1978 seiko Grand Quartz with two quartz crystals

I got this cap gold beauty from a very nice seller on the bay :)

Backside :)

This temperature adjusted twin quartz marvel of technology lurks inside,
I haven't got around to disassemble my watch but here's a nice picture :)

I need a complete crown of course...
Image

And the other side, that "cap gold" is much more resistant to wear than "rolled gold/goldplating" :)

Image

The crystal has some anti reflection coating? It really shows the awesome dial and hands, I can't stop looking at it :)

I only need a better fitting strap (nice brown leather) and this one won't leave my wrist for a while :)

Thanks! It now has a nice crocodile strap.
Image

I decided to take a look at the movement, and check if the case needed any cleaning.
Yuck....
Image

Movement is allright :)
Image

And with a super nice crocodile strap :)
