Here are some of mine. The first one I bought in 1977 and it has never missed a beat...only had its first service in 2010 and spent much of the intervening years beneathe the sea...new crystal and bezel insert of course:

Not sure why I never posted in this thread until now. Just figured y'all seen them already. I've got a 6306 and a 6309 that are for the most part, "unmolested" while the remainder have has some work done on 'em. No collection is complete without them, right?
Just got my 1977 6309-7040 back from a full service: breakdown, cleaned, oiled, gaskets, new crystal. All original except for new band, and crystal, I left the original dial/hands lume and the case is untouched.

Just picked up this nice all-original '77 Suwa to complement my '85 HK. I really like the insert on this one. A new crystal and it's good to go. I just had one question regarding the strap. It's an original Z22 and is a bit old and stiff. Is there any harm in placing it in boiling water to soften it up?
