Seiko EL-370 Hybrid, fully serviced, as seen on our YouTube channel
This is the Seiko EL-370 Hybrid, the creation & restoration of which I documented in this video:
To Recap: This watch is a hybrid of two different EL-370s - a gold-plated 3703-7039 from September 1971 (dial, hands, movement, movement ring, caseback) and a stainless steel case & bracelet, date unknown as the caseback was missing.
I found these watches to illustrate my answer to a question for our Friday Fun / Q&A video series, and over the course of the following weekend, restored the watch as it is now.
Fully serviced movement, adjusted & dialed in
Entire movement fully disassembled, fully cleaned and rebuilt correctly, with the proper lubricants.
Case rebuilt with all new seals, including battery hatch.
NOS crystal installed.
Bracelet is original to the case, I have extended the bracelet with closely related links from another Seiko watch, model unknown.
I was able to get excellent numbers out of this movement, and dial it in to accuracies of a few seconds per day so far. Very nice piece.
The majority of the pricing is for the labor and parts that went into servicing this watch.
