    well the ladies seiko arrived .. guess the seller was not happy I won it for 1.99 paid more for the postage. it was just dump unwrapped in a padded envelope ..

    so have took the bracelet of clean and repaired it , it's not the original seiko but see a nice early decent looking one , have found a crown for it and it winds and sets but is running 20 mins slow so far and the movement feels loose in the case so guess I got to open it and regulate it and secure it .
    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 ...

    well think am going to flip it as I ant got the right crown in my tat box and I thought I had a box of ss and brass crown but can I find that either plus it sits funny in the case feels loose but suppose that could be just a loud fly wheel maybe and needs regulating so yeah think a quick flip . I have got it from a none working dirty scratched up broken bracelet watch to some thing that looks really nice . so yeah think some one will give it a service it needs now maybe ..

    I got a ralco too looks fair con bit of water damage / or the clear varnished dial is pealing maybe or could be dirt (yes they say it's had a new crystal so guessing dirt /damp like on my old smiths where it sat in a draw for years crystal less ) but it looks sorta right think if not their it would not have spike my interest and the price may have been higher so yes got three tat lots.

    1 set of two seikos one quartz one mech
    2 one special seiko ..
    3 the ralco lot ..

    That is way cool. So an August 72 watch that Mrs Darnborough bought for someone as a Xmas present in Dec73 I guess. So great to have all the paperwork.
