Default new acquisitions

Here are 3 nice Seikos to add to my collection/sales inventory
The "Arti" watch is in mint condition, original strap with all boxes, manuals and original receipt.
When I got it the battery and the brass plate holding the battery were a bit green, not sure if it would be OK.
Got it home, cleaned the brass plate with Simachrome polish, cleaned out the battery compartment, put in a new battery and it started running like a new watch! Not bad for $25.00! The Seiko GMT I paid a heck of a lot more for it, but less than what they are going for. No boxes, but original bracelet, sans a couple of links. Got it from the original owner. The Futura I got from a thrift store. Had a new capacitor/battery that I installed, put it on my charger, and now it runs great.
I put the Arni and the GMT for sale in the antiques co-op that I am in, hopefully someone with Seiko fever comes in!

Enjoy!
