At last I've obtained a blue 6119-7173 to go with my silver model. This is just like the watch I wore through my teens so it feels great wearing it :)

I don't want to do anything to this one though as it looks nicely original, except for the second hand - I have never seen that one before, does anyone recognize it :confused:

Nice transformation on that one Woolf.

The second hand on the blue variant is commonly found on other 6119 sport 70m models. As you suspect, I don't think they are native to that particular watch.

Thanks for sharing!

Nice Rally! The second hand is from a 6119-602X watch.

The second hans is not for that 6119. The reference 6119-8300 is very rare.
Very nice watch
I just checked the case back and it's actually a 6119-7173. It was advertised as a 6119-8300 but this was obviously a mistake :mad:

I can live with that though, it was just the pretty face I was after :)

I use to be a swiss only snob but I have really grown to like the diversity Seiko has to offer...this is another good example of why.

Woolf- Beautiful watch and congrats on finding your lovely ! just a quick question though, are my eyes deceiving me or is there a small piece of lume missing from your minute hand ? I know you mentioned that you were not going to do anything to this one (perhaps you were referring to major restoration or modding), but if the minute hand were to be replaced, I am sure your baby would benefit from a new gasket on the case back for good measure and piece of mind. Just a suggestion if the lume does need attention.
