Job Complete – SEIKO 6105-8110 with Water Intrusion

Another fantastic result. This watch was damaged by a past water intrusion. The minute track dial print was damaged and unrecoverable. Fortunately the luminous paint was in good condition and didn’t require replacement. To complete the job, a set of aftermarket hands was added, a new glass and new seals.
Inside the watch, the movement was upgraded with a 6119 top train plate and escape wheel along with the barrel arbor jewel upgrade. This brings the jewel count to 22 jewels. The setting on the escape wheel now has a “DIAFIX” setting on one side which will help with consistent timekeeping and better resistance to shocks.
After “re-packing” the crown with a new VITON seal, and a fresh set of seals elsewhere, the watch passed a 100m pressure test.
