Nice one CUZ, it will look great and you will have one of your own.
I heard of that legend....WOW...I think Your right...COWABUNGA......I'll have to go to Waimea Bay and catch a HUMUHUMUNUKUNUKUAPUWA'A in his Honor. And all this time I thought he was wearing a 6105-8110Aloha. Great pickup. Perhaps it is the Hawaiian Legendary Surfer Eddie Aikau's "Eddie Would Go" long lost 6105-8119 and the watch was dredged from the bottom of the ocean and ended up at the pawn shop. Legend has it that the waffle strap broke and the his Seiko 6105-8119 was forever lost when he was saving a swimmer as a lifeguard on the North Shore.
I'll be honest...When I opened the case back I was afraid of what I would find... like maybe an octopus was going to grab me ..... BUT , surprise , surprise , surprise ,...it was very clean..no rust , salt , or sharks . The gasket was even supple and doing its job .Nice find !!!
But that replacement dial and hands ? I'm not a fan of "wabbie" but I think better than after market ?
Imo the 811X takes some beating
Yeah, it takes a bit more patience, but way more willing to haggle and take offers (which at times felt offensively low, but we're high enough).great info Twall3
