I completed this very late last night my "Golgo TST".
I picked up a really well used 6309 not long back which clearly had been someones every day watch, battered and bruised and used as a every day watch should be used, it was in a pretty poor and filth state but threads and sealing faces were perfect so the ideal candidate(IMO) for a TST mod, so I prepared/machined the case and then just waited for that "something" to come along.

Fast forward to yesterday and a package arrived from Rob/Monsterwatch (IMO Rob is the best source to go to for new modern genuine Seiko parts, GREAT quality and VERY fair prices).

A few bits in the package but the main parts for this TST were, Golgo dial, Golgo second hand, Golgo chapter ring, Golgo bezel, Golgo shroud, Golgo strap and signed crown.

I had a 7548 movement on test in the spares dept, one of my own "Big" crowns as i have a slight technical problem with the oem crown at the moment a domed AR coated sapphire crystal, H/M SBBN007 hands and a new set of gaskets completed all the needs to build it up.

Again JMO i like it and I normally prefer the stainless look, the black finish on the shroud is amazingly good, i have read that the black coating on these shrouds can chip so i will see how that goes but at this moment it looks superb.

Again thanks Rob for sourcing and supplying the parts required.

One of my favourites so far, it's the black, and the ever so little red. It's the MM 300m that I'm not a fan of, just a bit rigid with things like that, but a stunning package all round. I'm wondering where the 6309 came from? I love them all dirty!
Regards, David

NICE ! Next time I will send some black screws too.
Do!! ...not to revive the heated debate on Allen vs Phillips, etc. but IMHO the grey hex screws are a bit drab in such an otherwise stunning watch :sleep:

Bravo John --do you ever sleep?.................Philip
