A beautimous hunk of watch

Postby svaglic » January 12th 2019, 9:30am

Just paid for this, it should ship out today or Monday.

A 4s12 from the 4s hi-beat line.
Look at that color, I think the dial is stunning.
Case width: 39mm (w/o crown)
Lug to lug length: 45mm
Lug spacing: 18mm
Thickness: 12.6mm (to the top of the domed crystal)
Movement: Seiko 4S12 High-Beat Automatic "GMT"
WR rating: 100 meters

I can’t wait to see this in the flesh. I love the 4s movements and this adds to my Seiko and Yema 4s divers. A great movement for a good cost. Credor uses 4s base movements on some of their stuff.

Seiko definitely does blue right and it plays right into my preferences.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.

Love it. 1970s style AF. The sort of watch that goes well with floral shirts and some Creedence Clearwater Revival playing in the background.

It’s from the 90’s and it reminded me of some of the funky Alba’s Seiko put out at that time. To find it with the 4s movement made my day.

Yep..and looks like a comfortable, nice looking bracelet as well..I've got another Credor w/ a similar movement on the way..39mm is a comfortable size to wear, as well..I think you found another underrated gem.. ;)

That is so cool! Never knew there was such a thing as a Seiko 4. Learn something new everyday.

That blue is fantastic. Will make a great addition to your collection.

Really like the blue dial. The extra tymeknob must rotate the inner bezel? Congrats Allison.

Dang. Fuck.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Svag is the Mel Fisher of the watchworld. Very nice.

Can't wait to see more.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - Watch buyer on Reddit

The red one is indeed very cool also (saw it on recon) but it didn't inspire shelling out the fairly considerable coin for it like the blue might have.

Another great catch, Svag. One more watch (or cat) and you're going to have to buy a new house.
