Looks like an arts and crafts project. What made be break up with laughter was the case work. Looks like someone took a rasp to the sides of these cases.

Hmmm, I dont think these are original. The case lines are no longer sharp and the brushing isnt correct. The bezels appear to be aftermarket as Im fairly certain Seiko didnt put a 24hr bezel on these. The number 9 on the gold dial is suspect too. Can we see a picture of the movement? If not can we see what the owner was drinking when he thought this was a good idea?

Terrible is not even where these are..
they would have been better off not starting and throwing away these parts
People who this kind of work should be publically shamed
The blue dialed one even has a descent dial and hands
Truly shameful work
God Bless,John

Looks good to me, beveled pushers, marks extend to the edge on the subdial. Congrats!

I felt actual, literal pain looking at those photos. Made me laugh and cry at the same time

The second one also reminds me of the Peugeot 206 advert from years ago, if anyone remembers it?

Acid was very prevalent during that era. This person obviously enjoyed it a lot.

What if all of this is just a facade. Underneath are two pristine 6139 movements that run to COSC standards.
