A couple of weeks ago I found out that Pete K in Australia was looking for a reasonably difficult Seiko NOS part which i just happened to have so I emailed Pete to let him know i had one and wanted no $$$ or trade etc as he has helped me on numerous occasions with hard/impossible to get NOS parts for projects etc and always a fair price and a fast service.

Well today completly out of the blue a small package arrived with some beautiful goodies in it and .........wait for it...............a NOS 6105-811X second hand !!!!!!!!!!!!!


Jeeeeze what can you say to something like that but THANKS !!! :) :)


I've said it before and i will say it again the WIS guys on this forum are in the main the best guys i have ever come across in any walk of life, thanks again to ALL. :)

and just Smiles, appearing as if he wants to talk to it LOL get the Picture MR. Tiger?




Within the next few days, Clayton, AKA 150mm will be Posting a 6105-8000 Creation that PETE Built, I will be holding back, saying anything else about Pete

that does not look for Recognition, or relishes a "I'm just a country type of Watchmaker, and Seiko Parts Man" to Try and RESPECT that Profile IMHO SCWF is Full


of Fine Men GOOD Men and then a few very SPECIAL Men to me PETE KHUN is on this list,Very close if not at the top.
