Seiko 6119-6053 "Regatta" Sport Diver, restored, w/ rare NOS parts
This is a fully restored Seiko “Regatta” or Yachstmaster or sailboat racing timing watch. I’m not really sure what they’re called, honestly. But they’re neat. Anyway, they’re one of Seiko’s only double-bezel designs - outer rotating ring and internal rotating indicator ring.
I did a video on this watch after I restored it: https://youtu.be/Lr-QnWdpbj4
