Seiko 6138-8020 "Panda", original dial and hands, bracelet etc, Dec 1972
This is an original Seiko 6138-8020 from December 1972. Watch pricing includes full servicing as well as replacement of the chapter ring and crystal.
Original dial and hands and lume
Dial is excellent; only a few small things here and there. Vertical brushing intact, clear top coat nice and clear.
Lume original and clean, slightly darkened on the dial
Bracelet will fit 7.5” easily
Watch stops, starts, resets, winds manually and automatically, as it should.
Watch is in adjustment with decent accuracy and nearly no beat error.
Case sealing surfaces are good and solid.
Service history is unknown
Amplitudes are in the low 200s at full wind
Crystal is generic aftermarket, but an old type
Tachy ring is for the “black panda” so black with gold printing. Appears to be a service replacement.
Case and bracelet have been polished. Again, looks to me like an old-school watchsmith job.
Minor signs of humidity inside - spots on the winding weight. Rest of the movement looks fine, and movement ring spring is fine.
