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

    My dad's old Seiko 7005-7130. Its from '72.

    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:

    What compound did you use to buff out the scratches on the crystal and the housing? Did you use any special polishing gadgets?

    All I used was MicroMesh Regular 1500 grit to 12000 grit, Brasso Copper polish (all I had :P) and a lot of time ;)
