Midweek Marauder, Marshaling My Money, Manages 3 Mouthwatering Matriculations
A couple of $200 Seikos and an $80 Citizen!
OMG! A Citizen!
First off, another (my second) quartz "sweeper", this one is a 1988 Seiko 5S21-6000 Contemporary Basic. The listing said 5S21-8000
which would have been SO cool, but it was a lie.
The "secret" to the 5S21 movement is that is used some liquid filled vessel to "damp" the normal quartz "stepping" second hand to give it a smooth sweeping motion akin to the slightly more expensive Spring Drive models.
I hope it will compliment my previous 5S venture, a 1988 5S21-5A00, another Contemporary Basic.
My second scholarship student is a wonderful 1960 Seiko Skyliner.
The condition looks stunning, no day/date, hand-wind "61" movement, if only the case back had some heavy embossed sea creature!
And this one IS
an -8000 model, gosh dang it. it is a 6100-8000 case code.
Lastly, I have tried to be more consistent about searching got Citizen watches, you know, in my spare time!
But it did unearth this unusual vintage Citizen Automatic "skeleton" dial watch.
I was up early this morning, to check on another watch, and threw in an US$80 bid on this one. Checking later, I won!
A little bedraggled, but still handsome.
Kinda like this guy!
Okay, that's all I got for today!
