Ok guys here's my latest batch incoming, all I know is that they are 6309 movements, but I can't find out what type of cases they are, I've done some looking this morning but have drawn a blank at the moment so any help so I can get a heads up as to possible spare parts locating before they arrive cheers

my guess: Seiko 6309-836A

I think these are Seiko Sports 5 6309-836x with 6309A movement. AFAIK there were many Seiko 5 automatics with Sports on the dial and they came with different movements like 6106, 6119 and also 6309...

Cheers guys it was the case model number that I couldnt figure out, as for restoring them, not too much of a problem, just time and the right tools, and some out the box thinking to problem solving, im looking at the bezels and wondering what size they are incase they need replacing.

The cases on those are 37 or 38mm IIRC. The first two don't look too bad to me.

Looks like a Ramon EBAY score.

I have never seen a vintage Seiko 5 Sports posted on the old Network 54 forum or the current forum that didn't come from Ramon.

If anyone has a NOS one or one that was not a parts watch I would like to see it.

I wonder what market they were originally destined for and why the only ones seen (in the last 10 years) are totally trashed.

I've seen this guy's stuff on eBay. I can't help but wonder where he finds so many wrecked divers. And how do they get like that? They look like they've been in a cement mixer.
