How did the purchase go? Any other feedback?

Thanks,

Robin

Same from me - I've never read any complaints posted about Yobokies - just delighted new owners with great pictures.

Thanks guys,

I am thinking of getting a "modded" Seiko as they look rather interesting.

Andrema - Thanks for the other links. It was such an easy choice before :D Will have to look at them in more detail.

Cheers,

Robin

I like the look of this one. Sort of looks like a mod'd monster, could someone tell me what seiko it was before being mod'd.

Ask the OP, I am sure he will let you know. It could be either Harold or Jake.

I have a Yobokies modded monster. The quality is top notch. I can't speak for how he is, as I bought it off someone else, but I've heard nothing but good things about him.

Mine is on the way. Harold was very easy to deal with.
