my "dollar" watch..still works fairly well.
I'm currently wearing the Seiko automatic, but the quartz Seiko and the Casio have seen a lot of use recently as well.
Had to include my old Vostok pocket watch that I got from my grandmother, as she passed exactly two years ago, and here has been some cool pocket watches, so I decided to share mine as well. I don't use it often, and the only value it has is sentimental, but that's exactly why it's important to me.
Never seen a Seiko field watch before, very nice! Vintage, I assume?
Thanks! It's new actually. SRPE65 is the model if I remember correctly.
Glad you posted this. Have looked for DECADES for just the right black watch with orange appointments (visibility for weakening eyes plus my favorite color combo), and looking into yours led me to the SRPH33, which I just ordered.
My smallest pocket watch. 17 jewels. Waltham in a gold filled case. Steel penny for size reference
I'm glad that you found the right watch! It looks great, I like the color combination. The movements on these should be pretty solid too.
I like my daily wearer which is a Seiko 5 automatic. But, if I don't wear it for a day, it stops.
Saw one of these at an antique store last week, had a darkened yellow-orange face but that may have been the age of the plastic crystal. Striking, either way.
I have an old "Scottie" I should post a pic of. Dollar watch
My Westclox "Scottie" that still runs.
Here is a different one from Waltham. Second hand in the 3-o'clock position rather than 6 o'clock. In a gold filled case.This runs too.
Mine is like this one. Now I need to start carrying it again.
That is sharp.
Very Nice! I think the crystal has yellowed on mine. But, it has character!
very cool.i have read they are not easy to service due to their build construction.,no jewels.works happily gaining 4 minutes a day...
Yep, they are what they are but well worth having.
