MINTY~EARLY 60s SEIKO SEIKOMATIC 30M "WATER PROOF

Regular price $0.69 Sale

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

 

CASE: MINTY LARGE SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 37mm 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. REALLY IMPRESSIVE. CHECK OUT HOW WELL PRESERVED THAT CASEBACK IS WITH THAT BADASS DOLPHIN. AMAZING.

 

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. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 20 JEWEL IN-HOUSE SEIKO CAL.603 AUTOMATIC.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT MY WATCHMAKER DID MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO THE AUTOMATIC ROTOR TO ALLOW IT TO AUTOWIND MORE EFFICIENTLY. WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A COOL VINTAGE PERIOD APPROPRIATE  BLACK HIRSCH LIZARD STRAP WHICH MATCHES NICELY. 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.
