The Watch

The Bell Matic was introduced for the Japan market in 1966, it was one of the first automatic watch with an alarm and centre rotor. To increase sales, they reduced the original 27 jewels to 17 to allow it to go through US customs without the premium put on the higher jeweled movements, crazy to think that was a tactic! The 17 Jewel movements continued to be used until 1978 when the Bell Matic ceased production. The movement has a 42 hour power reserve. This model has the integrated bracelet for a comfortable fit. The crisp white  dial has the day/date feature, baton hands and indexes all nicely finished. 

Points of Mention

This watch is sold as a watch only and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or original Seiko Paperwork. The watch dates to 1977 and therefore is in vintage condition as you would expect, the dial is in excellent condition with a small marking in the centre that is barely visible when on wrist. The watch functions perfectly with the alarm working as it should, there is no known service history with the watch but it is running well.

Personal Note

Another watch that when it caught my eye I had to have it, I always have a soft spot for integrated bracelets for one! But to have that in such a nice design from Seiko in the 1970s, with the alarm function! It makes this already cool looking watch even cooler!
