It’s an illness!

I think this is about my 6th 6309 – when I don’t have one I want one, and when I have one I keep it for a while and then move it on. Oh well…

This one is a non-American market 7040, dating from 1984. It has it’s original non-Suwa dial and hands, but is fitted with a Yobokies double domed crystal with internal AR (hence the reflections!). It also has an aftermarket large dot insert on at the moment, but I do have an original insert on a spare bezel too. You can see that it has a lovely patina, and the other nice thing is that it had a movement service and new gaskets less than a year ago.

I only ever wear 6309s on Zulus, and I’m always swapping them over for a different look. In fact, as soon as this shot was taken the cherry came off and a black went on. When I look at it, it’s hard to work out why I ever sell them.

  1. Great watch and photo! Looks great, makes me wish I had mine on today 😉

    I’m on my first 6309 and don’t see myself selling it simply because it’s so comfortable and for a classic watch, ‘good’ sized.

    Not sure if you ever had a chance to try it on a canvas strap, I have mine on a Drew canvas and it wears great.
