Just dropping in like Viper to say hey. (And it actually is 110 here).
While thrift stores are the last place I'm going to step into during this pandemic (especially being in the dumpster fire that is Orange County) I thought you might enjoy this find from simpler times late last year...

The Seiko 6105-8110, most famous for being the watch Martin Sheen wears in Apocalypse Now. This one dates to September 1971. That shot isn't the most flattering, but for its age, the case/bezel is in great condition.
Thankful for that ugly stretch bracelet, as that's what probably made people not look twice at it in the case. Shook it a few times and it fired right up. That little speck of paint in the 0 at 40 came right off, and she cleaned up nicely. Threw it on a different strap and have been wearing it ever since.
I'll go back to my troll hole now.
Some.of you might think this is a just another cool vintage Seiko.
These fetch thousands now.
