If it had a sapphire crystal I’d get it
Nor on the American Documents
Some lovely watches for sale here...
Guys, anyone owns a King Seiko? The prices seem to vary quite a bit. How much should I expect to pay for a decent one?
Amateur! Spotted these pro-level dinner plates this afternoon:
Love a good Deisel ting
Still waiting for my replica MN straps to arrive :-(
@inchpincher no worries cheers, I am getting a bit better at it!
Fucking dinner plate sizes innit
Yep, I own this 1971 KS 4502-7020T. It’s a manual wind Hi-beat (36,000 bph), hacking seconds, quick date snap at midnight, outstanding value for money... I think I paid ~ £400.
By contrast these other two on eBay are £400 and £900 and perfect examples of how polishing and tarting up can destroy the character.
I’d say £500 can get you a nice example if you’re patient and do your due diligence.
Yeah, this. It does depend entirely on the reference though. Does it have date? Time and date? Time only? Movement speed? Case shape? Medallion on the case back or no medallion? Case material? Etc etc etc.
Reddit.com/u/karlenko123 is always reliable for good value King Seiko.
What a lovely watch, this is pretty much exactly what I’m looking for!
£500 seems about right. Thanks!
Well I’m supposed to be selling it because of another purchase but I can’t let it go yet. If I do I’ll drop you a message.
There’s a watch fair in Uxbridge this Sunday I’m going to if anyone fancies a coffee...? https://timefairs.co.uk/brunel-fair/

Does anyone have a Speedmaster Moonphase? Thinking about it for a birthday watch but the size sounds huge
Happy Friday. New watch for me this week.
this is awesome
BOOM! Love it.
I hate the case/strap texture but can’t imagine it any other way.
You just won the thread topic.
The matte black plastic makes it wear a bit smaller than the dimensions I think (42 x 14mm IIRC). It feels quite toy-like but that’s kind of the point isn’t it?
Thanks all btw. Not sure about winning the thread, wait until @inchpincher gets here. 👀
New watch for me too, loving that Swatch btw.
Sure, it’s not even lunchtime yet.
Been wearing this all week with the moody Erica. Generally quite comfortable. Need to finish stripping the remnants of the black paint some time, and find the little external lug plate cap thing that had fallen off.
Bad photo, phone camera is broken.
My trusty, cheap Seiko on the wrist today.
Last day of our holiday... I was going to bring my GMT but Tenerife is the same time zone as the uk!
