    This very same watch was on eBay last year for about £11,000

    I was going to buy it, but it will probably need a service 😂

    Seiko seem to have always come up with brilliant dial designs.

    Whoa! Makes me wonder if the vintage Seikos I happened upon in Thailand last week are worth anything?

    I would say the seller is crazy but what would be the true value of this watch?

    Difficult to say, but I struggle to see where £55k comes from. Certainly it's a rare watch and in NOS condition, but it is still a steel watch. There are certain watches can be worth money if they are connected to current models, like for example a 1961 Alpinist (Laurel) would be worth something to collectors, but I don't see that with this model, although I might be wrong.

    I'd stick my neck out and say a few grand tops, if that.

    No Date. So I'm out. Quite like the dial but the lettering spoils it.

    Are the savants certain this is even a genuine Seiko? The too-fresh look and inevitable "17 Jewels" reeks of Made-in-India fakery to me...

    If you drive a hard enough bargain you might be able to get him to pay that for you!
