And that is exactly what happened , thanks JJ:thumbsup: 

Apologies badgersdad :)

Why don't we have 2 threads one for watches and one for Parnis. One can be called wruw and feature thinks like seiko and rolex and casio etc. And one can be called what are you stroking. Which can feature people stroking cats dogs and their Parnis.

It looks superb its gen.

I liked the watch that much I bought another one (not working) to see how easy it would be to refurbish the original purchase.

The dial is almost impossible to refurbish as it has a decal/transfer on which over time can lift off the surface of the dial.

My two 6205-8940 were (I think) made on the very same day as there is just 416 apart on their production figures. My guess is that Seiko in the 1960's were making way more than 416 watches per day.

They are a great little watch, funny how a watch can get 'under your skin'

p.s. I got the other 'donor/experiment' watch working with a little tlc.

Well done. Its amazing what seiko were churning out in the 60s and then the bullit they fired into the swiss watch industry in '69. The rest as they say is history. Pretty much forcing the swiss to play in their own back yard squeezing into top of the market for a smaller share at vast profits and lower output. The rest of the swiss firms just dying out. Like a strangle hold on their oxygen supply. Clever.

There are two sorts of watch people: those who get excited by kanji dates wheels and those who don't. I do. I'm not proud of that but I can't help it. :biggrin:

cool watch, is that the one that Brucie fixed the logo on? It would look good on a watch gecko winchester.

Twice now I've started a WRUW thread to have someone else start one a minute later which becomes the thread. It's there a new rule I'm missing or something? Feeling invisible... 

Sorry, did you say something ?

Yes, that's the one. I'll have a look at the Winchester. Didn't you just buy one of those you aren't using? I think the sarb is 20mm lugs though...
