Due to a shortage of OEM 330W16GN00 I have reworked the existing until one appears or I decide to fit a Cousins equivalent XMD330.844

Beautiful dial, I thought it was the same as the 6106 dial under that crystal. The crystal looks great too, I'm in the same boat and need 3-4 of those 330's.

Looks fantastic Don, well done! There's always the next project, although it's hard to beat that blue dial.

Spectacular. Seiko more than any other watch brand has the most spectacular blue dials from that era. Wear it in good health.
