Hahaha sooo subtle


So I have many to pick from but I'll post some I haven't shown for a while


Notice the "scuba" on the blue dial, JDM piece. I also noticed that its SEL contrary to int'l market ones like my black ones that are just folded end links
[/IMG]

Here's the project trio, one capacitor to change, one needs a clean up and a capa. and the third is kinda water damaged for parts. A great case for a mod eventually. I also wanted the bracelet parts. Not so easy to find nowadays

the spectrum today...

Today is David's birthday and we took him out for a nice lunch with a lot of family. Wait until you guys see the crazy burger Zoodles had today... Wow!

Here is my oldest functioning Seiko which I am wearing today:


Probably 1956-1948? Post WW II with a Swiss handwind marked as Seikosha...


Originally restored by Jack and IWW. The plated brass case was replated, the dial cleaned, new crystal, and a service. Then recently there was a problem with the crown stem so Al took care of it.

Here's a couple of 'em...

My Casio Oceanus twins...OC108L-7AV - white/OC-108L-1A - black. Great pair of watches, set me back $125 for the pair: sapphire crystal, alarm, textured dials, good lume and 100m water resist, genuine leather OEM straps. 2008







...one of which I put on a Watchadoo bracelet, and I rotate straps on the white face...
