RESTORE KING SEIKO 6105 W/SHARK BRACELET

cp-sd001.jpg (101207 bytes)

THE BEST CONCLUSION WAS TO LEAVE THE ORIGINAL DIAL AS IT WAS.

WHEN I WENT WATCH SHOPPING SUNDAY AND MONDAY WEARING THIS
BEAUTY, I HAD SO MANY QUESTIONS ASKED .. LIKE

“WHAT KIND OF WATCH IS THAT?” 

IT TRULY IS FANTASTIC. I HATE TO SELL HER, BUT, THEN AGAIN,
HOW ELSE CAN I FEED MY NEED TO RESTORE WATCHES
WITHOUT BUYING NEW OLD ONES!

THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST VINTAGE DESIGN THAT WAS EVER MADE
AND THE BEST I HAVE DONE THUS FAR… WELL.. UM… UH..

I THOUGHT THE 1960 INVICTA I RESTORED AND WROTE AN ESSAY ABOUT WAS THE BEST…

I THOUGHT THE 1968 BULOVA OCEANOGRAPHER WITH ORANGE MARKERS AND SILVER DIAL WAS THE BEST I RESTORED..

I THOUGHT THE 1959 BUCHERER DIVE AUTOMATIC ETA WITH THE YELLOW ARROW BAND WAS THE BEST I ..

I THOUGHT THE….

…YOU GET IT.!

A BIG STREAMLINED LOOK IS WHAT THIS WATCH IS ABOUT.

cp-sd007.jpg (104737 bytes)

WITHOUT THE DIVE SUIT EXTENDER
BAND IS 7 1/2 TO 7 3/4

IF YOU REQUIRE A LARGER SIZE I CAN ADD A COOL
SPRINGED EXTENSION. THEY LOOK GREAT AND EXTEND
THE BAND TO 3/4 TO 1 1/4.

FOR A TOTAL OF   8 3/4

FURTHER, IF YOU WANT A LOGO, NAME PLATE
OR OTHER NEAT ATTACHMENT – I CAN ADD IT TO
THE EXTENSION LIKE I DID WITH THE MARINE CORP EMBLEM ON THE TAG

SMOOTH & CLEAN. THE CROWN LOCKS
AND THE MOVEMENT IS BETTER THAN THE CASE!

WE PRESSURE TESTED THE WATCH AND IT HELD
BUT WE DO NOT WARRANTY WATER PROOFING
DUE TO MANY FACTORS.
