Seiko 5 Military SNK809

This is Seiko 5 Military SNK809 the new model using cal.7S26B.
Cal.7S26B is the most common movement ca. late 1990-now

I like this Seiko military coz of the simplicity yet the shape of the case and its dial. And as one of my daily beater watches.
The price also not too much for this watch. So, I took this watch and change it with yellow pharos strap.
After a while with original look, I've modified her with blue dial, blue hands but still using original second hand and with yellow pharos strap.
This is my first planning since the blued second hand always stop near 6 o'clock after 1 minute lap.
I couldn't find the reason why?? But after using the original second hand she runs perfectly.... yipie....

Wow, cool man..... I'm thinking of another orange hands, just wait....

[Sold] Garuda Crystal, Dress Watch

Garuda, couldn't find about the history of the brand in the web.
All I know is, in 1962 Indonesia was having the ASIAN Games and the souvenir watch is TITUS.

And since the 1st president of Indonesia. Ir. Soekarno was an artistic, nationalism, elegant, classy, and neat person. He wanted to have a local brand watch with international quality.
At that time the well-known watch is produced from Swiss. So, maybe, it came the brand "GARUDA"(Indonesian country logo) with Swiss movement.

For sale only the black[SOLD] and Cat's eye dial!! ~Not the creme dial!~

[Sold] Enicar Sherpa Guide 600 World Time Short Lugs

Enicar, the first brand that hit my mind to collect vintage watches.
And also I already searched this type, known as Sherpa short lugs, for so long but after I got it.....
I fell like she doesn't "clicked" me, so with regret I have to let her go....
The photo was taken when I received the watch the first time.
Outer bezel, both are working. Inner bezel still working. And the date using pumping system and changing in midnight.
Once received I've never opened the caseback, afraid will add another scratch.
So, frankly speaking I don't know the movement but according from previous owner, it runs good...
Here the pic of movement, from with NOS condition.
Asking price: IDR sold
Thanks to Mr. Dj
