And once again, we'll skip the "plastic storage box" pictures, and move right to...


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

OMG, it really is an old Seiko! :-O This one is a 1963 Seiko Champion Calendar model J13078, with a calibre 860, 17 jewel, hand-winding movement, that runs at 18000 bph.


A distinctive watch, and a fine accurate movement, but sadly the real reason I bought will be revealed below! :)

The other side.

And the case-back, with the cute little Sea Horse. And yes, it was for the little Sea Horse that I bought this watch! :-O I am trying to collect at least one example of the different case-back sea creatures Seiko used in this period.



It's not a crisp as I had hoped, I'll keep my eye out for another one! :-D

Oh well, only one more to go. :-{ I'm kinda sad about it...


Please look for the final post, "Seiko Package Deal 2f".


Thanks for hanging in there!
