1979 Solar Seiko A156-5020 Revived ☀️⌚️

Seikos first ever solar watch. From a bucket of parts to a working watch! It was in rough shape so it’s still not perfect, but it’s perfect to me! With a nos crystal and a new capacitor, it’s polished and ready to go!

What a great job and a classic time piece that is a part of history. I wouldn't even know where to start with something like this so admire the skil.

good job. how can the crystal be removed and put in again?

Thank you! I usually just use my cheap case back press I have. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it shatters into a million pieces… 😂
