Thread: Seiko Lord Matic 5206-5080

    Seiko Lord Matic 5206-5080

    Got this for very little. Should refinish well. Maybe the crystal will get swapped as being glass and faceted will be a mare to polish.

    Original bracelet will need tightening up and polish/brushing.

    well things is with a lordmatic what holds it apart is the the faceted crystal so to swap that out you lose what is the major thing about it unless you can get like for like which is doubtful in some thing from the 70's I would get some diamond paste and take the time to repair the crystal if possible as I said as that will make all the difference they just don't look half as good with flat crystals just my thought had one I sold as the crystal was nibbled wish I had spent time on repairing it as would maybe of keep it or it a least made a higher price then it did .. some are very undervalued I think and over looked ... mine sold for half what I thought it would make

    Totally agree mate, I would never swap it with a normal acrylic. Would have to be the faceted glass version if I ever find one.

    Nice green dial!

    I love the combination of the mad coloured dials and the faceted crystals.

    My first LM and not the last.
