I have a leaky Seiko 4205 that is in need of a drying out and at least some sort of waterproof fixing, not necessarily 150 meter but at least a pool swim. The watch is not a jewel so I'm looking for a relatively reasonable watchman that won't keep it for 6 months. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Stating your location would be a good start. This is an international forum with people from all over the world, so what suits Joe Bloggs in Morocco might not suit you.

Maybe you location and some pictures and a little more discussion would do it for you.
Let people know who you are and it will start going for you.

Any watchsmith worth his salt will be able to waterproof it for you, the stem problem might be a missing o ring which will explain the leaky watch. Sealing it for pool swims etc is a doddle, but now drying it out is altogether a different thing, depending on how wet it has got, if its just a bit of misting you should be ok, if however you have completly swamped it, then you will need it stripped and serviced ok.

Just bumping this up guys! Any estimate what a complete service should cost?[/QUOTE]
Any suggestions where I should sent it to? I'm in Pennsylvannia and brought it to the only watch repair near me and he said he couldn't do it.

I sent a 4205 to the Seiko Service Center in NJ a few months back. It was 115.00 for a complete service and pressure test. Took about 3-4 weeks if I remember correctly. Jack at IWW does excellent work. He has restored several watches for me.
