Wow, this is exceptional. I have to admit that I also almost bid on this one to complement my Proof version (6020) and for the bracelet which looked original. But I’m negotiating for a JDM Pogue with a seller and I just have to learn to say no. So I did! But I’m thrilled that you got it! Please keep us up on the restoration!

Must admit I’d have been all over it for the money.

Wonder what the story with it is, don’t think I’ve seen even mint ones with such vibrant colours inside. Looking at the fade and wear on the bezel Id guess it had an overhaul internally in recent (ish) years, maybe at Seiko or a repairer that was able to get the NOS parts. Maybe had the whole lot done as even the day wheel is the exact same vibrancy. Normally the outer bezels are way tougher to fade than the orange inside. My one has a lot less exterior fade on the bezel but is nothing like as vibrant inside.

Either way be a very cool project.

Perfect candidate for a NOS bezel. Wonder if there’s any about still.

Late to the party, wow! That red looks amazing, everything under the crystal looks better than expected, really. Just like John, thought it would look great without the blurry crystal, but not that good. Maybe it lived in a dry climate, or maybe it did go through a professional service that helped preserve the insides when the outside surfaces suggest that much use.
Congratulations David !! Nice find, but even more rewarding that you get to sort it out yourself.

Ps: ...can’t wait to see it

And now the bad...The 0 Marker is gone on the internal ring, Pusher has corroded and the pusher springs are stuck in the case. I'll leave the ring and pusher as is. This watch has a filthy exterior and a near pristine interior...The crown is snapped off and won't be easy to remove the stump if at all. Now Waiting for the crystal etc...

That interior bezel is exceptional. So many have the paint chipping off.
