I picked this up about 5 years ago thinking I would one day fix it up to wear.
I found it again in my garage buried for years in a box with several other Seiko's I forgot I had. So I have a couple of questions for the experts. First of all the seller at the time told me the dial, bezel and hands were original. is there any way to tell? I know servicing a chrono is expensive and I am not sure if I am going to bother if it is not original. I appreciate any help!


Here is a close up of the dial:

I'd say the dial and hands look original. The case, however has been polished where it should have a brushed finish.

I'm no expert, but I like this model and recently added a second one I got from Stefan (picture). Yours looks great, if you want it to have a brushed finish plenty of options with guys here on the forum who can help you there.

a great ufo shape... dial , hands are original. I'm not sure with the insert bezel. The case perhaps already did a professional polished

Even with the over-polish it looks great (and the work was well done). Nice watch, you should wear it.

I've had three of those. Still have one. Yours looks all original. It isn't that difficult to put a brushed finish back on the watch. Or you can have it beadblasted, which is what I did to one of mine. I don't know who services Seiko chronographs anymore. Perhaps someone here on the forum has had good experience with someone they can refer you to.
