You really shouldn’t wear suede in the rain, Smelli…

But, then again, this {mod’d} 6309-7040 really shouldn’t be on leather.

But it sure is comfortable - particularly with one of those clasps Ron had mentioned recently

That's cool to see--and yeah, they are pretty comfortable.

Nice! what watch is that? I know the 'T' doesn't stand for Timex.
Thanks Battle! ~Tsunami~

This dude Noah Fuller used to modify Seiko and eventually started making his own cases et. al. and selling parts and whole watches under the name of Tsunami.

Noah was a American who lived in Hong Kong and was on PMWF a lot so when he came to the states we put together a GTG and he proved to be a genuinely cool dude who was funny as hell.

Regrettably, he very soon after fell into the highly erosive cycles cancer often brings and passed away shortly thereafter… young 30s? Huge bummer.

His buddy “Jake B” carried on in HK under brand “Dagaz” watches - which I just learned had finally imploded about a year ago. It’s gotta be tough trying to making a living manufacturing & selling reasonably priced bits to a globe full of know-it-alls.

So this is just a watch, an old Seiko - but it holds footnotes of an era of privateer modification using parts from people who have left a mark while passing through this thing of ours.

They were something along the lines of Carlo Abarth the legendary serial Fiat-modifier and racer who took a pretty good product in the 500, made some improvements, and sold it as his ‘own’.

Jake is out, and Noah, like Carlo, was ‘called home’ years ago.

Yet, the watches upon which they tinkered, like time itself, simply carry on…

The 6309-7040 is like like the Fiat;

But, once modified with Tsunami or other non-factory parts, it is more like the ‘Abarth’:

Thats nice, Datejust 36 ref.126234. Would love to own the 41mm version.

Get your camera fixed, we want to see pictures of bbattle's 33 year-old watch.
Well, here's a first attempt:

I must be holding the phone too close to the watch. And I see the date is 31 and today is the 30th.

Okay, last one:
a decent pic of datejust finally.jpg
Well, the glare is bad. I'll keep messing with this phone camera; some instructions would have been nice but I can't read Chinese anyways. I miss my old 3G Samsung flip phone.
