^^^ Not just any old "Seiko" there. Very nice.

I've been getting into vintage Seikos. I have a couple from my great uncle. This one is from 1977. I also have one from 1968. I also bought a few King Seikos which were very reasonable.

Oops, didn't post the pics. I am quite surprised by my uncle's Seikos. I doubt thwy were ever serviced, but they are running fine and quite accurately! The King Seiko I bought knowing it needed a service.

Got the d.m.h. jump hour. Very interesting and unusual. I need glasses and a steady gaze to read the time on it though...

Did someone say "vintage Seikos"? All of these are from the '60's and '70's. I doubt any of them have been serviced. They all still keep surprisingly accurate time 40 to 50 years later The two on the left in the last picture are Seiko "MACV-SOG" watches from the Viet Nam era. That is a whole 'nother rabbit hole. Needless to say I stumbled into it and became fairly obsessed with them. I probably SHOULD get service for them as I don't always remove my watch before showering. However, just about the time the larger watch community was waking up to these watches, I actually had two vintage Seikos (a Pogue and a SOG) "stolen" by an unscrupulous jeweler in town, so I am really hesitant to take them anywhere. But the seals on these things are undoubtedly completely toasted. I just wear a modern Seiko dive watch most of the time now anyway.

FWIW, after being ‘On the list’ for nearly a year, I gave up on getting a Rolex Sub & bought a Breitling SuperOcean Heritage. Special edition, 1/1000. Love it, very stylish & clearly better built than the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph it replaced.



YMMV.

Cheers,

Paul.

The vintage Seiko bug really got to me. These came in recently. Now I have a 45KS, 52KS and a 56KS. I really need to avoid the Vietnam era SOG watches.

IF you feel the need to scratch that SOG itch, PM me. My wife has been harassing me to unload a couple. I've own a few and never wear them, just play with them. I'd rather sell one to a fellow Pelican that put it on eBay.




Most of the SOG collection.
