Any Seiko Vintage lover?
« on: December 31, 2013, 02:03:05 PM »
Just want to share my newly collected Seikomatic vintage guess around 60's. 14K gold fill looks good. Just that the screw is too small hard to adjust the time. Would like to hear more Seiko vintage story here. Happy New Year!!

i dont know any history of this watch. Bought from japan through a vintage watch agent.
Just like the clean and simple look, and the dial case is consider big case at that time.
Seiko made a lot of watch focus on salary man market. Some of the model like Business-A, Seiko Crown, King Seiko, Lordmatic, are some very age model and is in my collect list.

Hi Chris, you are right. But according to some watch sifu, japan parts is still easy to get while swiss parts is very difficult. Like Rolex Omega, manufacturer stop providing parts to individual watch shop. All have to send back to maker to repair. Thats why keeping japan vintage has less worry on maintenance and repair. How do you think?

From my experience the difficulty to service vintage japan watch anf vintage swiss watches are about the same.

Many seikos parts are inter changeable among different models but many parts are not. Seiko bellmatic parts are especially tough to come by.... :Mad:
