I usually live a few doors away in the Russian forum
I have been slowly building up a collection of SKX's, mainly new, however I broke the mould and went for this Seiko 6309 from ebay, a totally random purchase.
I'm fairly good at identifying the fakes and frankens in the Vostok and Poljot world, but I'm unsure what can get done to Seiko's.
It arrived today on a Seiko branded rubber strap which was smelly and cracked so that met the bin, I have another genunie strap for it.
It has Roman numerals as well as days on the day date, the bezel is solid and wont turn (I have a 009 that is stiff and I'm going to work on that so may do this one too)
Dial marking lume is not good and tha markings are a green colour, if they have been re done than it is a good job and the hands and sweep dot are a lighter but brighter lume.
It needs a full clean and service.
Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Im not sure of the differing colour of the hands and dial markers, but im no expert.
Thanks in advance,
