And for the sake of brevity, we'll skip the "plastic storage box" pictures, and move right to...


It's a watch! :-D And it looks like an old Seiko!

Yes, it IS an old Seiko! It is 1975 Seiko Lord Matic Weekdater, model 5606-8061, with a 23 jewel automatic, hacking movment, running at 21600 bph.


Another 56xx series, but a 5606 this time with day and date. And another cool bracelet, but the reason for this purchase was the faceted or "cut" crystal. '


These mineral glass versions (unlike the newer sapphire ones) chip very easily so it is hard to find them in good condition.
