Default Rarely Seen In The Wild - 78 Seiko 6138-8021 Panda

Just wrapped up the overhaul and light restoration on this absolutely gorgeous 78 Seiko 6138-8021 Panda for a fellow SCWF forum member. Performed complete overhaul of the movement, light case restoration, and polished the crystal. What an honor and joy to work on this highly collectable timepiece. Thanks for looking.
