I picked these up today from a person that responded to a local forum ad I had placed for wanted older Seiko divers running or not. I was surprised to get an email from someone with a picture of these two and a 7t36 which I was not interested in the chronometer. After going out to look at them the individual that had them told me he was the original owner, watched had never been serviced. The 6309 was purchased in a military PX in Europe early 80s and the Arnie was purchased in Maine in 86. Been sitting in a safe for 20-25 years. Aside from a few crystal scratches(Can that be buffed out?) They are in excellent condition. The lume on the hands and dial match. While I paid perhaps a little more than I wanted to feel I did get a great deal! The 6309 actually has a german/English date wheel have not seen one of those. Anywho pleased with these!

Gene...stop buying...how is that possible...we all say that ....but it is seldom done...too many different models...but you are correct...buy ones you like and do the repairs and service them...it can get a little out of control unless you do...God Bless John

Maybe flip one or two to finance the next buy ;)

I've just bought a Seiko 1/100th second chrono just to play with it. I don't think I want to keep it, but the whirring 1/100th hand has fascinated me :)
