Offering my uncompleted project. This started out as one of my projects to build a typical hippy watch with the pure hippy look of the 60's & 70's. I thought it would be appropriate with my light blue leisure suit and high heel shoes. But,alas even the best plans can sometime go awry.
The NOS Salvatori Shaggy Suede hippy band was picked up at a watch show along with quite a few more. The rest were sold pretty fast on ebay for $14.95 to $17.95. The Seiko had been in my accumulation for a long while. Not sure where it came from, but I was saving it in case one of my 6105 's needed parts. It runs with just a shake and the day/date change. After I attached it to the strap, I started to set the time. Just my luck. I pulled the crown and stem out. I tried to put it back in, but now I can't set the time or day. The date will change by pushing the crown in. My local watchmaker won't touch a SEIKO . It may be an easy fix but I don't work on watches at all. It's not worth it to me to send it off for repair. Besides, I never liked hippies anyway.
