Thread: Seiko 6309-7290 TST

    Seiko 6309-7290 TST

    I don't usually have any interest in modified watches, but I had a sad looking 6309-7290 in my drawer that water had made a mess of the dial and hands. After looking at some of the TST conversions (by The Tiger UK) I decided to make a TST mod out of this Seiko, but unlike most other people, all parts are genuine Seiko. After (Tiger) John made and fitted the S316 stainless shroud, I sent the watch to Duncan (The Watch Bloke) for a full movement service, along with an NOS 7C46-7008 dial found on ebay, new SBDX012 Limited Edition MM300 gold hour and minute hands, an NOS 6159-7001 second hand, an SKX011 bezel, topped off with a 6105-8110 crystal.

    It turned out looking good...!

    I couldn’t use a 6105 bezel, the markings needed to be gold to go with the gold dial and hands. I would have liked to use a 6309-729B bezel, but an NOS one is impossible to find. The SKX bezel is just perfect.

    I mean the bezel itself not the insert :-) the 6105-8010 bezel fits the 6309-704x I wondered if it would also the 729x. For coin edge loveliness
