Default Very unloved Seiko, Shario 2220-A

When reading the old catalogs in the archive (excellent resource, thanks a lot), I realized
there are quite some models we do not see so often today.
Maybe they did not sell that well or most likely todays taste prefer another watch style.

The 2220 powered dress watches is one example.
They where produced in quite some different styles but today we do not see them often.
So here is my try to change that with an 2220-0180 in 18 K.
Yes, I know gold watches are soooo... old man style, but I cannot help myself,
I just like them.

Very simple dial, not even showing seconds makes it rather stylish in my eyes.
Still for everyday use I do want an second hand.



Turning it around it is clear that it have an small lady size movement.




Advantage of using such small movement is that it looks much more slim on the wrist
than it actually is.
Very easy to wear this watch.



The list price for this watch was 200 000 JPY 1974 but today the value is only of the
gold in the case if lucky.

Thanks for looking,
Bjorn.

I guess I'm an ol' man since I love it! hahaha! Classic thinness, and dial minimalist, those are rare to see, except on collectors who value such vintage goldie oldies! hehee! These will never go out of style IMO!

There's plenty of love round here for that beauty !.


If I was dressed in a real nice suit, with shirt and tie. Going somewhere really dressy that is the watch I'd want to be wearing.
( Nice pair of matching cuff links of course ).


Simple, very classy and stylish. Who could ask for more ?.


Thanks for Sharing


Kind Regards


Graham
