Maybe it's crazy, but there is a beater of a Seiko 6139 that I'd like to be able to wear for rough and tumble stuff, including getting wet. Original WR was 70m, so that would suffice. I'm not looking for a diver's watch. So the question is whether it's possible (with reasonable cost) to restore the WR.
If so, I'm willing to take a chance. If it ends up not working out, I won't be heartbroken. And Seiko fans shouldn't either. It's a beater and has a replacement dial.
PS Also looking for suggestions on a watchmaker that would be able to do this kind of work.
