That's unfortunate. I personally have no attachment to it so it's probably a goner. Thank you for answering!

What about this one that also showed up a couple of hours ago? Apparently my old man has never thrown away a ruined wristwatch.
Oops, missed this, sorry.

I think that one's not worth salvage either. New crystal to replace the cracked one and a new crown at minimum, plus likely a movement replacement since it's probably quite dirty if not oxidized inside. The gold plated case is also thoroughly corroded on the back side, and while a proper cleaning will help a lot, it won't fix the corrosion.

Congrats! I eagerly await pics!

I've been watching (heh) my preferred dealer's Instagram page and they've been posting a whole bunch of nice GS Seikos and stainless Rolex sport models. If my financials weren't going the wrong way, I'd be shopping there.

Interested in a Speedmaster Broadfoot Broadarrow? :mrgreen:

Yup, especially after this quarantine (as if that would make a difference anyway) I'd be a speed-master with that....

And here it is:

Grand Seiko SBGA283, the "base model" spring drive (already switched out onto a leather strap rather than the all-brushed Oyster style bracelet).
Beautifully finished and polished case, hands, and indices, but what you're really here for is the freaky smooth movement.

Here's another shot on a different brown strap. Notice how the second hand blurs smoothly through this multi-second exposure.

Compare that to this old pic of a Seiko 5 I once had, and how the second hand visibly ticks.

Also took the Speedy on a drive, using it to track how long I'd been driving. It really looks the business on a perforated racing strap.

I don't see a problem. Buy watch, receive champagne and small gifts!
