Hi Guys, I'm interested in 6105 all original and untouched, a seller offers to me this 6105, He says that watch is complete original with untouched dial and hands, but in pics seems that dial has been relumed... I'm not an expert on vintage seikos so I need some advice :D

What do you think?!

Its hard to say really whether thats been relumed or not imo.

Sometimes original lume seems to spread a little and can look like a relume.

What does make me wonder a little is the fact the hands show some corrosion but the lume does not.

Basically not helped you much :)

Either way it looks fine to me, if the price is right then go for it...

if you are going to "chance" it, pay for it as if it was a relume (ie needing a new dial) and expect it to be a relume upon receipt. if it is, you got a fair deal and it if isn't, you got a great deal.

Looks all original to me. I have a few that have never been touched with the lume high up on the minute indice walls.

I can't imagine the person that was luming these dials 40 years ago for a $1 an hour was too concerned about how perfect a collector thought it should be.

Mine is all original but relumed, fully serviced and water proofed to original specs. I was more interested in having a fully functional watch and am totally happy with it
