2 hours ago I received the watch.
Unfortunately the watch is looking worse than I supposed.. really disgusting, dirty and ugly ;)
I will try to repair it by my watchmaker - at the moment case is clean, so I have to find new crystal, and service the movement.

Some time ago I started with strapmaking. That was very hard to do and I wasted a lot of leather and time :) , but now I can say that my straps are well made, without mistakes .
I am using special leather wax for impregnate, so straps are very soft.
This really great thing to do Final Product by connecting leather, wax, glue and thread - just awesome feeling :)
Second shot of this month is Seiko Military Quartz Chronograph 7a28-7040. This is very interesting model with fully (15) jewelled quartz chronograph (no plastic parts!) with split second function. 40mm case is beadblasted, 100m water resist, with bi-directional diving bezel. Crystal is scratched, bezel also - but this is wabi, and I like it :) Really nice watch - actually my EDC.
One month ago, I found this watch at internet auction. Seller's photos were very poor, and the watch was looking very crappy . When the watch arrived, I was shocked :) Great condition, like NOS 27j bell-matic with awesome dial! You can see wristshot of this watch compared to my other bellmatic.

Both are excellent condition, especially dials and hands. Navigator Timer have more case scratches than world-time but I think it will be few minutes of work;) World Time case back is marked 6117-6400, Navigator's back 6119-6003 - but afaik this is not original number of this model.
