. I really appreciate it when somebody cares so much about the costumer experience. This + the quality of the products, will make me buy again in the future.

Photos: Now I have it with a salmon dial but the idea is to swap it for a gray 62mas dial which is on its way home. Hopefully I’ll have a very nice everyday watch in the next few days.

Thanks a lot,

Explorer Watch Case - 36mm

I absolutely love this watch case. I have dabbled with other common 36mm cases you can find online and this one is by far my favorite. Built with my favorite OEM dial.

Another great product from LA!

Purchased multiple items and all have been superb, and this is no exception!

Case and bracelet finishing are really well done for something in this price range. Everything fits together well, and is really comfortable to wear.

I used a SNKE61 dial and hands with a NH36 movement, wanted something Explorer-esqe

A few highlights:
SII movement fits well in the case, better than the V1 Explorer case
The case top has vertical brushing which closely matches the vertical brushing of the bracelet, as opposed to the usual circular brushing of other mod cases
The bracelet width tolerances closely match the case, better than other mod cases/bracelets I've seen
Everything looks/feels in proportion with this 36mm version
