RESTORED VALUE
$2500 TO $3500 USD
WITH ALL WORKS & APPRAISAL

DEC 17 2017

I DID NOT USE THE 6309 7040 HAND SET
INSTEAD I RESTORED THE ORIGINAL 6105 8000 SET

DECEMBER 6TH 2017 5:29 pm
discovered a replacement for the auto date set. if you recall, when i dissembled this beauty for service i discovered a failed part i was unable to find replacement for, today i traded some old dials for some old 6105 parts and discovered the part. i replaced it about twenty minutes ago no charge. oh! so happy!. …was tired of turning the hour hand back from #12 to #9 and back to #12 over and over to set the date …lol! we are back to one click out sets date, two clicks sets time… just waiting for crystal press so i can convert to bezel press……..and set the steel crystal hold down ring snap the bezel in then attach the steel bracelet….later rock

ABOVE IS THE DIAL WITH THE OLD LUME REMOVED

BELOW ARE THE MANY FACES OF THE COMPLETED
PIECE JUST THE HANDS ARE LEFT !!!
ONCE THE LUME DRIES I WILL MOUNT AND SEAL HER UP!


Rock Scarfone
WELL GUYS AN’ GIRLS
THANKS TO THIS PATRON I DECIDED TO Re-Open the GoldSmithWorks Ebay Store & will be making MY POPULAR leather cuff straps including those with Vietnam ZIPPO Lighter Pouches – they are in demand–so are dive watch restorations…I GUESS IT TOOK Andy’ 6105-8000 proof? i have the dial LUME & wash & soon the custom treated crystal will arrive & I will place the new seals, clean & re-LUME the marker windows , change the hands, close her down & she will be complete! She is running & looking like new…..i must say, even though the bezel insert is after mkt., it surely looks great! have to say that Andy was right both IN   using it and the vintage steel bracelet! Nothing wrong with beefing it up! Heck, back in its hey day, guys were doing it also! Though it was a B-*-*-*-H to get that baby to fit!

 


the dial and the marker windows and  hands
will have to wait until the crystal comes in
 
the movement is overhauled and case is complete

note that the bezel insert supplied by the patron 
is installed and though it is not an original ITEM-it is an ORIGINAL AFTER
MARKET ITEM THAT MANY IN COUNTRY SOLDIERS
AND THOSE WHOM INVESTED IN THESE TIME PIECES
IN THE CIVILIAN MARKET PLACE
DID INVEST IN! YOU SEE AFTER MARKET TWO TONE
BEZEL INSERTS WHERE VERY COMMON! THUS I FEEL THAT IT TRULY MAKE THIS 
AWESOME TIME PIECE KEEP IT’S VALUE

the hands marker boxes and dial cleaning will occur
as soon as the crystal comes in
 
AND I REMOVE THE INSERT AND HOLD DOWN FOR
THE CRYSTAL EXPOSING THE DIAL AND HANDS AND MARKERS  

TOP IS THE BEZEL WITH INSERT SET

note the case back is DETAILED – POLISHED –
IT’S ITEMS SEEMINGLY FACTORY “RE ENGRAVED”
AS IT WAS ORIGINALLY EVEN SEIKO EXPERTS
WOULD SWEAR THIS WAS OFF THE SHELF RIGHT NOW

 

the following pics MAY SEEM redundant  

BUT THEY ARE REQUIRED

ANOTHER SHOT FROM ABOVE NOTE THE FACT THE TWO TONE 
IS SLIGHTLY THICKER THAN THE ORIGINAL 
THIS STEEL BRACELET DOES NOT HAVE A DEEP SEA DIVING SAFETY 
DEVICE ON IT. IT SEEMS TO BE MORE FOR SHALLOW RIVERS AND WOULD
SURELY HAVE BEEN PERFECT FOR MUDDY RIVER RATS IN VIETNAM


a picture of the movement & WATCH CASE  totally stripped down

SOLID HOME DEPOT RIOBI DUAL BUFFER GRINDER
CONVERTED BY THE ROCK
FOR RESTORING WATCH CASES AND BRACELETS

note my 25 year OLD ORIGINAL  set up
it is all in the knowledge! RIOBI
AN OLD COMFORTER
SEVERAL SHEET ROCK SCREWS
2 6 INCH COTTON WHEELS
6 TYPES OF ROUGH

