Excited to wear my first ever Seiko Diver again. It was given to me by my father for my High School graduation a decade ago (it stopped running shortly afterward). He got it from a friend while in the Army, however, didn't wear it as he already wore a 6309-7040. My dad wore his own 6309 daily since he got it whether: working on cars, piloting aircraft, doing home improvements, or farming. It got beat up! He decided to retire it recently. This particular 6309 has also seen some heavy use with dings, dents, and wabi but... is surprisingly nice. The local watchmaker couldn't source a flat mineral crystal (was surprised to hear) and buffed the acrylic one on it. He also polished the caseback. Sometime I hope to get it relumed, but for now it's great as is. I think the new leather faux alligator strap compliments it nicely. Just thought I'd share some pictures.
