    Currently own a 6309 given to me brand new back in 1983 as high school graduation gift. Want to know where I can have the face restored, the luminous part no longer glows. I'm in California. Other than that watch still works, still my daily wear.

    Hi All, For sale is the cool 6309-5059 Automatic from 1977. It has a really cool iridescent dial and funky shape. It features the Seiko 6309 automatic winding movement (same as in the iconic 6309 Turtle diver) with quick set for both day and date. It's a great watch for someone starting out in...

    Greetings! At long last, my slim 6309 was delivered last Thursday and I wanted to share some photos of the watch as received and after preliminary inspection. I found this specimen in the Philippines in March, just as the global lockdown was enacted. All I had to tide away my time were photos...

    I’m brand new to this forum. I stumbled upon The Watch Site while researching Seiko 6309 7290 dials. I picked a 7290 and wanted to see if the dial was original or aftermarket. I initially thought the dial was original as it appears to have the correct 12:00 markers - triangles come to a point...

    Hello all, I was wondering if it's possible to put a 6309 movement into a 7002 diver case? Other than the diver, there doesn't seem to be another Seiko watch that shares the 7002 movement so I'd like to make a transplant if it's possible. Thank you, John

    I've recently purchased a Seiko 5 with a 6309a movement in it. The issue listed by the seller was that the face was loose, so that was an easy fix, but the crown also wont seem to set properly. The crown will change the day and date but wont change the hour and minute hands. It also wont click...

    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've seen it stated many places that a 6309 crown should turn at least 1.5 complete revolutions when screwing down. However, some people post that their crowns take three or even four turns to screw down. Is this possible? I own three 6309s and their crowns all take just over two complete...

    I'm contemplating a TST build and will need a 6309 movement. (4 o'clock crown version) I'm looking for one that has been recently serviced and is keeping good time. I'll consider a whole watch but it's primarily the movement (including crown of course) that I'm chasing. Please let me...
