This watch was very recently completely overhauled and restored and is ready to go. Here is the description of the restoration from the user I purchased the watch from: Every part of this watch is original Seiko. Absolutely no aftermarket parts were used in the restoration of this timepiece. This is the international/US version of this watch with a twist. The dial is a late JDM version dial dating to October 76 (See pic of dial date code 6O). While the dial has some patina and shows a few small touched ups, it is in fair to good overall condition with all sub dial text and main dial text and second hash marks readable. New seals installed throughout along with a new crystal. The case, outer bezel and bracelet are in excellent overall condition with reasonably sharp case lines and no major dings or scratches. Bracelet is the correct Z038 fishbone used on the international versions of this watch and should fit a reasonable sized wrist. Pushers and crown are original and in excellent condition. H/M hands are the black arrow with white tip type used on international/US watches although some early JDM versions of this watch used the arrow hands. Hand lume is original. Sweep second hand is original. Sub dial hands are brand new Seiko NOS replacements correct for this model. Day wheel is Spanish/English. Case and bracelet have been treated to a light polish with refinish of the brushing on the bracelet. Movement is the venerable Seiko 6138B cal 21 jewel and has been completely disassembled, cleaned, and re-assembled using high grade Swiss lubricants and timed on a Time Grapher. I have also enhanced the movement by replacing the upper MS arbor bushing with a jewel. In my opinion, one of the prettiest Seiko chronographs of the 1970s.

I have installed the Uncle Seiko bracelet for this model, but the original fishbone bracelet and endlinks will be included with the sale. I would like to get $600 for this watch shipped to CONUS. Thanks for looking.
