Hello fellow watchists; your advice/suggestions would be welcomed on this....
I bought this rather lovely Seiko 5 6119 recently. It's dated July 1970 which makes it pretty much as old as me. I'm going to service/refurb it but I have a dilemma. What do I do about the missing baton at 2 o'clock. I've scoured the interweb for a replacement to no avail. So what should I do?
a) Try and find a similar dial from another Seiko 5 (it may not be a 6119)
b) get something completely different.. like this...
With new hands maybe??
c) just leave it as is... it's part of it's character/story.
d) something else??
I could leave as is, replace the movement with a non-functioning pin-lever and sell it to @chronotriggered for £5 I suppose?
