Just thought I would share a lot I managed to win at a local Perth auction house. As a military watch collector I was first drawn to the trench style watch which appeared to have a Bonklip strap attached. Also there were two Seiko watches which made the lot worth having a bid on. I was able to personally inspect the lot and found the strap was a Bonklip and for those who know anything about these straps will know that lug size equals dollars. This one had a lug size of 18mm so would be worth getting. The Seikos were a 6139-7100 in fairly good condition and running but with an engraving as presented from a local advertising company in 1976 and a 6601-9990 from 1965 not running. The rotor on the 6601 moves freely so hoping it may just need a service. Very happy with the 6139 but wondering is it worth putting some money into the 6601 to get it running as I am not familiar with this model
