SOME SCRATCHES WERE 1 MM DEEP!
LOOK AT RELUMED DIAL
LIKE NEW

IMG_0344.JPG (140295 bytes)

PLEASE DO NOT HAVE SOME SCREW UP CASE BACKS AFTER WE RESTORE THEM
IT TOOK 1 1/2 HOUR TO REMOVE GOUGES CAUSED BY USE OF WRONG TOOLS

MIXING RED WITH WHITE FOR CORRECT ORIGINAL COLOR

IMG_0349.JPG (151585 bytes)

USING REPLACEMENT HANDS CAN LEAD TO PROBLEMS
MANY WILL FALL OFF. I LIKE TO USE ORIGINAL
EVEN IF THEY HAVE SOME ROUGHNESS
IN FACT, THEY SHOW THE WATCH IS ORIGINAL
WHEN PLACED IN CASE WITH CRYSTAL THEY LOOK PERFECT

ORIGINALLY A SPRING WAS IN THE HOLE WITH A STEEL BALL BEARING
THE BOTTOM OF BEZEL HAS HASHED CHANNELS
WHEN TURING THE BALL BEARING ALLOWS CLICK SETTING
THIS ARRIVED WITH BEZEL TURNING AT WILL

JUST LOOK! WOW

 

IMG_0329.JPG (160176 bytes)

THE MOVEMENT HAS
"SEIKO 6105B"
WHICH  IS A HACKING MOVEMENT
BUT THIS 6105 DOES NOT HACK
WHEN OVERHAULING WE CONCLUDED THAT IT
IS ONE OF THE FIRST 6105 NON HACKING
WITH A 6105B ROTOR BRIDGE

IMG_0328.JPG (163406 bytes)

A SERIOUS PROBLEM HAD TO BE CORRECTED BEFORE WE
TORE IT DOWN CLEANED IT AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER
THE ROTOR WAS SEPARATED
FINDING A NEW OR USED 6105 ROTOR WOULD TAKE MONTHS
WE OPTED TO REPAIR THE DAMAGED PIN

 IMG_0330.JPG (154654 bytes)

ORIGINAL DIAL WAS CLEANED AND RE-ILLUMINATED

IMG_0332.JPG (136104 bytes)

WHITE LUMINOVA IS PERFECT

CASE REQUIRES FILE & SANDPAPER REFINISH BEFORE BUFFING
WE REPLACED CRYSTAL AND SEAL WITH THOSE SUPPLIED BY THE PATRON WHO OWNS THE WATCH
SEALS WERE AFTER MARKET FROM CHINA & PATRON CHOSE A STRAIGHT GLASS DOMED OR MOON CRYSTAL
WHILE COOL, WE DO NOT USE THEM. WE USE ONLY ORIGINAL HARDLEX CRYSTALS THAT ARE FLAT AND
ARE PROTECTED BY THE BEZEL- THEY MAKE THE WATCH FACE LOOK BETTER AND NOT DISTORTED.
ALSO THIS MOON TYPE CRYSTAL IS NOT TREATED AND WILL SCRATCH EASIER
ALSO IT IS EXPOSED DUE TO THE FACT IT SITS HIGH ABOVE THE BEZEL

IMG_8401.JPG (126182 bytes)IMG_8400.JPG (129516 bytes)IMG_8399.JPG (123442 bytes)

YO! THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!
KEEPS ME KEEPING ON!

 Hello Rock & Denise,

 I received the watches today...............WOW.....they look like "new
 old stock"....Rock you did a marvelous job servicing & renovating
 them...they're beautiful!!! I am wearing the 6309-7040 as I type!!! I
 am going to my watchmaker tomorrow to have the jubilee bracelet sized
 on the 7290. Both watches are stunning. My buddies are going to be very
 jealous at the next watch GTG!

 regards, Bob

I HAVE WORN THIS WATCH FOR A WEEK NOW. PERFECT. WENT SWIMMING WITH IT PERFECT.
TIMING IS PERFECT. RESERVE IS PERFECT. I ALMOST WANT TO KEEP IT!

http://goldsmithwatchworks.com/2a-sek-dv/seiko-dv-0609003.jpg


The Watch Is Complete
I have worn the watch for several days
and will place photos asap!

cp-sd001.jpg (101207 bytes)

THE BEST CONCLUSION WAS TO LEAVE THE ORIGINAL DIAL AS IT WAS.

WHEN I WENT WATCH SHOPPING SUNDAY AND MONDAY WEARING THIS
BEAUTY, I HAD SO MANY QUESTIONS ASKED .. LIKE
"WHAT KIND OF WATCH IS THAT?" 

IT TRULY IS FANTASTIC. I HATE TO SELL HER, BUT, THEN AGAIN,
HOW ELSE CAN I FEED MY NEED TO RESTORE WATCHES
WITHOUT BUYING NEW OLD ONES!

cp-sd003.jpg (90244 bytes)

THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST VINTAGE DESIGN THAT WAS EVER MADE
AND THE BEST I HAVE DONE THUS FAR... WELL.. UM... UH..

I THOUGHT THE 1960 INVICTA I RESTORED AND WROTE AN ESSAY ABOUT WAS THE BEST...

3333333012.jpg (24349 bytes)

I THOUGHT THE 1968 BULOVA OCEANOGRAPHER WITH ORANGE MARKERS AND SILVER DIAL WAS THE BEST I RESTORED..

I THOUGHT THE 1959 BUCHERER DIVE AUTOMATIC ETA WITH THE YELLOW ARROW BAND WAS THE BEST I ..

IMG_2510.JPG (98389 bytes)

I THOUGHT THE....

...YOU GET IT.!

cp-sd004.jpg (85880 bytes)

A BIG STREAMLINED LOOK IS WHAT THIS WATCH IS ABOUT.

cp-sd007.jpg (104737 bytes)

WITHOUT THE DIVE SUIT EXTENDER
BAND IS 7 1/2 TO 7 3/4

IF YOU REQUIRE A LARGER SIZE I CAN ADD A COOL
SPRINGED EXTENSION. THEY LOOK GREAT AND EXTEND
THE BAND TO 3/4 TO 1 1/4.

FOR A TOTAL OF   8 3/4

FURTHER, IF YOU WANT A LOGO, NAME PLATE
OR OTHER NEAT ATTACHMENT - I CAN ADD IT TO
THE EXTENSION LIKE I DID WITH THE MARINE CORP EMBLEM ON THE TAG

IMG_0837.jpg (131715 bytes)


(GOLDSMITHWORKS.COM OR GOLDSMITHWATCHWORKS.COM )

cp-sd008.jpg (88067 bytes)

SMOOTH & CLEAN. THE CROWN LOCKS
AND THE MOVEMENT IS BETTER THAN THE CASE!

WE PRESSURE TESTED THE WATCH AND IT HELD
BUT WE DO NOT WARRANTY WATER PROOFING
DUE TO MANY FACTORS.
