    Before a new battery was fitted to my 1979/80 Seamaster this afternoon I was carefully warned that it wouldn't be waterproof without fitting new gaskets and testing. My reply is always "That is the last watch I would take to sea!" Look at it, apart from dining at the Captain's table on a large cruise-liner what use is it at sea above or under water?

    Omega AD wants to send it away to have new gaskets at GBP100 a pop, so I take it to a Rolex AD who fits a new battery for GBP15 -- and gives me that warning. With modern (non-mercury) batteries only lasting 13-15 months keeping it immersible would be expensive.

    This beauty just became my latest acquisition. I’d been hoping to find one of these ever since they were announced by Longines over three years ago:

    Thanks, @Livesimply11 :thumbsup: !

    Yep, notched crown (which I believe is correct for most if not all '69 6139-6005s). The original pushers were bent and the crystal scratched to hell, but it turned out rather nice after getting some new pushers and crystal.
