I'm feeling like I won the gold. Some recent acquisitions:

Bulova Marine Star Quartz Frankenstein. New case, original movement and new accurist bracelet. $60 all in.

Seiko King Seiko survivor with cleaned and serviced movement. Seiko S-bracelet is vintage, but sadly not an accurate KS. $250. 

Bulova Super Seville Day Date with generic gold bracelet. Still on the hunt for a vintage version. $175 all in.

The girlfriend found this in a drawer somewhere in her home.

It belonged to her late father-in-law.

She thought it was dead as it wasn't 'ticking' when she found it.

The screw in crown fools most people, I guess.

Works like a champ since I gave it a full wind.

Off to my watch smith for a complete restoration (crystal replacement and an ultrasonic clean of the other bits n pieces) next week.

Here's a 'before' picture:

Just a fun $29 distraction from the 'bay. Seiko SQ 36mm dress watch. Love the TimexQ-like bracelet. Looks to be in great shape with some acceptable/expected plate-loss.

Should've waited. Snagged another. Didn't think the seller would accept my offer. Seiko SQ day/date 36mm, already have a nice chunky bracelet. $58 watch + $32 vintage bracelet = $90 fun watch.
