Seiko M158 PanAm restoration

Post22 Feb 2019, 18:24

Hello,

The last year I bought a M158 PanAm for few dollar on Ebay, it was a good catch but the watch had a lot of scratch on the case and specialy on the glass.
I was affraid to start a renovation because I don't have a skills in watchmaking but after reading a great posts on the forum I decided to start.
I found this great review on the watch forum to help me, special thank to Sir Alan. :Prost:

During the restoration : glass removal and polishing first with sand paper and after with the Dremel for the edges: I refresh the band i same time.
