5 years ago today I posted my 1st restoration. I wasn’t collecting at the time but I came across my old Seiko 7A28-7029 in a drawer. It still ran but was in bad shape. The pushers wouldn’t work and the crystal was hammered and the bracelet was all scuffed up and broken. Thanks to the great people here on the forums I was able to get tips and help restoring my 1st Seiko. Complete overhaul, new crystal, and a little TLC. I beat the heck out of this watch for about 20 years. I wore it daily working heavy construction, when I had my flooring business, wore it when I went to swimming at the beach. This is the toughest movement I’ve ever seen. Since then I’ve restored a few hundred watches and looking forward to continue with this Seiko fascination.
