    Show your Seikos.

    I can't stop picking up Seikos. Mid price range ones normally and trade bonuses.

    These are my 4 at the moment. Samurai, BFK, Sportura World Timer and Velatura Direct drive.







    Don't wear them, can't pull myself away from Swiss! I like them though. They are great value for money.


    Show yours!

    The watch that all but stopped me buying watches. It's almost my only watch.

    A modded one:



    And a rare one:



    And a couple "in transit"!

    Just these three for now, although I've owned about twenty five others through the years. The last one I built myself from some spare parts.

    A topic I can contribute to, this one!

    First off, my current Sportura trio. The Honda F1 is a brand new arrival, the yellow/black model was bought by accident and now back on e.bay (wanted the lime green one).




    A handful of 7t32 chronographs. I've sold a few, traded some others but these superb little 4 button chrono's will always have a place in the collection in some form.




    A pair of Seiko Boss Kinetics - black is now sold and the white one is probably on the way out...though I am in talks to buy an Orange one!!!




    Another newish one in, silver dial Arctura Kinetic. The third one of these I've had! Lovely looking watch, just awkward.




    I've a few other kinetic divers, but here is an absolute fave and one bought from this very forum! New glass fitted, running like a dream;





    I could keep going all day, I have about 30 Seikos at the moment, but those are the pick of the bunch.


    Oh, and a Pogue on the way - my first one (never been a huge fan to be honest) so watch this space.

    I wore this yesterday, for the first time in ages. I'd forgotten how good it is and how modern they look. Several of the guys asked me when I had bought my "new" watch!

    Can't beat a good Seiko. With the wealth of replacement parts available, you can always mod them if you tire of the look. For example, mine went from this...



    To this...

    I have just snared this from another forum also.. it will be winging it here too very shortly.

    I missed my old one.










    Can't wait.


    The UFO is my THIRD one... having got rid twice, stupidly.



    Can't beat some Seiko love.

    Hi mate....



    Yeah mate, it is the Seiko Nooka.

    Quite a decent size too... and comes with a couple of different colours of glass... white and black.

    The piece was in collaboration / commissioned by Matthew Waldman in 1999. They ended their partnership, and Waldman still produces / sells watches under the Nooka name.



    Greg.

    Always room in my Seiko box for that one Greg, should you get bored.
    I should never have sold it - it's the only running one I've ever seen!

    I love these, wish i had one.

    Just the one Seiko here but certainly won't be the last. Definitely a keeper though. Couldn't be happier with it.

    I recognise this cracker. The new glass has really sorted it.

    It's on my wrist as we speak fella, so it's hardly out of the rotation yet mate.

    But I would actually bear you in mind should it ever leave Kev.

    The 6105 is the only one I kept out of these three. Iím glad I did:



    The second hand tip lume does have more pink in it than this very washed out photo would suggest:

    I have four. Each with a completely different movement and purpose, which wasn't the intent, but somehow ended up as a neat little collection.

    I'm a bit of a Seiko nut and have been since I was a kid and had a Seiko digital in 1981.

    I too have gone a little Seiko crazy of late although, and this is very unlike me, it's the quartz variety that has piqued my interest.

    Just had a very recent cull in which I sold these:









    I'm left with this:



    And this, which I absolutely love. It's relegated a few very expensive mechanicals to the watch drawer. Comes with a very nice bracelet too:

    Is it so wrong that I'm drooling on my keyboard here? Some lovely Seikos in this thread. Gregory's digital is well cool IMH. Like Jneds I too got my first Seiko for my birthday in 81. One of those calculator jobs with the teeny tiny buttons. I was near welded to that thing until the bracelet fell apart. I still have it somewhere, in "well used condition". :) Still works mind you.

    When you consider that when the Seiko guys showed up in the watch chronometer trials in the 60's they were regularly beating all comers in the prizes and only Zenith and Longines were holding the side up(IIRC Patek, Rolex and a few others got their bottoms handed to them on a plate). In the end the local Swiss got so peed off with them winning they changed the rules to exclude them. That's a prize in of itself. While the Swiss were getting together to build the first automatic chrono, Seiko built theirs(6139) a column wheel, vertical clutch, auto that was smaller than the Swiss ones and got to the actual market ahead of them by a couple of months. The fact you can get a vintage one today for a few hundred quid, while the Swiss versions go for multiples of that is amazing to me.

    Their movements don't usually have any fancy adornments and finishing of the top Swiss names, but they seem to be near bulletproof. One example I can think of was a mate's diver(the particular model escapes me). The seals had gone and he wouldn't be the gentlest of souls, so the dial showed clear water damage, the case looked like it had been dug outa King Kong's footprint and when he asked me to look inside at the movement, you could see corrosion all over the place. It looked like a scrapyard in December. Timekeeping? Even in that state, within 10 seconds a day. Seiko, the Tonka trucks of watches. :D

    Show your Seikos.

    Another Seiko victim here... Had an old 6309, love it so much I bought another that was restored. Only watch I have two of. Also forced my self to sell my Sarb065 after serious overspending. Miss it so much that I bought another to replace it which is now on its way to me, only watch to ever sell and then buy again :-). Here is my 6309 duo.




    And my old Sarb065.
