Regular price $469.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A STRIKING 1962 SEIKOMATIC J13044 IN MINTY CONDITION.  

 

CASE: NEAR MINT LARGE SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 36mm BY 45mm LUG TO LUG.  SUCH A SIMPLE AND ELEGANT DESIGN WITH THE THIN BEZEL AND SLIM PROFILE.  BUT, FOR A WATCH OF THIS ERA IT IS QUITE LARGE AND WEARS NICELY DUE TO THAT THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL AND THAT LONG LUG TO LUG LENGTH.  CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP LUGS AND ALL THEIR AWESOME CHAMFERS AND FACETS. I LOVE THAT KICKASS DOLPHIN EMBLEM ON THE CASEBACK.

 

DIAL: MINIMALISM AND SIMPLICITY DEFINED AND AS CLASSY AS THEY COME.  CHECK OUT THAT BEAUTIFUL SUNBURST SILVER DIAL IN MINTY SHAPE. I LOVE THOSE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL APPLIED STEEL MARKERS AND THOSE PROMINENT LONG MINTY DAUPHINE HANDS.  CHECK OUT THAT POP OF COLOR WITH THE "30" IN BLUE.  COOL SLOPING SILVER CHAPTER RING ADDS SOME NICE DEPTH TO THE DIAL AS WELL.  THIS THING IS JUST STUNNING WHEN THE SUN HITS THAT FACE. THERE IS A MINOR SCRATCH IN THE CRYSTAL ABOVE THE 2 MARKER WHICH I HAVE MAINLY BUFFED OUT. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 20 JEWEL IN-HOUSE SEIKO CAL.603 AUTOMATIC.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN,WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING GOOD TIME AND IS RUNNING STRONG.

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON AN ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND MINTY BEADS OF RICE BRACELET.  REALLY GREAT DETAIL ON THIS BRACELET WITH THOSE STRIATED RICE BEADS. IT'S CURRENTLY SIZED FOR A 7" WRIST WITH 4 MORE MICRO ADJUSTS. THIS IS A CLEAN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF SEIKO'S CLASSIC DESIGNS. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS MODEL IS IT COMBINES THE STYLE AND ELEGANCE OF THE EARLY 60s WATCHES IN A PACKAGE THAT WEARS MORE MODERN.  YOU JUST CAN'T BEAT 60s SEIKO......OR REALLY SEIKO FROM ANY ERA.
