Those of you in the UK who shop at Lidl ( and have very long memories ) may remember these .....
Screw down crown, screw down caseback..and they had the decency not to put some inflated WR on the dial. My good buddy Rab, bought one for himself, and because they only cost £10, he bought me one too.
Here we are 21 years later I fished it out of the bottom of an old box last night, fitted a new battery greased up the caseback o ring and went for a swim, and a sauna and a shower :):):)
I seem to recall my buddy went surfing in his back in the day.

It's a funny old world.Yesterday I buy a Bulova for a couple of hundred pounds and I'm a bit ho-hum...Today I'm wearing a watch that cost a tenner 20 years ago and I'm really happy :)

Thanks, They are among my faves :cool: And the movement case ring is held in place by "Hold Down" tabs screwed into the main plate. ;) I wish all seikos were like that.

I've got this 20 mm Seiko olive green nylon strap lying around. Since it can accept fatty spring bars I decided to fit it to the SPB 051.

I knew JB would be over the moon if I wore it... and I hate to disappoint...

7002-7001 dated March of ‘91 on OEM GL83122 flat vent strap.

I've said it before but i just love that dial - its mint. The best example I've seen as they don't seem to age well. The red text and lovely green not grey with mouldy lume. It looks like the day it was made.

Thank you my friend! It’s nice to own one that hasn’t been fussed with. @SeaCreechur and @GuyJ have some nice examples too.

It seems (*seems*) like this guy is back on track after a lazy weekend. If it’s keeping good time tonight (fingers crossed) then it’s on to my recalcitrant Mako.
