    That Devon is truly unique and what I consider a great piece. What's nice about it is 99% of the population would guess it's just a novelty. Not knowing it's worth more than a small car lol.

    I think it screams money... It's so unique it's gotta cost IMO.
    None the less, nice watch

    I like the look of the watch but that thing is ENORMOUS. The knob on the side is like the size of my thumb!

    You wear a $15,000 watch?

    How many motorcycles do you own?

    I found a watch I liked today at Costco. I am, however, reluctant to part with $800 even though I have a $150 rebate.

    I'd back away from anyone I saw wearing that! Looks like an IED.

    That is a serious f'n watch. I love my Bulova. It's nothing too special, but small and tells time accurately. And I haven't destroyed it yet.

    I have an older (1982) Sieko dive-style watch. I would like to have the face replaced so the luminous markings are visible at night.

    Can any authorized Seiko dealer handle this? Last time I sent it in was through Alpha Omega, who is out of business.

    It probably wouldn't be worth the money to have a Seiko dealer do it. You can get a new Seiko diver online for under $200.

    You could send it to someone like Bob Thayer Jr for a new dial ( http://www.bobthayerjr.com/ ). There's a bit of a cottage industry out there for Seiko diver overhauls. One of the companies doing it early on, Mk II Watches, actually went on to become a full-fledged watch company.

    As is with almost anything else it would be much cheaper to replace than to fix/modify. But if you are looking for a great place then Jay from Motorcity is very good. Not sure what you need but some times the original face can just be relumed.

    I bought the watch the day after I graduated U.S. Army
    Ranger School so it has sentimental value.

    I absolutely understand the importance of such a piece. The most valuable watch I have is my grandfathers pocket watch. Cost me ... $$$$ ... To get it refurbished. It's worth about $300 LOL

    Post up how you make out with the repair.

    Over the years I have accumulated many watches from a variety of Tag's and Luminox to several Omega's. My big $$ one is this Constellation

    Charlief amd Mark, thanks for the referrals. I'm going to check with the Motor City folks about a re-lum and working the bezel, currently stuck.

    This is the watch. It's a Seiko Sports 100 (8229-601A) which I understand are not of any real value but does keep good time.

    Heard back from Motorcity. They don't usually relume my model and the guy they send it out to is backed up 3-4 months. He recommended someone else.

    The relume isn't particularly pressing and it keeps narly perfect time as-is. I would like to switch to the rubber diver's band instead of the metal bracelet. I'll have to measure the width, I imagine it is the 20mm model.

    Try The Watchmaker in Stoneham. They're not fast but they're very good. They also sell new and refurb pieces. I just scored a mechanical Hamilton during their winter sale.

    I recently upgraded one of my dive watches with a custom shark strap. Matching stitching with the dial and sweep hand. Holiday gift to myself.

    Just got this in the mail today. A German designed watch made in Switzerland. A big watch at 44m but wears much smaller. My second watch by this boutique brand.

    A bad picture
