Well, tomorrow I go to the Seiko museum complete with an English speaking guide. I embarked on this trip without packing 1 of my 30+ vintage Seikos (Speedy and Sub in tow) figuring is pick something up here. Well, I ambled down into the basement of Isheda in Shinjuku to check out the used area figuring on finding only Swiss. What did I find in near NOS condition for about $3300? Let's just say I'm poorer now but have a wrist ornament for tomorrow. Argh!!

Thanks all. This is a difficult watch to photo...I'll try more when walking around but the case is so sharp that is creates serious shadows while trying to shoot pics.

In any case, the quality is ridiculous. IMO, the finishing competes with about anything 2x the price. It's that good...I know that's not news but it's my first GS.

By the way, Isheda has one new gold version (yellow) they're willing to sell 20% off so 1.2M yen. Pricey but it was beautiful for the one who's willing.

Congratulations, a gorgeous looking watch.

The basement at Isheda does normally have a few nice pieces but their range of Japanese watches is normally quite small.

Most of the watches I have seen there have been much higher than normal market rates, so it is good to see someone get something so nice.
