Replace the caseback, Easier and cost friendly.

You can get one for a fair price on ebay or at 10watches.com. Every watchmaker can install it for you in under a minute - it just screws off. Or you could get a casback opener tool and do it yourself!

Ok, I read this thread title and didn't get past "My seiko - Back side", before looking at the poster's name "Cowhorse". Imagine the pictures that rushed through my mind? :-[

I really need to learn to read more fully.

That's an omen from the watch Gods. Time to junk it and get a new one. Ask us for suggestions, go ahead, ask
