In the late 50s, Seiko did a few belt buckle watches, presumably directed towards the sports/lifestyle market. There is also one with a golf motive on the buckle and a fancy one with a silver buckle. The watch is a 17j Unique. These watches are not particularly rare but valued by collectors and fetch decent prices. This one has a bit of wear and staining on the buckle but the watch looks to be in good shape. It originally came with a belt and packed in a special Seiko travel box. Pics from seller.

Clever idea.

I just don't ever want to have to see any gut shots instead of wrist shots. The wrist shots are bad enough!

I believe Jack Wong has/had one of these interesting watches too :)

What a great find! I have never heard of it or seen it before, but it would be a good motivation to cut down beer consumption :)


Thanks for showing!
