Sorry I know it's a live listing but well worth looking at.

Is that a blob of wood glue holding on the 6:00 index?

35 per part, maybe.

I'd say 35 is not bad for the "project", but then I noticed that it was the starting price. Pesky "make an offer" button. I'm always tempted to offer 5,- LESS than the shown price.

Now that's the way it should be done. Sell the bracelet with red lumpy things for more than the cost of the watch and get a Free 6309 SUWA (with beautiful Red Text)

John, That Silver cuff with Red Coral is a Great find. The coral hasn't been source since the 70's and is very desirable among Southwest Indian Jewelry collectors. Here is a watch Band that is worth more than most watches...No Joke !

I think the Timex actually looks much better on the bracelet than the Seiko. But that Big Horned sheep looks Evil. The Ram with those big green eyes looks like a possessed Animal Spirit or an Alien Predator with Horns. It scares me

The Big/Direct eyes are a show of Balance and Focus.

Ooowhee! I'm usually not keen on SW style jewelry, but I'll make an exception in this case! That is some seriously good looking hardware.

untested, not currently running but may just need a battery or something, i tried puling the twister out to rotate the dial and I struggled to pull it out and didnt want to break it so will leave it to a collector/ expert
