Seiko 6309-7049

Post by Matt » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:54 pm

Good evening all, I'm seeking help with the restoration of a Seiko 6309-7049. I purchased the watch in 1979 and after many years of faithful service I gave it to a shop for restoration. Afterwards the watch suffered from condensation and poor time keeping. I took it to a second shop that replaced the movement, timer ring and the seals. Although the condensation issue was solved that work used substandard parts a evidenced from the second hand falling off.
I would really like to get the watch restored but I don't have any idea who to trust with the work. I retained the original movement but I need a recommendation(s) are where to turn for the work. It's my sincere hope someone out there can me get my 6309 back on my wrist.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thx

I had them work on my SeaDweller, a 1965 Seiko, and a few others. They will get it done right.
