hey guys, was andrewbp on the previous forum, ive been on a hiatus for a while because helping my elderly father at his house in a different city.

well today i went to my house where other family members are staying and went to retrieve my seikos since its been a while since i have tinkered with them, as i was going to buy some parts for one ive been wanting to fix up for a while, a 6105-8110 model. a nice 1972 model that was all factory and never molested, all it needed was new diver straps, a new crystal because of it being scratched deep and a ball detent and oring for the bezel. well im more than pissed because there were a few people in the house visiting while i was away and now the watch has grown feet and disappeared, and i searched the whole house for this watch today. it was sitting in the small white box that coserv ships the watches back in so it was not out in plain sight. i cant believe someone would do this to a watch body that just looks average. now im a watch thats worth a few hundred, and i didnt put it in the gunsafe because i figured a watch body in a white box would be perfectly safe in a house.

sorry for the rant, im just aggrivated right now and i know yall would understand my :mad: . guess now ill have to see if its worth fixing this 6619 i have

My Friend that truly sucks.Maybe a bit detective work and CSI involvement would help.
I dont think ive ever had the misfortune of having a watch taken from me but im sure i know how you must feel.Sorry for the loss my friend.
Ouch! I know how being robbed feels. Just had 1500 dollar bill from my mechanic because theives stole parts off my Kawasaki. It makes you crazy, but keep your cool if possible. :) Theres no excuse for stealing another mans watch!

Well that does suck, Andrew. I cannot tell you the number of times I have turned around and gone back into the house because I realized I left watches laying out, not locked inside my safe. We occasionally have service people in the house. I'd like to believe I could trust everyone, but the best way to keep some people trustworthy is to remove temptation.
Sorry to hear of your loss. I know the feeling. Probably the worst I have ever felt in my life. My place was broken in to a couple years ago and had many things stolen including a Victorinox dive master 500. On the flip side my wife felt so bad for me she let my buy more watches one of which was a Seiko landmonster, my fisrt seiko. I now have 4. I hope you get your watch back.
Ugh, check your local pawn shops. The dude probably got less than $100 for it..
First time I have ever knowingly used the thumbs down symbol on a message because that just makes me
How/why would a visitor to your home steal from you??? :eek:
