What does MOD or Modded mean? The word'mod' is short for modified, or customized. In the Seiko world it can be something as simple as changing the original hands to a custom set of hands, like a set of "Mercedes" style hands, the bezel insert to a different design or color, the dial, or face of the watch to a different designed dial, or one made of Mother of Pearl materials.
