When you think of Seiko this watch probably doesn't spring to mind? But after seeing it in person and having it on the wrist I have to say I seriously love it! I even love the fact that the logo looks nothing like Seiko have done before and the font used for the branding, the whole thing is very Seiko but very under the radar Seiko at the same time! You get real presence on the wrist despite the case size of 35mm and the watch just screams charm in my opinion!
If you want a vintage Seiko but something different to the usual stuff then this is perfect! Stand out in a crowd at a RedBar event or with your group of watch friends, this is a real conversation starter!
Here we have a beautiful Omega DeVille from the 1970s, it comes on an original Omega beads of rice bracelet that feels incredible on the wrist and goes perfectly with the 35mm beauty! The Cal 565 is a great movement that features a date, but without a quick set position, if you pull the crown out to the very last position it will progress the date by 1. To access the movement if is through the front, crystal and bezel will come off and then through the dial. It was serviced in November 2017 and running very well, this watch will serve you for many many more years than it has already served others!
I still get at least 1 email a week asking for the blue MONSTER I had previously... So to all of you who missed out on that beauty we have this gorgeous MONSTER for you, so don't miss out again! This is a 2nd Generation MONSTER which has the teeth indices and this one is also Pre Prospex! Which means no Prospex logo on the dial which I know is a bugbear for a lot of you out there.
Vintage, oversized, 18k rose gold, manually wound chronograph, even patina, what more is there to want? I believe these Brands that are no longer with us offer some of the best value in the market, whether it be for a classic dress watch or something more like this beautiful Chronograph. The 38mm 18k Rose Gold case is a lovely warm rose gold tone instead of the deep copper colour we see today in modern watches, vintage rose gold is always a warmer tone. It contrasts perfectly to the dial which has developed beautiful and even patina over time, the blue telemeter scale and red tachymeter scale on the dial are still in great visible condition.
The watch is powered by a serviced Landeron 149 and has a great actuation when initiating, stopping and resetting the chronograph. The watch is paired on a nice Geckota brown leather strap which compliments the warm tone of the 18k Rose Gold and makes it an absolute treat to wear.
Points of Mention
The watch does have patina on the dial. The case was professional polished and is in good condition, the crown was replaced with a tone correct 18k rose gold crown when serviced, the watch was serviced in 2018 and running great.
When people talk value in the industry it's always a tough one as value means different things to different people. When I see a 18k gold vintage chronograph for under £1000 I see incredible value! If this watch was to have a more recognised brand on the dial it would be anywhere from 3x or 10x depending on the brand, that is value. Plus I like the idea that you will probably NEVER see another on someone's wrist.
Vintage Seiko is always something special and whenever we get one in we all get very excited, however this one put us dead in our tracks. The design of this watch is so well thought out and shows what Seiko do well. The crosshair silver dial has developed a lovely and even patina, the gold tone hands are in great condition. But where this watch gets me is that date, it is a black date with gold text, how damn cool is that? Then a gold tone inner bezel, this watch is just beautiful.
If you are a Seiko fan then this watch is easily a no-brainer! However if you haven't given Seiko a chance in the past I would say here is your chance with a beautiful reference and one with a history that can continue to fascinate for years to come!
Points of Mention
This is sold as a watch only, no box or paperwork is provided and there is no service history. The watch features a gold plating which is showing signs of wear and discolouration in places, however it doesn't look out of place in my opinion due to the watch clearly looking old. The dial has developed an even patina, please see the photos to make up your own decision. The watch is in running condition and comes paired on an original leather Seiko strap.
I love this watch. I think if my description didn't show that then I don't know what will. I mean just look at the photos! If this watch had a "Prestigious Swiss" brand name on it I easily think it could be 10x the price and depending on that brand people wouldn't even take a double look and just buy! Snatch this up.
I have owned and sold multiple Seiko Turtle's now and this is by far my favourite! I absolutely love that Seiko decided to do something quite different with this one and they really did it well. The black dial and black bezel, the offset of grey on the bezel and the colour of the surround on the lume... Compliment all that with the iconic and striking orange minute hand! Boom you have a seriously awesome watch for photos and, most importantly, on wrist! To anyone who has tried a Turtle on I don't need to mention how they wear, for those of you that haven't they wear perfectly!
