  1. WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Howdy! Long time no thread like this, so why not share with you all a 6105 relume I did not long ago, I thought. The dial had some lume rot and the markers were a little sorry, so I removed the matt finish that was in poor shape and I was left with a pretty smart dial to work with. I then...

    Hi All, I'm selling my Seiko 6105-8009 from June, 1970. This is the slim case version of Seiko's famous 6105 dive watch. This is the resist version, which is the rarest of the 6105s, at least according to some enthusiasts. It was fully serviced in June by a watchmaker well known to this forum...

    So, I know that everyone on this forum agrees that brightly glowing lume is the most important part of a watch (and original bracelets are overrated). I mean we buy Seikos because the lume is almost as bright as Rolex lume, and we can't afford Rolexes, right? Most of us ditch our original dials...

    Hi! Question for those of you who are used to looking at restoration candidate watches: When you you see gunk like this on hands and markers, do you assume that it's surface gunk that can brushed off, or corrosion that has eaten into the metal? I'm being offered this watch, and I don't know...

    Hey, First question is, is Randall Benson still around? I have a 6105 8119 that he serviced and converted to a screw down crown that needs servicing. 6309 just needs movement service. Any suggestions on who else I can send these to for service? Thanks!

    I am restoring my 74yr old fathers Seiko 6105-8119 watch. He wore this watch almost daily for most of his adult life. He purchased in DC in 1972. As such the bezel has seen better days and the crystal is pretty scratched. I have the crystal taken care of, I need a good condition bezel insert or...

    Steam Punk 6105 {now drilled lug holes} A couple weeks ago, I started working on a 6105 restoration. This one was sort of started from the inside out. I bought a very nice movement, dial, handset and crown from Guy here on the forum. I didn't have a case for it though. Normally, that...

    SEIKO 6105-8110/8119 crown, unused (NOS), complete with gasket inside. I can't confirm the gasket condition but it still looks very "fat" and would provide good sealing pressure against the crown tube. Paypal US$ 80 shipped via Registered Mail.

    Today I successfully found a workaround for replacing the crown seal on the 6105: I wrapped the stem with teflon tape and added in a little silicone grease and bob's your uncle. I pressure tested it for 5 minutes under 6 BAR and it held like a champ. I don't dive with this one but I am no longer...

    Cheers! I have just had the most bizarre experience when my local watchmaker presented my beloved Seiko 6105 after a standard pressure testing. IT WAS IN PIECES! Chrystal, glass, Bezel and insert, dial and hands were just loose. Anyone who would like to share any thoughts on why and what...

    FS: Dagaz Typhoon T2 LNIB £190 UK Sale SOLD! Thanks SCWF and buyer! I just bought this watch last week on watchuseek (original listing here). Just didn't click with me, possibly as it looks a bit too chunky for my 6.5 inch wrists and possibly because it's very much a modern spin on a classic...
