 :pimp; nice SW. how do you like the stretch band? i like to wear my watches loose, i tried the one like you have, sold it, it was just too tight. your dial looks nice, a careful dial cleaning will help the lume behind the numbers, do not try it yourself! i had BWG do mine and it looks great. you probably have to get the hands relumed, that can be a delicate operation but it is WORTH it, big improvement in looks. you need a complete service, if it hasnt been done yet. gaskets turn to tar after 30 years. even after service do not get it under water!!! if you want to swim/dive buy a NEW seiko dive watch. dont risk your vintage SW.

That is a nice specimen Robin! Was it serviced? Where did you get it from?

 Hi butch,
Got in on eBay. Seller said it was serviced.  Not opened her up. The bracelet is new Asian cheapo. Would love something more period.

Hi Jon,

Thanks, the bracelet is an Asian copy and not stretch unfortunately. Would love something more period. You may be right about the hands.
