Nice collection there Gerard and I like how you've went for the 6105-8000 rather than the more popular 6105-8110. People rave over the 8110 being as it's the watch Martin Sheen wore in Apocalypse Now and all that but I'm in the minority who prefer the case shape of the previous version. I've never owned one and I doubt I ever will seeing how the prices have risen in the last few years but I've handled more than a few of both types. This is the last one I had the 'pleasure' of working on - http://wristsushi.proboards.com/thread/ ... iver-happy

Many thanks. Yes I too have never seen the appeal of the 8110 and never owned one. Just doesn't do it for me or look right. Much prefer the 8000. Thanks for the link...new one on me. I have dropped off the watch forums a bit...used to spend a lot of time on the Seiko/Citizen forum.

Some tasty looking watches here ... makes me want to starting wearing a watch. I can't stand relying on my phone.

In fact, I've been dying to wear a watch ever since I lost my last one, handed down to me by my dad. I stupidly lost it a couple of years after he gave it to me and though it wasn't particularly special, it had a simplicity that I really liked (and had kept going for 40 years).

I wondered if the knowledge here would extend to general watches as I want to see if I can find a similar replacement from the same time. I believe I have a pencil drawing I made of it which could help. I would be grateful if anyone might be able to look at it and make some suggestions.

Ok, I found the drawing, it's a lot more sketchy than I thought.

It had a black face and everything else was silver, understated, probably steel but I wouldn't know anything, and probably a lot more round than this when looking down on the silver/steel body (corners), and overall was thin and flat, not thick and convex as I seem to have drawn it. The hands and the hour indications were square not sharp and you could see '12,9,6,3'.

Any help is appreciated.

You should get around £250 for it if it's in working condition. The pushers probably just need cleaned and new gaskets fitted but if the movement isn't running then it'll need a full strip down and service. There's a bit more to servicing one of these vs swapping the cell in a Kinetic and it takes me around four hours to service a 6139 (it's my day job).

Here's a pic of the last 6139 I serviced to give you an idea of whats inside -

Morning!

Anybody know where I can find the titanium strap for my Citizen jp3020-05e?

The titanium parts are great - except the steel pins that hold it together rust out.
