    Found this watch while looking through my great uncles belonging...missing strap. Any idea if it's real and ball park worth? I know these watches are really expensive.

    Fake as a $3 bill. And that's about what it is worth.

    Those screws on the case look like they came from Home Hardware.

    Oh god the unevenness of that machine turning is not acceptable on a Seiko let alone a VC.

    I believe this was a special edition from 1984 made specifically to sell through the Homebase network. Fairly certain the screws are after market though. The kind of adaptation I’m more than capable of making to anyone’s watch should they be interested?
