The Seiko 7009 movement is by far my favorite in the entry level Seiko Automatic range. It really was built to last and I like things like that! There are no plastic parts, as there are in the 6309, 7S26 4R36 etc. I know the 6309 does not share the same construction but it is interesting that some parts were plastic. Then they were not, and now they are now again. Whatever your watch, WellingTime UK watch repair can help.
