    Re: Awesome watches guys!....joslar, that NOS 6309 is just spectacular

    Great thread. Thanks to all who posted pics - some gorgeous Seikos!

    Not all are guilty, but it would've been more interesting for those of us with little vintage Seiko knowledge to have some details (or at least an indication of year of manufacture), rather than just photo(s) with no info!

    Re: Let's See Your Vintage Seikos

    I am very new to Seiko crowd, but do have special feeling towards Seiko. Not overly expensive watches and do all what needs to be done or even more with great reliability.
    I found this watch in the basement when we bough our house years ago.
    Recently I got hook up on watchmaking (still just a beginner yet, but did complete couple of projects).
    This particular Seiko will be my first automatic watch that I am planning to work on.
    It's working when on the move, but stops in several hours or so after removing from the hand.
    I want to take it apart and under the guide of watchmaking forum to see if I can service this watch, plus it needs to be polished, possibly change crystal as well.
    Now waiting for JAXA type of back case opener to arrive and start the project.
    Here the pictures.
    BTW, can any one tell me more about this model? When was it produced. Thanks in advance.

    Same vintage chrono in a few different combos.

    On a watchadoo


    On a Stella mesh


    On a Jubilee style bracelet which I 'liberated' from a Seiko 5 Sports Rally diver (re-issue)

    I got the watch in a very used condition but after quite a lot of polishing this morning and a new leather strap it sure does look a lot better:


    The crystal is not the original one, the original one was destroyed in a crash in '75. There are a few small scratches on the dial (from the same crash) and the crown is not completely straight. But I am afraid that trying to bend it wil break it completely, it functions perfect so that is not a problem. The movement also seems fine.

    How I got it last week:

    Great job of bringing a watch back to life! Looks great...

    Yes! Let's keep this thread a-goin'.

    The more I think about vintage Seikos, the more I feel like they are a perfect niche for me as a collector. They're distinctive yet affordable. I am amazed by the variety of designs I see in this thread alone. I have to set about educating myself on the history of this manufacturer. There must be a book....
    In reverse order of acquisition: ROLEX Explorer I / SEIKO SRP775 Turtle Reissue / SEIKO 6139-6002 "Pogue" (blue dial) / SEIKO 6105-8119 / NOMOS Zurich / OMEGA Speedmaster 3750.50 / SEIKO 6106 Sea Lion / OMEGA Aqua Terra 2503.33 / SEIKO Orange Monster / OMEGA 1959 cal. 500 Seamaster / LONGINES tank c. 1940s

    Re: Let's See Your Vintage Seikos

    I am very surprised that no one has posted one of these yet. A real classic, the "Speedmaster Quartz"



    I wish they still made them like this. Sorry about the green reflection on the left (top of case), I plan to photograph it properly and post the images here. In the meantime, this quick snapshot will have to do...
