AWESOME~OCT.1962 SEIKOMATIC PROOF AUTOMATIC SPORTS WATCH

Regular price $356.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A STRIKING OCTOBER 1962 SEIKOMATIC J13044 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  

 

CASE: CLEAN LARGE SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 36.2mm BY 44mm 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 FACETED LUGS WHICH GIVE THIS ONE AN EDGY LOOK.  THE CASE BACK DOES HAVE SOME AGED RELATED WEAR, BUT YOU CAN STILL MAKE OUT ALL THE TEXT AND THE DOLPHIN.

 

DIAL: A RARE VARIANT OF THIS CLASSY J13044 DIAL.  CHECK OUT THAT BEAUTIFUL SUNBURST GUN-METAL GREY FINISH IN EXCELLENT SHAPE WITH JUST A FEW SCRATCHES ON THE CENTRAL PORTION OF THE DIAL.  I LOVE THOSE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL APPLIED STEEL MARKERS WITH THOSE PLAYFUL GOLD MARKERS AT 12/3/6/9. THOSE PROMINENT LONG DAUPHINE HANDS STILL HAVE THEIR ORIGINAL LUME WHICH MATCHES NICELY WITH THE LUME PLOTS ON THE SLOPING SILVER CHAPTER RING.  CHECK OUT THAT POP OF COLOR WITH THE "30" IN BLUE.  THIS THING IS JUST STUNNING WHEN THE SUN HITS THAT FACE. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 20 JEWEL IN-HOUSE SEIKO CAL.603 AUTOMATIC.  WATCH WAS RECENTLY FULLY SERVICED AND  HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME MONITORED OVER WEEKS OF ON/OFF WEAR

 

THIS CLASSIC IS MOUNTED ON A COOL VINTAGE STYLE CAFE COLORED LEATHER STRAP WHICH LOOKS SPORTY.  THIS IS A REALLY 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.
