That is a classic, and I like that better than any of the new ones.

It's a 1967 with a 552 movement. A true classic.

Seiko repair question

I've got my old Seiko Navigator - it's about 22 years old

The battery typically lasts 5 years and I always sent it back to the authorized repair shop in Canada - but now that I'm in the states I'm not sure where best to send it to

I understand that being a 200m waterproof it has a nitrogen purge in it

Who have you had experience with in the states for the battery replacement

If it has an escape valve, you'll likely see it on the aide of the case. Not real common on a watch rated for 200M- moreso on 800-1000M rated pieces.

1000m? Wow. What the hell is the point of that?
Marketing is everything I suppose...

Here's my other daily driver, but to be honest, feel kinda bad, haven't put it on since I got my Seamaster...

I didn't look at your photos. Not enough guns, knives, cash, or, ah, batons.

Low Budget Watches

Here are the latest editions to my Poor Mans collection.

A pair of Orient Aviators



A Bulova Marine Star on a 007 Nato. Watch isnt new but the band is.


Invicta that I got cheap but hated until I put it on a black Nato. Now one of my favorites.



A Swiss Legend Commander



An Android from Chronoshark dot com



And my newest work out equipment... A Swiss Legend Tungsten Chrono also from ChronoShark. Way cool look to the polished Tungsten and with an ETA quartz and a saphire crystal how can you go wrong at $189

This one looks good as an outdoor watch...bright, big numbers, rubber band and stuff...but unfortunately too big for my tiny girly wrist.
