    That's too bad about the polishing.

    Tell you what, I know the thing just really irritates you so I'll do you a couple of favors. I'll take it off your hands and pay you $100 for the shipping and handling.

    Deal?

    EDIT: I'll even throw in an old Casio that has an alarm, date and clock too. Real accurate because it's digital.

    In case anyone cares, this is a repro bezel. The original is worth as much as the watch, but these stainless 2915 bezels were not at all like the later versions. They torque easily and are MUCH easier to remove. I can easily pull the old one off with my hand. This is probably why we see 25 to 50 percent of 2915s without original bezels. Maybe more when one accepts many presented as real are likely good copies.

    I’d feel far too guilty taking anything for it after learning the truth about polishing. But thanks. I’ll suffer in relative silence.

    June 10th and it’s snowing… hard to see as it’s not staying on the ground but it’s horrible to see this time of year.

    Ah, the joys of being a Canadian! I think Alberta is the other province you can expect snow any month of the year!

    I keep this mangy old seiko in my @Duracuir1 hand made leather watch holder. I pretty sure the Duracuir company is doing the Rolex thing by making you get on a waiting list to obtain their products to make them even more prestigious. I won’t mention the fact that Duracuir doesn’t charge for his products of course as that would ruin my lame attempts at busting chops.

    well I got the seiko ready to go last night for work this AM but damn I woke up sick as a dog. Actually called out first time this year. My wife was looking at me very oddly as I did the “seiko shake” to get the watch running for the morning but she did point out I now hold the watch over my head as I do the “seiko shake” and incorporated a dance move into the whole process. I had to step back and observe myself and I’ll be darned if she ain’t right, I have now made a two minute “seiko shake dance” with the watch held high above my head. I have no clue how long it’s been going on but it works, it was running and keeping perfect time when I took it out of the fine Duracuir holder so she can laugh all she wants. By the way this is one of my favorite watches which is why I keep it in the Duracuir, I know it’s not a true pouge but I just can’t see getting all worked up about that. If I ever come across a reasonably priced one, probably never, I would try to pick one up but having this I just don’t see the need to bother.

    Dont do it, they are all just scamming you, offering you attractive deals ( too good to be true) then once they have your email and address they will ask for you bank account number and drain your account, long term phishing scam.

    Just send it to me, I'll hide it where no one can ever be offended by that dodgy polish job, no strings attached.
