This 6139-6002 is probably the most pristine example I’ve ever laid my hands on. A shout-out to my good friend Reynaldo for giving me a crack at it. This watch is from July of ‘71 and was serviced by KVW. Installed is a later NOS Seiko Bezel that was purchased from Jonathan Koch before his passing. What an honor and privilege it is to own.

Default Ripley Reissue

Hiya Neilo!
Today I have opted for the JDM Ripley reissue.
Yeah, it's not the genuine article, but it was cheap and I do like the design.
All the best!

An Accurist World Timer today; this one was bought as a donor but I didn't have the heart to relegate the case and dial to my parts box. So several expensive parts later, it's fully operational and on its way to a friend.
Jay Sir Nice Accurist WT 👍⌚️and I must confess I do have all the Famous Five And Secret Seven books out of Nostalgia From when I was a kid😜👍

A few niggles compared to the original Erika's MN strap but for $12 I can't complain, plus the nylon he used to make this one is pretty much identical to Erika's, it even passed my "take it to the gym" and "wear it for bed" tests.