ROCK WILL USE 1/4 OF EACH PER WATCH CASE AND STEEL BRACELET
IMAGINE!! FOR ONE CASE AND ONE BRACELET
1/4 OF EACH BLOCK OF ROUGH  IMAGINE THAT
FOR THE WHITE STEEL VERSION HE WILL USE 1/4 OF TWO  BLOCKS!
OR 1/2 OF A BLOCK! FOR ONE CASE AND ONE BRACELET!

TWO Top of the line 6 inch cotton wheels
and 6 bars of mixed rough!

i went through 3.5 bars worth of rough to
bring this beauty back to life!j
NOT ONLY WILL HE USE
BLACK GREY WHITE GREEN &  RED
[The white rough is the #1 steel cutter]

BUT HE WILL ALSO USE ACID 

ADVANCED WATCH TOOLS WHERE UTILIZED 

TO WORK ON THE ENGINE OF THIS AWESOME BEAUTY

I USE THE CAMEL FOOT STOOL TO LAY OVER AND USE MY UPPER ARM STRENGTH
USING ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE UNIT -THE RIGHT SIDE I USE ONLY ONE WHEEL
A SCRAPPER REMOVES THE LEFT OVER ROUGH AS I APPLY EACH TYPE UNTIL I AM DONE
THUS EACH WHEEL CAN BE UTILIZED OVER AND OVER.
ONE MUST BE SKILLED SPECIFICALLY DUE TO THE DANGERS OF THE HIGH SPEEDS AND
THE FACT THAT YOU ARE WORKING WITH DANGEROUS MATERIALS AND HI VELOCITY
A SIMPLE SLIP CAN MEAN THE LOSS OF AN EYE OR DAMAGE TO ONES
FACE OR HANDS ETC.

FACTS ARE IT LOOKS AND SOUNDS EASY BUT THIS WORK IS AFTER
ONE HAS USED THE WATCH WORKERS TOOLS TO REBUILD
THE WATCHES TECHNOLOGY AND RESTORED THE MOVEMENT AND HAS
COMPLETELY REBUILT THE TIME PIECE AND IS NOW REBUILDING THE COSMETICS

AS MOST OF THE COLLECTORS OF SEIKO 6105’S KNOW, THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE EARLY FINDS HAD MUCH TO DO WITH VIETNAM! ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT HAVE NO BASIS WHAT SO EVER WITH THE WAR! YES, IT USUALLY IS IN FACT THOSE THAT RUB AGAINST THE GRAIN TURN OUT TO HAVE THAT SPECIAL HISTORY.  FOR THE “PROOF” VERSIONS SURELY ARE THE EARLY BIRDS WHOM WERE SURELY SO VERY CLOSE TO THE GRAIN THEY HARDLY WERE INNOCENT!

THUS ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE THIS WONDERFUL INNOCENT 6105 WATER PROOF FROM ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA. IT WAS PLUCKED FROM THE BATCH THAT SAW IT’S WAY INTO THE FORLORN PACIFIC! YES, IT WAS BIRTHED IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME WHEN YOUNG AMERICAN “GUN HO” SOLDIERS* GAINED ENOUGH IN COUNTRY TIME TO R&R A PLANE TO THE LAND OF THE KANGAROO AND GET THEM SELVES A CUSTOM SHOT GUN BARRELS CUT OFF AND CUSTOMIZED TO BLOW THE YOU KNOW WHAT OFF SOME VIET CONG MOTHER F-FER!

