Davids Seiko 6139-8020 for restore!
Posted on August 11, 2014
Well this Seiko 6139-8020 came in for a service…..ah, that might be tricky.
This has had a hard life clearly, but it means something to someone, so to restore this is a pleasure.
Absolutely no chance of servicing the movement, so I take another 6139B that I have and we carry on to service and use that.
I’m looking to keep as much of this watch as original as possible. It is never going to shine like new as the dial and hands have really deteriorated from the water exposure.
The lume to the dial and hands was really bringing the watch down, so that was all removed with new lume put back.
My donor movement had the wrong day wheel being French and English, so I replaced that with another of the correct style to the original as can be seen.
