Hi guys,


My 6105-8000 arrived today from California. My 6105-8110 is stuck in customs (came from the UK).


Please feel free to criticize. It was purchased from a seller who claimed to not know much about the history
of the watch (always makes me go 'hmmm')


They are [size=1em]one of those Feebay sellers that supposedly goes around buying stuff from estate sales.
I have no idea if there are aftermarket parts on this puppy and I haven't cracked the caseback yet.


Only reason I'm suspicious is it looks way too clean for a 45 year old watch.

It looks genuine to me. If the hands and dial have been re-done with luminous paint, it was done really well.

Great catch, Dave! Better give it some wrist time before the 8110 arrives and you got yourself a real cunundrum! You are so lucky that one hasn't arrived yet! :57:

There still seems to be some jems to be found on Ebay. Just before Christmas I managed to snag a 6105-8110 that was located in Melbourne. Scratched up crystal and bezel, but an absolutely pristine dial and hands set. When I opened it up the movement was un-touched :) . I serviced it myself and replaced the crystal and bezel insert. On a WJean strap it looks beautiful. Have to get around to putting up some images.
