Graffex:
I remember my 1st watch. Bought it when I was 13 y.o.
I'm 79 now.
Saved the money from doing yardwork for my neighbors.
It was a WW2 A11. 36mm. Had the 359 cal movement. I
bought it from a nearby pawn shop. $40.00. A11's were made
for the WW2 military by 4 contractors. Mine was made by
Hamilton.
Mr. A11 and I parted company when I sold it to get a RR
grade pocket watch for my use as a fireman on the CRI&P RR.

All set up. I am however a bit concerned as one of the screws in the band fell out as I was putting my toddler to bed, and the whole watch fell off. I'm wondering if I should take all the screws out and put a dab of loctite or something for piece of mind?

very nice. should last you a long time.

regarding the screws, if you can bear to be without it, i would return to Seiko for them to sort it out.

Threadlock sounds a good idea, I use it on mx bikes, but make sure it is low-strength, not high! - unless you NEVER want to get them out. But I would say even low strength might be a risk though.
