Seiko's "Seikomatic" collection from the 1960s presents some of the most elegant and visually appealing designs of that era.
The Seikomatic series was introduced by Suwa at the beginning of the 1960s and was developed based on Seiko's Liner ultra-thin series. It represented the higher end of Seiko's automatic watch production during that time. As the name suggests, all Seikomatic watches were equipped with automatic movements.
This watch is powered by the upgraded Caliber 395, featuring 39 jewels. Notably, the movement itself is gold-plated and incorporates a calendar mechanism, making it the first Seiko automatic watch to do so. Additionally, it is the first automatic winding movement with a hacking function. The watch also boasts a water resistance of 50 meters, a notable feature for its time.
The case back showcases the Dolphin logo, which is also seen on Seiko's first true diver, the 62MAS series. This particular model includes its original and highly rare stainless steel bracelet, further enhancing its completeness.
Take advantage of this opportunity to own this timeless gem that will be a valuable addition to any collection.
