Default New To The Forum - Recent Projects

Hi all. I am brand new to this forum and i wanted to share a couple of my recent projects. I am thus far amazed at what I see here. Some great work by all.

I am an avid watch collector/enthusiast. I have been over on WUS and TZ for years, but just recently got up the courage to do my first full restoration on a Seiko 6106-5467 (similar to the one my Dad wore in the 70s) and most recently an eBay pickup 6319-6000 Sports. I did all the case and bracelet refinishing myself as well as a full teardown, service, and rebuild of the movements. I hope to learn a lot here and hope I can contribute in my own way. Thanks for looking.
