Lllllove this dial!

Amazing dial! That matte texture really adds depth to your mod. Great loom. Fast shipping. Lil pricey but worth it spending the extra for premium parts.

Ashley (Perth, AU)
Using this mod part for: Complete custom build - SKX crown at 3 case with NH38 movement

Lovely texture on the dial and the green/blue lume is a nice alternative to the bright green you see on everything else. There's enough text to keep the dial interesting without being too OTT like some dials out there with a whole book written on them. Great handset too by the way.

Good stuff

Dial is great quality no complaints. Only reason i gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is cuz took a month to get here. But with that said its not there fault with everything going on in the world.

Fantastic from design to delivery!

I was in the market for a modded SKX but everywhere I looked I saw the same boring mods.

That's when I stumbled on to Lucius Atelier, I was blown away at their range of parts and how unique their inventory was.

LA had parts I'd never seen before and the way they listed the items made it easy to understand what fitted what. I used whatsapp to contact them, within the hour I had a response from Adriel.

Adriel talked me through the options and showed me links and images to parts till I had the perfect combination for my SKX.

His help was invaluable as this was my first mod. The level of support and advice was phenomenal and I really did appreciate it.

Adriel arranged, supplied and modded my SKX and dispatched it to me via DHL Express. I had the watch in the UK in 4 days, that's Singapore > UK including the build, QC and dispatch time. FANTASTIC!

The watch looks amazing and I couldn't be happier. Big thanks to Adriel and everyone at LA!

Fantastic quality, Awesome looks

After trying out several dial/hands combination, this combination strikes home for me.
This is an understated dial with bright blue lume, clean prints and matte black grainy finish.
Pefect with polished hands.

Fantastic legibility & details on the Nautical Explorer Dial

The dial is immaculate. The finishing and detailing are fantastic, the dial gives out a textured to it when viewed from different angle and the lume are strong and legible. A great change of pace to the stock dial I had of my old Seiko 5
