    **** Vintage Seiko- And others from the 1970's/80's ****



    Well was thinking love me a old vintage watches both quartz and mech plus the odd hybrids too but we never get to see them much mean for me got three lord quartz and an old 7000 I think it is.



    But am guessing got to be more out their know I have seen some old grand quartz and a king quartz ? on here so been looking at some tat lots for some thing to tinker with as I fancy a few more.

    These three I had as a tat lot and I cleaned and repaired them, even mange to source a bracelet for the best one that was the right type and age.















    So what have you got ??

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Not Seiko, but the case containing your very handsome, newly refurbished Lord Quartz strongly brings to mind this favorite from my own collection. Vintage 1976.

    **** Vintage Seiko- And others from the 1970's/80's ****

    Iím between my next 6139-6002 (Progue). I must have had six or seven now yet I still keep buying them. Problem is I get one, itís not at all like the pictures indicated so I restore it then sell it a month later. I still keep hoping for one with a case in better condition. So I have nothing. Only vintage in the box is Dads Zodiac.

    yeah one's on my list but so hard to spot a good one from a frank or worse plus thiers only one pogue but the right colour combo triples the value it seems
