I own a little coin shop.  One of my regulars knows I enjoy watches, especially seiko automatics.  He finally brought in his watch that he bought new in 1977 (watch is dated early 1977) while he was in the coast guard.   Moisture somehow got in the first year he owned it. He took it somewhere to fix the issue and he never wore it again.   I think that's possibly why the lume is not great.   When I got it, it was not running.   He was about to throw it away but when he bought it he had a custom band made for it and he couldn't get it off.  The inside of the case back has one marking on it from a service.   Either way, it's neat to buy a 40 year old watch from the original owner, especially a watch I've been wanting to stumble upon for a while.  The NATO strap on it was the nearest I had to me so just threw it on.
