So, alongside completing the build of the WC Camel
and finishing the complete refurb of another Seiko 5
I also managed to squeeze in a service/refurb of this Seiko 6309-8080. (It rained a lot this weekend)
It's not a 5 although it shares much of the 5 DNA, most notably the 6309 movement which powers so many of the 5s from this period. (70s - 80s).
It wasn't in poor condition, it just needed a good service, a case refinish and a new acrylic crystal. The dial is pristine which is always a bonus.
Nice clean movement post service (rotor not attached)
..so now it's ready to explore pastures new...
@Guvnor64 - call me 😉
A self confessed Seikophile who spends far too much time looking at bits of watches under a microscope. It keeps me out of trouble.... mostly
Will do! Nice job...
Ooo, love this one. I wanna put it on a nice deep brown leather, or maybe something crazy like a blue and white stingray or lizard. I feel a cushion case in my future.
