In unrelated news, my Casio suffered a nasty gash while I was fixing the faucet in the bathroom and soon after stopped working. You served me well for many years.
I need a replacement.
I don't know Nabster enough, but he always came across as an enthusiast, who will be doing a great work in nice watches, regardless of price.Labcoatguy;n3552643 said:RIP Casio.
Nabster refurbished my old Seiko diver with a new movement and cleaned it up using bits from a parts watch. Just a great watchmaker who's as willing to be work on these basic Seikos as a multi-figure Swiss mechanical.
I have no opinion on Steinhart, but it made me think of this, that made me laugh when I saw it on instagram...RdKetchup;n3552763 said:The bracelet of my Steinhart is falling to pieces...[/url]
No worries. Nabster's been kind enough to rebuild a few inexpensive pieces I've acquired over the past year or so, and it was illuminating to pick his brain for this article I wrote for Worn & Wound last year: A Restoration Story: Breathing New Life Into a $45 Timex “Roulette"Nabster;n3552739 said:Save for the fact that I struggle to find adequate time to sit down and do proper work at home :lol: And poor BlaRo has to wait longer for his stuff because of that

One of my favorite pieces he worked on for me was this Seiko 661908110, from October 1966, one of my oldest Seikos in my collection. As early a Seiko 5 as you can get, with the 5 Sportsmatic line introduced in 1963.
So, after over 2 years of daily wear, it looks like the bracelet is about to give up the ghost, so I ordered a replacement from MVMT. Same colour leather and buckle.IceBone;n3329390 said:
