Here are a few of mine. Very Happy

The Seiko Sportsmatic

Seiko Skyliner

Seiko H249-5060

" />

Seiko 4336-8110

" />

One of my favourites, with the television dial, a Seiko 5 code 6309-5300.

" />

Another favourite, a Seiko 5, 6119-8083, which has a "panelled" glass which seems to be impossible to show on a picture.

Apologies for the misalignment of some of the pictures, just my poor technology skills. Rolling Eyes

Seikos make up the majority of my collection. I started by collecting anything I fancied and could afford, then started to be a bit more selective. I still probably have too many ! Laughing

I started exactly the same way just over a year ago buying what I liked and enjoyed but like yourself I have now decided that my collection will mainly be Seiko and Seiko orientated .

Here's my modest little Seiko collection. A quartz pilots chronograph from circa 1985, a Bellmatic and a quartz sports chrono. The Bellmatic is my favourite, it dates from 1973. Great watches, I'm determined to get a Seiko diver, or two next year!

I'm not a great lover of quartz, but I like your Bellmatic !

Here's my two, one all original, one Franken from everyone's least favourite Evilbayer Beejoo4 (before I knew better !)

It's a watch with an alarm. Not particularly loud, more of a buzz when actually on the wrist

You can never have too many watch pics Very Happy

I'm interested in how your collection evolved. Did you buy selectively from the outset in terms of specific models and condition & at what point did you decide to focus on Seiko watches? I never realised there were so many models and variations in design.
