@Hokuseiko, yes I do wear them all but I've got duplicates so the nicer ones are for special occasions only. Not all of my watches are in such good condition but as long as it's just patina that's alright for me.

Default Seiko 7813-8009

This is my Seiko 7813-8009 from 1977: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-7813-8009
I've got very little knowledge about vintage analog Seikos but wanted one. After a while I found this 7813 with its very clean design.

Default Seiko H557-5030

My black Seiko H557-5030 is now online: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-h557-5030-black
I own several Seiko H557 but haven't found a decent black version yet. I'm also searching for a replacement crystal.

Default Seiko A133-5000

This is my silver Seiko A133-5000 from 1978: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-a133-5000-silver
The A133 caliber is very similar to the A159 except that it lacks a chronograph function.

Thanks @aeminium, I appreciate your comment. I'm planning to expand my collection with an LED watch. I don't own one yet and haven't done much research.

Default Seiko M159-5040

Another one of my M159 Seikos is now online: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-m159-5040
I own several Seiko M159 and unfortunately most of them aren't in a nice condition. It seems to me as if they where either good used in the past 40 years or the owners of the better ones don't sell them (for an acceptable price).

Default Seiko H557-5030

My golden Seiko H557-5030 from 1984 is now online: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-h557-5030-gold
It's new old stock and as such it still has the QC sticker on the back. It even had the price sticker on and the price would be about $460 in today's money.

Default Seiko 0634-5009 revisited

I've already posted photos of my Seiko 0634-5009 but as of today its video has been watched by 1000 viewers. Not a big achievement but a reason to celebrate and post the video and some background information about the Seiko 0634 caliber.


The 0634 caliber was Seiko's first digital chronograph watch and was engineered and produced by the Suwa Seikosha Co. It was released in three different case numbers, 5000 (1975) /5001 (1976), 5009 and 5019 (both 1975 or 1976). There is no visual difference between case number 5000 and 5001. Two different module revisions were used, 0634A and 0634B.
During the production run of the 0634-5000/5001 various bracelets were used (XAB890, XBB010, XAB990 and XQB380) and in one of the Seiko catalogs (1975-2, p. 35) it is even pictured with a bracelet that I've never seen on this watch. The bracelets of the cases 5009 (B223, B223S) and 5019 (B228) have always been the same but with minor changes.
Over the years there were some minor variations of the dial printing and the inner construction has been slightly changed. Some even look like prototypes on the inside. This probably shows that Seiko was gaining its first experiences in the mass production of digital watches.

In my opinion it's not easy to find detailed information about Seiko's early digital watches. All the above information is the result of me collecting them. So if you know more or better then please let me know.

Default Seiko C359-5010

I've just put my Seiko C359-5010 online: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-c359-5010
In my opinion it looks a bit strange (no offence intended) and seems smaller at the wrist than the other C359 models. It's one of the watches that I don't wear very often but maybe there comes the time when I get used to it - as it was the case with other watches in my collection.

Default Seiko A159-4000

The Seiko A159-4000 is in today's measure a very small watch and as such it fits a small wrist very well. Of the A159 caliber it's probably my favorite and with an alarm function and a chronograph even very practical.

There are additional pictures, additional information and videos of my A159-4000 watches on my site:
Seiko A159-4000 Silver | Time Art Piece
Seiko A159-4000 Blue | Time Art Piece

I've put my golden Seiko A159-4000 from 1978 online: http://timeartpiece.com/watches/seiko-a159-4000-gold
It's the third of my A159-4000 and I've got another one which I'm not entirely sure if it really is another version.
