One of my lately collection!

Seiko LM with movement 5606-7000. Enjoy!





catch from the internet info...
// Lord Matic was a mid range Seiko that boasted the fact that the watch was an automatic that was thinner than all other auto’s of the time. In the beginning the watches were one piece design that you could only remove the movement from the front. Had the 5606 movement that was the base for the King Seiko’s of the time. And KS was a high grade watch that was second to the Grand Seiko as the most top of the line Seiko during the 1960’s and 70’s. //

Mine certainly is not the first then and the condition is not really perfect, there are tiny scratches on the case and a small tiny chip on the glass. Nothin major tho, case is unpolished and the gold emblem is in good condition. The watch runs very accurate to 1 second more a day or 2, i didnt really measure and the PR is about 38 to 42 hours on fullwind.

I have had this watch for many years, i think more than 10 hmmm i dont even remember where i got it. A gift from my late grandfather? He gave me a few watches i dont remember which is which anymore.

Recently got a vintage 1970's King Seiko Chronometer hi-beat from the MWF shop.
It had quite a bit of dust and marks on the dial as well as on top and under the acrylic crystal, the crown tube had lots of gunk inside, the case back was poorly screwed on and it was running slow….

So I opened it up and cleaned up the acrylic crystal both under and on top, cleared out the accumulated gunk in the tube stem, cleaned up  the gaskets on the crown and case back gently, spent an hour slowly cleaning up the dial and markers..
Unfortunately I have no skills to take the movement apart….which fortunately was running well apart from losing time….

and here it is before being put back together and regulated….









wrist shot…now running beautifully…..