This 6105 was purchased in Adelaide, South Australia! If you are not familiar with Australia and Vietnam allow me to familiarize you with the facts! The AUSSIES trained our first soldiers in Guerrilla warfare before they stepped foot in the NAM! They were also our allies and our largest in country partners next to the South Koreans!!! In addition, our R&R program included Australia as one of the top destinations! Their special OPPs forces were comparable to our own! Deadly to the VIET CONG to say the least! Heck since WWII the AUSSIES were our partners! GO:

THE FIRST GREEN BERET “ADVISORS” WHO SERVED IN VIETNAM WERE TRAINED IN GUERRILLA WARFARE BY THE AUSTRALIAN SPECIAL FORCES.  BESIDES THE US FORCES, AUSTRALIAN SAS MEMBERS WERE THE FIRST COVERT OPERATIVES IN THE EARLY 1960’S.  IN FACT, AS I STATED, THE AUSTRALIAN SAS WOULD BECOME AS FEARED BY THE VIET CONG AS THE US NAVY SEALS WOULD IN THE LATE 1960’S. BOUNTIES WERE PLACED FOR THEIR DEATH OR CAPTURE.

Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War began with briefly TRAINING US SPECIAL FORCES. In 1962, 30 Australian Military Advisors were stationed in Vietnam. Over the decade that number grew to 7,672.   Australian troops that deployed to South Vietnam included  ground forces, support troops and the SAS [special forces].

The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest war only recently surpassed by Australia’s long term commitment of combat forces in Afghanistan. Initially enjoying broad support due to concerns about the spread of communism in Southeast Asia, controversy soon developed into an anti-war movement in response to Australia’s draft and the same conceived evils as those viewed in the USA. From 1966 to 1971 three “sabre” squadrons of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) completed two tours of Vietnam. The SAS was based at Nui Dat where it acted as the “eyes and the ears” of the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF) and operated throughout Phuoc Tuy province as well as in Bien Hoa, Long Khanh, and Binh Tuy provinces.

SAS personnel were highly trained and their role in Vietnam varied from conducting reconnaissance patrols and observing enemy movement to offensive operations deep in enemy territory. The SAS had the highest “kill” ratio of any Australian unit in Vietnam. The Australian SAS operated closely with the New Zealand SAS and New Zealand SAS soldiers were attached to each Australian squadron.

The withdrawal of Australia’s forces from South Vietnam began in November 1970 when 8 RAR completed its tour of duty and was not replaced. A phased withdrawal followed, and by 11 January 1973 all Australian involvement in hostilities in Vietnam had ceased and only the Australian Embassy Platoon remained deployed in the country until 1 July 1973. In April 1975, during the Fall of Saigon, Australian forces were deployed briefly  to evacuate personnel from the Australian embassy.

  • 1881 — Kintaro Hattori opens the watch and jewelry shop “K. Hattori” (Hattori Tokeiten in Japanese; currently named Seiko Holdings Corporation) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan.

Available on US military bases PX/BX AND R&R LOCATIONS, the early Seiko Divers, particular the 6105, were Popular with US soldiers in Vietnam. The 6105 would become a combat watch long before 1974 when Martin Sheen, as Captain Willard in “Apocalypse Now”, wearing a 6105-8110 while traversing the NAM into CAMBODIA AND ITS HIGHLANDS in search of the Off The Reservation Rogue Colonel Kurt (Marlon Brando) and his “Montagnard” Army who were wreaking havoc on the Viet Cong [Vietnamese Communist Forces].

The Snake-Eaters and the Yards
The Vietnamese tribesmen who fought alongside American Special Forces won the Green Berets’ admiration—and lost everything else. The indigenous Montagnards, recruited into service by the American Special Forces in Vietnam’s mountain highlands, defended villages against the Viet Cong and served as rapid response forces. The Special Forces and the Montagnards—each tough, versatile, and accustomed to living in wild conditions—formed an affinity for each other….

The 6105-8000 was introduced in 1968. but the 6105 8110/8119 were made from 1970-1977, and were first delivered with the words “water proof” as in: “water 150m proof” on the dial, and “waterproof” on the case back. But a US ban on using the words “WATERPROOF” on watches meant SEIKO would alter the words to “water 150m resist” with “water resistant” on the back later in the same year.This adds to value. Many early seiko watches carried the waterproof info, finding these, specifically the early 8119.. well, that is a cause for definite premium over the “resist/resist” models.
