This is a look at my original "super beater" projects...a trashed 6309 case and over buffed caseback that is sporting a 6119 hacking movement...!!!...the dial is a simple custom created and printed paper piece...the hands I picked up for their "sterile" appearance and again the crown is an aftermarket Triplock which was secured into the case with precision drilling and sealed using JB Weld epoxy....Probably the first watch I would wear for any construction project that would make even a G-Shock sweat...!!!. Worn in the ocean, hot tubs and saunas with no leakage....
When I started collection Seikos about 40 years ago I had never even owned a 6309 but was quickly cured with the purchase, repairs and reconstruction of perhaps 50 over the years...having a friend with seemingly unlimited original parts for 6309's helped as I went thru the years...I have pristine 6309 diver that occasionally gets worn but have always been fond of this wonderful and robust watch...!!!
