Hello folks,


This will be my fourth Seikomatic-P, and I have grown very fond of these unusual watches, The movements seem very well made, robust and very accurate, considered by some to be s chronometer-grade with their fine regulator, self-compensating hairspring, abundant jeweling and huge balance.


I have never bought from this seller before, dung_chrono, but they have 100% positive feedback, and the watch as pictured looked to be in great condition with a very attractive "beads of rice" style bracelet.

It is a 1968 Seikomatic-P, model 5106-7010, with a navy blue dial, and the well-respected, 33 jewel, automatic, hand-wind-able, hacking 5106A movement.

Taking a closer look, we can see what great condition it is in, and get a look at that silky smooth bracelet. Yum! :p

Here is the famous "pressmatic" crown, with the center section that you press in to quick-set the date. No such convenience for the day however, it's 9 pm to 3 am, back and forth. But that would make sense if you wore one watch, it's the date you have to adjust each month, not the day.

I could not resist wearing it immediately, and sure enough the bracelet is phenomenal! So flexible and smooth on the skin, it feels like you are not wearing a watch at all! :sleep:

I don't know if all "beads-of-rice" bracelets are this comfortable, but it sure puts the icing on the cake!

Thanks for looking!
