Default Seiko 6138-0020 Tokei Zara restoration.

6 months ago i gto the opportunity to grab that underestimated watch.

Why did i wanted this model ?Because of the dial,but obviously its Helmet case!



Watch arrived with a spare bracelet,but most of all the original one !



Take a look at the dial patina...Marvelous !!



Everything seems to be original,time to work on.



Bezel is buffed,and case refinished with a 3M abrasive.In this way i got a great satinized case and bracelet:







Dial will be untouched,so the hands:



Most of the time,pushers gaskets became hardened,and stick pushers in action,so time to change:



Set up not so bad:



6138B seems to be in great shape,in fact no oil or grease nowhere...:



The greatest difference with 6139: the additional module for 12th hours:



In the baskets :



Mainspring barrel lubricating:



Done !!!



Ok,timegrapher says it's good :



Feels good !!
