    Seiko 5's are (generally speaking) so cheap, would it be worth the cost of getting one repaired or serviced?

    I actually just bought 2 SNK806s just to harvest their movements for an SKX009 and a Monster. I believe they are the cheapest watch with a 7s26c.

    The U2 is filled with argon gas so the service has to be done at the factory if you want the case to have case refilled with argon when you get it back. The movement itself is nothing special it's mostly an off the shelf ETA.
