    My brother's Seiko Sportsman, Diashock, 17 jewels, purchased at the PX in Viet Nam, circa 1967 or 1968. On the back is what I assume is a serial number - 6N02823. Given to me as a Christmas gift in 2010.

    Battle tested and still running 45 years later.

    The band is not original, as it is made in China.

    Regards.

    Like many watch collectors without really trying have a few. Most used for 10 years is junk sale ugly yellow dial quartz chronograph-calendar-alarm. Main attribute is very bright luminous dial. One good mechanical Pressmatic I have not seen in here. Built and finished like present custom models.Click image for larger version.

    Here's a 6217-7000 World Timer that was given to me in the 80's by a friend who had no use for wristwatches. It's my only Seiko. Indeed my only Japanese watch.



    For years I didn't wear it because the crystal was so crazed it was hard to read. The crystal's replaced now but I would like to find an original band. I don't like the way it looks on a leather strap. This is a first run Tokyo Olympic model. You can just make out the etched logo on the back.



    It's unfortunate that Seiko didn't make the markings more durable. It keeps great time, never been serviced afaik. An impressive feat. Joel

    This is my Seiko 'S' with a Seikosha movement and a glass back, it was made around 1948.
    The outer portion between the dial and the case is cut-away between the hour batons.
    I also have a 1940's Super with a Seikosha movement.

ID:	128864Seikos, always a favorite because they are cased as good as a Rolex, always have been. It is the secret of their success. Here is a 70s 33j automatic, one of the very few Seiko automatics that can be hand wound.

    It came from my late father-in-law. It is automatic. I hardly ever wear it because the strap buckle is faulty. I wonder what strap it should have?

    The seiko automatic I had when did Seiko start putting "5" in a shield on the dial? Mine did not have this "5", did not remember the movement ID but i know it had classic patented weight gear and a gear cam (1:1 with alignment marks) with ratchet claws with cam that wind ratchet wheel, with pinion to turn mainspring gear. The oscillating weight is 180 degree mass type not the later 100 degree type.

    Cheers, Watchfixer
