  1. Hi Guys, I inherited my Grandfathers Seiko 6139-6002, he was gifted it in the early 70’s so I know it’s currently all original. Unfortunately it’s seen some action as is quit worn, but that means it was well loved! The Crystal is scratched, the chapter ring and red part of the bezel is faded and the crown is pitted. The case looks like it’s had a couple of knocks here and there as there are a few indentations and the bracelet is on the small side as links removed to fit his wrist. So now my dilemma: I would really like to get it recommissioned, but know there are a lot of fake parts about. I’m guessing aftermarket crystals won’t be a problem, but what about the crown and stem...possibly the spring? Are good reproductions out there? (I’m ok with this). Should I avoid replacing the bezel and chapter ring? - I presume aftermarket exists, but are clearly repro? - as it stands, it shows its history and hasn’t been messed with. I don’t mind patina. The bracelet: should I just try and source another original link, or should I just get an Uncle Seiko bracelet? Can the original Seiko clasp be fitted to the Uncle Seiko bracelet? I fully understand this is down to personal preference, but what would you do in this situation?...and what’s the deal with some of the aftermarket parts mentioned? - Are they ok, and if so, where’s the best place to obtain them? I would obviously prefer genuine, but I would assume these are becoming harder to find? Many thanks, Andy
