Terra Explorer Dial

Crown Position

After re-working on multiple prototypes of an explorer dial specifically for Seiko models while trying to preserve the unique characteristic of an explorer face, we have finally decided on this design.

The Terra Explorer possesses a glossy black enamel finish that alludes opulence. A 3, 6 and 9 numerals aligned with the outer track indices to compose a visually wider watch face. Furthermore, the characteristic numerals are filled with 100% Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 emitting a long-lasting blue glow, like the hour markers.


Made exclusively for us with quality assurance by ISO 9001 Certified manufacturers.

Excellent build quality!

Just wanted to leave a 5 star review for Lucius Atelier's Terra Explorer dial and handset. Excellent quality, lume is nuclear and the applied indices on the dial are top notch. Shipping came pretty quick from across the globe too! Would definitely buy from again.

Thanks buddy! Love to see your completed mod! =D
Using this mod part for: Classic 36mm sterile Explorer case.

Great quality dial and hands. Packaged really well and lume is superb.

Wow! Awesome base watch for the mod!! Love it!
Great quality!

Lume on the dial is great. Applied markers are well finished too!

Excellent quality and service

I have modded 4 Seiko watches to date, having purchased components from almost all the major players (DLW, Yobokies, Dagaz, Aestus, MotorCity WatchWorks, etc) and I have to say, Lucius Atelier is the cream of the crop! The Terra Explorer dial is absolutely beautiful... the enameled dial gives adds that little extra bit of sophistication that has people do a double-take when they look at the watch... it's a great way to wear something like a Rolex Explorer, until you can get a Rolex Explorer!

The most impressive part of Lucius Atelier is their customer service, thus far. Every manufacturer of Seiko mod parts is a pleasure to work with, but my package was sent registered mail, which means a mailman actually needed my signature to confirm delivery. Living in the US, my biggest frustration has been the shipping process from Asia, as I have had an order lost before, so this extra detail was very much appreciated. Everything was meticulously packaged in individual plastic cases, more than other manufacturers have provided. Additionally, there was a cute handwritten note and some extra goodies in the package, like finger cots and a laser pointer! Either way, it shows that Adriel of Lucius Atelier truly cares and is someone worth doing business with! Even though the components are priced with a premium, the quality of the work makes it worth it! (I also purchased the Mercedes Benz hands in polished silver - spectacular!, along with a black leather band... not bad for $20USD)

Hey Daniel! Thank you very much for your compliments! We do our best since we love what we do. I am so glad you love the dial and experience along with it! Oh and the laser pointer, it actually functions as a UV torch as well, but I guess you already figured that out Once again, a sincere thanks for the review and support!
