Nice work, Pete - those 6309 divers are classics. I'm wearing mine as I type, although it looks like it's been in a fight, compared to yours! Great photos, too! :)

Oh what a wonderful sight at this point of the morning... It's inspired me to strap one of my 6309-7040's on for today... 8) 8) I'll look forward to reading the Seiko 6309-704x/Doxa Sharkhunter comparison review :D :D

Thanks for sharing.

Very very good work Pete.
A joy to see documentation along the way and the result is simply amasing. Hate to repeat myself but hese really are nice watches and the all polished ( read about your handpolishing on S&C ) version is rare and very cool :D

The 6309 should get the best design award among all the Seiko divers. Pity Seiko didn't have the vision of maintaining the design, but instead reduced the pillow case to the present SKX007 and MM300 auto case....what a shame :evil: .

Most Seiko divers look like they've been in fights becos their wearers know that they can take the punishment. No one mollycoddles their Seiko divers. I don't believe many Sub/SDs or SMPs would look the same as our watches :lol: .

I don't like pillow case, and I much prefer the 007 case. :)
