Chris’ Seiko 6138-0011 overhaul
Posted on May 20, 2014
I was sent this from a very nice guy in the states that brought a lovely Seiko 6139-6002 off me from ebay. That had a little issue and came home for a little fix (autowind was not working efficiently). The UFO came along for the ride!
And now looking much nicer for a little bit of attention…
THESE ARE BEFORE PICTURES!
For me (and luckily Chris agreed!) that case was too shiny, having had most of the original finish polished away at some point in it’s history.
The lume was fairly bad too, with lume spilling out over the minute hand and the dial looking a little tired.
Scratches on the crystal were not so bad and easily lifted out.
