Move to Japan, enroll in watch making school, take internship at Seiko and then a job there, make your own parts and restore this beauty. Or spend more time on internet to find the watchmaker who can.
Half_Lifecommented onWhat was the first watch brand that got you into watches?·
It more of a journey that one watch that did it. Difficult to remember the model but it was a #casio that could store phone numbers. This was when there were no cell phones. Then it was my first quartz a #timex Expedition that my dad bought me before my exams.. still the most cherished watch..
And the one that got me into the rabbit hole of collecting was my first mechanical/automatic watch from #seiko
Difficult to choose. In the picture below I have 2 chronographs, 2 GMTs, one world timer, one moon phase, one annual calendar and all of them have date complication..

Thanks for sharing. My AD almost sold me this one but I wasn’t sold at the time. All reviews I saw were going on about how awesome this was and its heritage and history. No one mentioned that reading time on takes time on this piece.
Also, One day like to hear the virgin story.. 😝
