Seiko with a Swiss movement

Seiko with a Swiss movement

Postby koimaster » May 28th 2017, 5:20pm

I have an unusual Seiko SYKZ980 (5328-0010) from the mid 1980’s. This is a mechanical watch that has a basic layout with a seconds sub-dial.

The watch design is quite basic and it has a simple case and dial design. The crown is un-decorated and the dial is easy to read using the traditional Seiko font that can be seen on models all the way back to the original Laurel.

The case is plated base metal with a stainless steel snap back.

Looks like the movement has only received an internally assigned calibre number from Seiko, because the design looks as FHF-style as possible... The 138.001 appears to be a derivative of the 362:

One thing's for sure, that's a Seiko one doesn't see every day- lucky bastard, the guy who got his hands on it. And on top of being uncommon, it's in one hell of a condition.
