Hi Reddit! I didn’t think I’d ever let this one go, but I’ve got another watch in my crosshairs so I’d love to see this go on to another enthusiast to enjoy. For sale is a vintage Seiko 6309-7049 from April 1982, all original except for a new old stock crown and Yobokies flat sapphire. I purchased this one years ago and it was a true tool watch at that time. It had some pretty decent battle scars, the crystal was scuffed up and the movement needed a service. I sent it off to Jack at IWW and the worst of the scars were polished out (while still leaving most of the vintage wear / character), the movement was fully serviced, the crown was replaced with a new old stock crown and I had him swap on a flat Yobokies sapphire for better clarity of that awesome patina dial and hands. At the time I didn’t realize that Jack outsources all of his movement services, so when I received it back from him I sent it to my watchmaker to check it out and pressure test it to 10ATM. It checked out and passed the pressure test with no trouble. Overall the watch is in great vintage shape and presents very well, please refer to the pictures for the best description. The bezel insert is in very good shape, the orange dial text has faded to a wonderful yellow and the hands have just enough of that “black funk” to let this one show off its age. If you are not big on the Seiko black funk, I have an option for you if you read on. The bezel stiffly rotates bidirectionally. The movement runs well within spec (between -10 to -11.5s/d on the wrist and between -4 to -10s/d dial up, your mileage may vary) and has strong power reserve. The NOS crown screws down nicely. The only quirk (which is apparently common with these movements) is that occasionally when you press in the crown after setting the time, the minute hand may jump forward by 1 to 3 minute ticks. It never bothered me, if it happened I usually just pulled it back out, wound it back to the correct time and pushed it back in. The caseback is scarred up from a lifetime of heavy handed watch makers, but as you can see the Seiko wave and serial engraving are crystal clear.

If you would prefer to have a clean handset, **I have a complete set of NOS 6309 hands (hour/minute/second) still in their original Seiko packaging that I can include with the sale for an additional $75**. I have many, many positive references on Watchuseek and Reddit. Please message me with any questions and thanks for looking!
