Greetings from Southern California, I discovered this site while sourcing parts for a 1970, 6119-6023 that I just inherited. It has a green face, which I'm learning is pretty rare. The face is in beautiful shape, but the lumed hands and indices are shot. I could live with the indices, but I must find some new silver hands. The red second hand is in very presentable shape. If anyone has a suggestion for hands, please advise. This is my first Seiko/Japanese watch and I've enjoyed jumping down the rabbit hole with the new subject. My collection has evolved over many years and with not a lot of intent, just quality things I like. The Seiko will live in a nice suede lined box along with a 1960, Omega Constellation, a 1978 Cartier Tank, a 1954 solid gold Bulova automatic (beautiful) and two vintage Hamiltons. The Seiko will become my daily driver so to speak. Others of you in SoCal, where do you take your watches for repair? Great site, thanks to all.
