Quality Time RELUMES!
Dr. Seiko has long been known for exacting standards in his relumes. The good Doctor use`s the standard of the industy, SUPER LUMINOVA, that we import directly from Switzerland. We can mix up custom vintage colors, or we can color match existing lume`s. Since a quality relume can be the most time consuming and frustrating job on a watch, considerable time needs to be set asside for it. Reluming can run between 80 and 125 bucks depending on the quality wanted, and the existing conditon of the dial and hands. Please keep in mind that a relume is only as good as the dial and hands will permit. The biggest problem with Seiko diver is "The black funk", and while some of it can be removed, we never truely know how it will look until completed. Of course if your dial is pristene, a NOS quality relume can be done that is very hard to detect from original, look at the photos.

The 6319-7040 diver??
The 6319-7040 is a FAKE cooked up by a a famous ebay seller in the Netherlands. I suspect there are at least ten of them floating around the world, always purported to be a "New, unseen before Vintage Seiko diver". What a line, eh. All are sub standard when compared to other Seiko`s, but they did have alot of attention to detail put into them. Cheers, Dr.Seiko

The XO5 gets a SAPPHIRE
These scans show me fitting the very first SAPPHIRE crystal into the XO5 prototype. The XO5 is the first HOT production watch that was built. The XO5 is based on the vintage Seiko 150meter diver, case # 6105-8110. Among the XO5`s many features is the Hands of Time handwinding modification!! Yes, a 6105 diver the hacks and handwinds. SMOOTH AS BUTTA!
Fitting the Monster Bracelet
It takes about 2-4 hrs to proffesionally fit the Monster bracelet to the vintage 6105 cases. Shown are all of the steps except final polishing.
