Of the all the watches I service for ClockSavant customers, watches handed-down from family members take-on a special meaning. I recently serviced this 1972 Seiko 6139-6032 Speedtimer for a ClockSavant customer. His father had recently passed-away and his son hoped to have the watch restored. The watch clearly had been worn and cared-for for some time but somewhere along the line it was exposed to water which invaded the watch causing significant rust and corrosion damage. In addition, someone trying to get the watch running badly bent the hairspring. There was quite a bit working against bringing this watch back; however, knowing its importance meant simply saying "no, it can't practically be repaired" was a non-option for me. As a sentimental watch, it was especially important to keep as much of the watch original as possible to keep the connection with the past. Only parts that could not be repaired/brought-back were replaced. After considerable work, the watch exceeded all of my expectations and rose to become the best performing Seiko 6139 I've serviced to-date. The watch is now exceeding performance of a new Seiko 6139, running within COSC performance specifications measured across all 6 positions, showing near zero beat error (symmetry of balance swing), has exceptional amplitude (degree of balance swing), passed water resistance testing, and has top performance throughout the power reserve of 45 hours.
