Okay, okay. I was wrong.
Seikos deserve their own FORUM.
[Done in the name of the holy squirrel!]
Already a number of them out there...
Well, then, we got that accomplished.
None for Japanese, this clearly states one extra section not multiple. This is due to the Omega Forums being the best watch forum on the internet and a separate site would never be as good.
One button chrono with sector dial today - This is the first model that was made in 1964.
There are lots of Seiko and Asian watch forums out there...
Nice! Curiously mine spent several years in flight training in the '80's, unfortunately not military. FWIW mine also cost $195 in '78...don't have the box anymore but I remember this thing in the jeweller's window when I was at college in London, Ontario...I had to hawk my electric guitar to pay for it!!!
So, when they get to be this old, does your watchmaker service the movement or pop in a new one if parts are hard to get?
Not sure if you're serious, but Seiko no longer makes this movement. The only way would be to properly service it and find parts as necessary for any that are worn out. I don't own a 6309, but I don't imagine parts are that hard to get a hold of when needed.
Basically, yeah, I was asking if you can't find parts because they're too hard to get, do you save the movement like we'd save the original Tritium hands for a vintage Speedy Pro, and go with a new replacement? Maybe I structured my question wrong.
But that was assuming that parts were that hard to get after 40 years.
It’s not really an issue.
I'm assuming my 22 year old SKX009 movement is still made, but it was not a problem getting it serviced 2 years ago.
Love my premoon speedie, love my Rolex submariner and loving these two recent finds..
I fully endorse this plan!
Sorry I'm not clear on how to upload a picture yet but I suggest Seiko Turtle fans to take a look at the new special edition SRPC91K1 Save the ocean edition. Oooooooo BEAutiful
I just came in from outside on a sunny day and set the MM on my desk. The lume is crazy strong, my room isn’t even dark.
Sad that Seiko discontinued it. They will probably redo it with a big X on the dial and a worse movement and add 300$
Interesting Seiko. They obviously are inspired by Rolex on this iteration . The dial had "...officially certified chronometer". What organization "officially" certified this chronometer?.
In Switzerland? I thought Seiko used some other horological body.
