I found an old Seiko 66-7109 watch from the mid-70's.
The glass is cracked, body is scuffed and the crown is pretty worn down. But amazingly, I gave it a few turns and it's still running quite well (so far).

Wondering if it's worth bringing in somewhere to clean and fix. Is this an expensive process? Any places in Toronto that you would recommend?

Been following this thread for awhile. Happy to report I'm the proud owner of a BLNR. Think I've started an addiction. Hardest part will be keeping it from my wife :P

Those GO photos don't do it justice... although I'd pick the Senator Sixties if I have to choose...

For awhile there, I didn't care about the watch and was more intrigued about the background :P

So true, the dial has a very subtle sparkle that I could not capture with my camera.

GWC on W. Georgia, which I believe is owned by Lugaro.

The vintage Seiko bug has got me... Here are my 2 newest additions.

A rare 1969 Seiko 6119-6050 on the left and a 1983 Seiko 6309-7049 on the right. :)

I love your watches. May I ask how much you paid for your 6309? I want to get one down the line but I don't whether I should buy this one or a brand new Turtle.

I would also like to know if you used the"Bay" or another online watch distributor that is good for affordables?
