Hello folks!


I saw a few vintage Seikos I wanted at a popular auction site, from a reputable seller, but his BuyItNow prices were a little high.


And the watches had been up for sale for for a couple of "cycles" where the auction ended and they were relisted, usually at a slightly lower price.


I wondered if I offered the seller a "package deal" if I could get them all, and at a discount. :-O I made a polite and reasonable offer, and it was accepted!!! :-D And I saved even more on shipping!! Woohoo!


Here is one of the more beautiful sights in WISdom, the big EMS bag from Japan! ;-)

A very tidy bundle was found inside the bag.

Inside of which were three more very tidy bundles! Very fastidious. I'll start with the top one...

Hmm, it's a watch box, a Seiko watch box, but of a type I have never seen.

I must say, this seller does an excellent job packing his watches! And this watch box is cute, I wonder if it is vintage as well.

Here is the first vintage Seiko, an early King Seiko made in Kameido. Let's take a closer look.



Click for Big Image



Oops, oh well, here is an over-exposed closer look. :-/


It is a 1968 4402-8000 King Seiko Calendar model, with the 25 jewel, 4402A hand-wind and hacking movement, running at 18000 bph.

Here is the crown view. SWeet! :-D (Do you see what I did there?)



Click for Big Image



And the other side view.



Click for Big Image



And here is the main reason I bought it, the extra cool King Seiko medallion!! :-D Woohoo! Crazy man!



Click for Big Image



Okay, lets move on to the second package. Don't cheat and read that label!! ;-)



Click for Big Image



And I get a little plastic organizer box, as a free bonus!



Click for Big Image



Looks like a watch to me! Let's get closer...



Click for Big Image



This one is a 1969 Seiko Lord Matic Weekdater, model 5606-7030, with a 25 Jewel automatic, hand-wind-able, hacking movement, running at 21600 bph.


A cool model in it's own right, but the main reason I bought this one is the very interesting dial texture, sort of a linen wasp's nest! Wild!

Here is the boring crown. :)



Click for Big Image



The "other" side.



Click for Big Image



And finally, the all-important vintage watch case-back shot.



Click for Big Image



Come on!! Let's keep the momentum going! On to the third box. (Ignore that label!)



Click for Big Image



Another free handy organizer!



Click for Big Image



And another watch-like object, too! Let's go in for the kill...



Click for Big Image



Another King Seiko, in really good condition, and unfortunately another overexposed picture! :-/ Sorry folks I'm usually better than this,


This one is 1972 King Seiko, model 5621-7020, with a Hi-Beat, 25 jewel, automatic, hacking and hand-wind-able movement running at 28800 bph. Whew!



Click for Big Image



Here is the classy KS crown.



Click for Big Image



The other side of the story.



Click for Big Image



The mandatory vintage watch case-back picture.

This watch is in very satisfying condition! :)



Click for Big Image



!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And for anyone that has actually made it all the way down to here, a special treat! ;-)


A NOT overexposed group shot! :-D These are three really fine watches, a early King Seiko with the coolest case-back medallion, a nifty Lord Matic with an amazing dial texture and a Hi-beat King Seiko 56 in fantastic condition.

Too bad about the lume, though! :-D


Thanks for stopping in!

Thanks!

.

Thank you all for your appreciative comments. :happy:


I did run into some extra funding when I sold a couple of S&W revolvers for a big chunk of change. :celebrate: The money was really supposed to go into the "new car fund", but I was getting interested in vintage Seikos, so I decided to spend "just a little" of it. :evil: I just spent the last of it on another "package deal" with this same seller! :eek: I hope I will be able to stop after that! :rolleyes:

Fantastic Thomas,

three of Seiko's finest IMO and in great condition, too!

Keep 'em coming ;-)


Btw.: how about a "full collection" post (or did I miss anything)? ;-)

Best
Hermann
