    I think you're on the right track, but I'd go for something stronger, like Superglue. Once the screw has been extracted, you can use acetone to separate the driver from the screw.

    They probably just swap the movement, which is fine with me. A new movement is as good or better than a freshly-serviced movement.

    Beautiful car!

    I wonder if that could more easily be removed chemically.

    I doubt it needs 1300 turns per day. 1300 turns is probably enough to fully wind it from a stopped condition.

    Given that the watch probably has a power reserve of ~48 hours (to make the math...

    Is it too late to ask for tons of photos and insist on a face-to-face meeting? The former will eat up tons of his time as he searches the web for images.

    People who frequent these forums are watch enthusiasts. There is no logic to it. It's a bit of fun, nothing more.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting an Omega is a Swatch or a Bugatti is a Volkswagen. Seems pretty clear to me.

    I've never examined a 6105-8000 crown, but I am familiar with the 6105-8110/6105-8119 crown sealing system. I'm assuming they're similar in that there is an o-ring fitted inside the crown retained by...

    Seiko tends not to mention amplitude in their service guides. That said, I'd say if you're >= 200° in all six positions, you're in pretty good shape.

    Exactly. This is why the aftermarket SELs made for the Seiko 7S26-0020 (SKX007 and similar) that use the "fat" Seiko spring bars protrude past the lugs.

    The Mk. II Blackwater MMT is quite thin. You'll have to pick one up second-hand, as it's no longer in production.

    I, too, have a smallish wrist (6.75"), and the Seiko 8L35-0010 Marine Master fits like a glove. It's a big watch. It's a bit long lug-to-lug, but the lugs curve downward and hug the wrist.
