Default What "SPA" would you use and why?

I have a 6309-7040 that is in need of a makeover. A complete service of the movement, complete dial strip and refinish, clean and relume the hands and case refinish. I'm not to worried about the bezel and insert because I have an original one from another watch that I can use. Here are a couple of pictures of the watch in question.

You do not want to do a "complete dial strip and refinish" on your watch. Your SUWA dial looks pretty good in the pic and really only needs reluming.

I've used Ken Setser the most, and he's done a great job on movements and cosmetics, and he'll do just as much or as little as you ask. I have also recommended IWW to many folks.

Here's some of Setser's work (all run far better than specs):

I'm sure I will only be one of the Countless Members that will just REPEAT the Watches that we all look at much of the TIme
with the Feelings of "Thats Stunning" I would recommend You look at Clayton's Beautiful 6105-811X and 800X 6117 6309s
I say Clayton's especially due to the Fact they are Gorgeous but they are a few Threads below AKA=150m


I have similar results With some very beautiful Work from Jack.




This page will be filled Shortly but you can't go Wrong But The WAITE is always worth it IMHO. :'(


Good Luck If you want I will email you some Pics let me know Russell
