  1. I was too late for a Seiko recently! Missed out by 2hrs on the simple time only piece but with an enamel dial.

  2. Just read you Facebook post about this blog story.

    It always makes me smile when I read or hear about Seiko. I have a Kinetic Auto Relay for the last 16 years, given to me by my father. At the time is was about 600 euros, which although not a lot by any standard was an absolute fortune for me at the time. I have worn that watch EVERY single day for the past 16 years, and if I take another watch, I wear the Seiko on my right wrist.

    All in all, Seiko was the watch and the brand that “introduced” me to the watch world. Which is why I smile when I hear about it.

    Good post, doc.

  3. This reminds me of the Seiko I wish I had bought; the porcelain face Eichi which was made with some inputs from Dufour if my memory is correct. Seiko only made five a year and may have stopped.

    Yours is a fascinating blog; I have similar interests in watches (only own a few though) and high end audio, which is why I suppose! Your lamps reminds me of some Yamashita Shinichi cyborg dolls in the collection of the famous Japanese collector Kitahara.
