Many of you will know me from various forums, especially SCWF, which is kind of my “home forum”, as well as my watches and photography blog: THIRTYFIVEMILL. Everything I do with regard to watches is purely motivated by my passion for them. When I want to get rich this hobby is not where I’ll look!
I’m a watch and long time Seiko enthusiast. 23–59 offers accessories and modifications not already available and generally deal with more “higher end”, quality mods, for want of a better expression. I like to subtly modify my watches, bringing them up to the standard I personally want and require, while not completely changing the watch itself. I plan to put together some watches like the ones shown on the blog and offer a one-stop shop where those mods and upgrades can be simply and easily purchased. I also plan put together some watches that can be purchased already completed and offer a service whereby enthusiasts can send in their watches to have the modifications done for them.
Whenever I mod or upgrade my watches I personally use nothing but the best parts available, always OEM or NOS whenever possible and that will always be my goal when producing mods and upgrades for 23-59. That means we won’t often be the cheapest but we will have the kind of quality that people like myself are looking for.
What is 23–59?
23–59 is an online retailer of accessories for watches and EDC (every day carry) as well as a custom engraving service. Not only do we supply clasps and crowns etc.. we will also engrave them for you with the text of your choice. The images shown on the blog and in the shop are of my personal items (yes, I’m a Seiko nut) but 23-59 is not affiliated with Seiko, it’s subsidiaries or any other company.
