Nice watches. Did you pay US $?

Wow thanks for sharing these pictures. I was worried that the watch was a redial. Seeing your pictures makes me want to restore this watch sooner rather than later.The crown on the Lord Marvel looks like a replacement but that shouldn’t matter. The movement number is in line with case number, and case and dial look crisp and fine. The 5740B is a lovely movement. Congrats, great find! Here’s mine (one month older) for reference - of which I’m fairly certain it’s original:

Yes the watch was produced for a short period only. It however beats at 19800 bpm.Your 5740-8000 is the much less common B movement variant. It runs at 21600, not 36000, like the later versions, but the movement does hack. They're easy to spot by the script font under the Seiko name on the dial. Looks really nice.
That Omega is pretty sweet too.
These watches were made for a short period of time, and I got several of them. The 5740B movement was replaced by the 5740 in December 1966.Wow thanks for sharing these pictures.

That is a great looking trio. Enjoy them.These watches were made for a short period of time, and I got several of them. The 5740B movement was replaced by the 5740 in December 1966.
Yours should clean up fast after polishing the crystal. Nice watch! And also a nice Omega.
I am hunting down of the 4th version (Arabic SGP-version) to complete the series...

Nice grabs! I gotta hit flea markets with you!Hi All,
I was on a family trip to Bangkok and was celebrating my birthday in May.
My family decided that a antique flea market visit should be part of the trip. We were at the Chatuchak market and there is a antique mall called the DD mall where we went for a short visit.
There are many stall that keep vintage watches. One watch caught my eye. It was a vintage Lord Marvel 5740 8000. I do not know much about this watch but I liked how it looked. With a bit of hagling it was mine for about $ 120/-.
Let me show you all the watch. I have a few questions on it though.
My question is this watch all original ? Dial is a rare configuration of wich ony o few images are found on the net even after much searching. Is it a redial?
Watch has the rare cal5740 B. In it.
All comments on this watch are very welcome. Watch case and especially the caseback are very good.
My wife was in a generous mood and wanted to buy an watch for me. She picked up the Omega speedmaster mark 4.5. Watch is in good condition and looks all original too. Price was about $2600/- which thought not cheep was a little below the price they seem to be going for. It was also functioning as expected.
All comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.
