That is why the new SRP77X is such a good deal. Repairing a 6309 can be expensive and more than a new Turtle. But, that said, there are only so many real watch makers left, only so many places that can work on a mechanical watch, cannot expect their time to be cheap. How Seiko continues to manufacture quality watches that give watches costing 10 or 20 times as much a run is amazing of course. And if you want to spend money, Seiko can accommodate you there as well, but going down the JDM road to pick up a Marine Master, well, it can be a journey. But with the Seiko SKX007 at sometimes as low as $150, it is a solid purchase and a well respected watch even amongst watch people who know their stuff.couv wrote: ↑Sat Jul 21, 2018 7:35 pmOddly enough, my son recently expressed interest in my old 6309. So just yesterday I took it to a local watch "hospital." The watch works, but it just doesn't keep time very well. Nonetheless I was hoping for an inexpensive estimate as I only paid $110 for it new.....They wanted over twice that much. I said, "no thank you" and walked away disappointed.
If any of you have a line on where to get it up and running for a reasonable price please let me know. I'm not concerned with cosmetics, in fact keeping the "character" of the timepiece is preferred.
