Default My Newest Addition...the Seiko 6105-8110 possibly my last project

Well due to my failing health...i find this latest project may be my last...it has all the signs of being the wrong one to start with...case has been polished and damaged....the case tube is broken and missing...there is corrosion under the case back seal..the click ball is stuck and also the lug holes are loose and elongated....so i know most would not even consider this one worth their time and look for a better case ...but as most of you know..i love a underdog story....my plans are to try and restore this to as original as possible but not making it look brand new...i want this to look as original and used as it should be ..I will be only using genuine seiko parts if at all possible with the exception of a type 2 Spencer Klein Crystal and VTA seals...i will show with minimal expenses that even something that has been this unloved and abused can be brought back to nice condition with some knowledge and some great craftsman here on the forum...my plans are to replace the damaged case tube and replicate the tube as it was and restore the crown workings as it was...the damaged case seal will be machined out and i will have a very experienced friend tig weld the area and lathe cut the seal area to like new...and then micro weld the damaged case and then finally try and replicate the finish this beautiful watch once had...and i will also show u how to take a damaged caseback and repair it as well...all of these things can be done very cost effectively as well with some ingenuity and some thought...
i will also show how to relume and dial and hands ...with simple tools at home..and lastly ...my original movt was damaged beyond repair due to water so i will also be showing how to take the seiko 6106 base movement and make yourself a 6105b movt with the correct genuine parts....all of these can be done with some time and right resources and lots of patience...i want to thank many great friends who have kindly sold me many new genuine movt parts to be able to do this conversion.....16 parts in total to make this all work
this will take me much time with my health being very poor and with help from great friends here on the forum...i will try and show that even though we start with not the best example...with some hard work and some smart buys...you too can have one of the best watches Seiko even produced...God Bless,John
most of the processes i will do i will add links here from others who i am following in their footsteps...if it were not to forums like here and others..i would never consider something this involved....so many great people here have figured out how to fix and repair these amazing watches...we all need to thank them all...without their time and knowledge .....many of us would be in the dark...i want to thank everyone of them...thank u for sharing the skills u have learned with us all...

well here is what i am starting with....i have been fooling around with what i have...the dial and hands are from two different watches...dial is genuine and shows wear and tear...needs a good cleaning and relume....
hands were from a 7625 i got some time ago...love the lume color..almost a khaki color...never seen that color before...not sure if will try and replicate it...the band is from a great friend...it is from a Seiko 6139 it is called the Presidental band ...i will use this with a set of Seiko 6138 jumbo end links...thank u again for that idea my friend...
thank u all for reading this...i know the chapter ring is all wrong...a Seiko 6309 chapter looks wrong..but for some reason i like it...
God Bless,John

here is a quick mockup

Looks like a great project John, and hopefully not your last. I wish you well and I can't wait to see it all come together.

well i want to thank each and every one of you personally ...i do not ever feel comfortable talking about myself and this wicked disease...truly cruel it is...i have lost close to 13 years of my life to it...but i have realized since they determined what i have...the reason why people do not talk about it...is most do not know...what i have...is something very rare...it is called Poryphria...also known as the Vampire Disease...i know that sounds crazy...but what it is ....is a faulty gene that does not process Heme in my blood...which in turn poisons me till i wind up in the hospital...most Dr's i am told have heard of it while they are in school but never seen it in real life...the version they believe i have is even more rare...lucky for me...both of my Parents would have to be carriers or have the disease for me to get it...they tell me i have two versions of Poryphria...the Neuro...which is the internal...left flank pain which is severe...the tingling of the hands and legs...the blurry and double vision and other fun stuff and the Cutaneous...which gives u skin which burns in the sunlight...why people call it Vampire Disease...and screws badly with your vision...i have to keep covered up all the time and dark sunglasses to be able to see...the only way for me to have this is thru my birth parents...and seeing i am Adopted...and in NY State...that info was kept from me ...Thank God for Ancestry DNA with Traits as i am trying to piece together my family history and found out that on my Dad's side most of the men died young...and on my Mom's side it looks like people had this illness as well...i am told this wicked disease is also what came from the Queen's Family In England and was passed thru her line to Russia and Germany and possibly others...so what i am trying to tell you all...please know your family history...ask questions...if u can not find out...do your research...and trust me...no matter how bad things look...they can always be worse...Thank God...i have him or i would truly be lost...no matter what happens tomorrow...i want to thank each and every one of you for always being so kind and generous...let that spread to everyone...
God Bless,John
i pray God will give the skills and time to make this project to the end...i love to see a plan come together...

John - it looks like a terrific start to what I know will be a successful project.

I am sorry to learn that you are ill, but I know from the short time I've been here that you have left a profound mark on those who know you. You and your family are absolutely in my thoughts.

John, I think we all are excited to see the final version of this current project. I am sure you will do it justice by bringing back its best features. And thank you for sharing about your illness although one thing I have always believed is that since god knows all things, he is familiar with all your needs. We simply pray that god have his way in your life. He is the great physician and healing is the childrens bread. He died that we could have eternal and everlasting life. We are sinners saved by grace, John, I know you know this. Claim the victory my brother ! Believe that where 2 or more are gathered together in his name and agree, there he is with them in their midst. Matthew 18:20. I agree with you for your healing John, I have faith you will be blessed. This is a test of your faith brother. There are many believers on this forum that will agree with us in prayer and faith, you are not alone. Be strong and stand against the enemy ! It is his strength that will prevail and cause you to overcome. We are weak, yet he is strong and he desires to show you healing through your faith ! He desires to show you just how much he loves you.
