Let's take a moment....

Post by eddiea on 2013-03-05, 12:27

To remember some of the great Seikos of the 60's & 70's











None of the above are mine (unfortunately) fortunately however ...this one below is Cool , cortesy of Andrew and the Leave a Penny/Take a Penny Seccion of the Trade Fora ..which I would like to recommend to all!!

Love the cushion-shaped divers. I can't keep their model numbers straight in my head. Most of the ones I see available are either beat to all hell or frankensteins.

That was pure eye candy, thanks for posting. What size did they run, back in the day?

Really fueled my nostalgia kick to find a Pogue in good shape- really hard to find nice ones. Mine got ripped off from my dorm room on my fourth day of college.

Cool- ebay makes me nervous, but if you've dealt with 'em I think I'll take a shot. Pics look clean. Thanks Eddie!

I got those listings from the seller's feedback page.

It is the same pic, but me thinking most likely they are different watches, the dude seem to have a mother load of Seikos (heavy on Rados auto too)on hand or, know were to find and restore them around South East Asia...and his watchmaker does a very good job restoring BTW, I have seen some samples .

I've seen some of his West End pieces online and they look good. I'm really thinking about it since I love Pogues and it's one watch where a good restoration would be fine with me.

FWIW, I've had nothing but good experiences with Sophon; very responsive, all-around good guy. But, be very careful in looking at all of his listings; there's so much good stuff, your head will spin... Laughing

I have a Citizen Bullhead from sophon, it's super clean and runs great (even the chrono hand snaps back with a purpose). My watchmaker says all the moving parts are genuine Citizen but I have a feeling that the caseback, dial, hands are not.

Classic, classic designs! Like a submariner, there's a reason why these still sell in high demand on ebay and the forums. A lot more than i can say for some of the watches i see coming out today!
