Here's a Seiko 7N36-6A29 that I bought in 1994. It was my daily-driver for over 10 years, needing nothing more than a battery every couple of years and I put in two crystals. (after cracking two of the bubble date windows, I finally just went with a flat crystal).
In the past few years, it's been my beater watch, for yardwork, in the garage etc. I've used it snorkeling and surfing in FL, Puerto Rico and Hawaii, Hatteras, etc. (and putting my hands in plenty of places where they probably shouldn't have been).
A few weeks ago, I finally found a replacement bezel via Cousins in the UK. Getting the old bezel off was a task. While it was off, I sanded out the worst of the scratches and gouges and then polished it by machine. The original Jubilee bracelet was beat and the links very stretched out. I found a $20 "Seiko" jubilee on Ebay (branded but a knock off?) It was brushed, so I polished it to match. It's not new by any means, but a far sight prettier. It will still be my "beater" watch, but will get a little better care then shown in the past few years.
