ORIGINAL 1970S RETRO WATCH
SEIKO BELLMATIC REF 16JL23
Very special and an extremely rare opportunity to own one of these brand new . Seiko model 4006-6050 and a rare mechanical marvel with a little striking hammer inside that sounds and vibrates the watch . You will not find any model Seiko Bell-matic actually from the 1970s anywhere else for sale in brand new old stock condition . Every model I have seen in my life were either worn , used or refurbished . Search the net and test this for yourself to find another one in NOS condition . A watch that collectors dream of having in their collection . This beautiful watch is totally original new condition . Any marks are faint and gained through storage , please see all pictures . This watch would have been VERY expensive in the 1970s and you would have been a wealthy man back then to own one and now an absolute investment and a real bargain .
Features a handsome electric blue dial with chrome/white batons and hands with quick-set day/date window at 3 and alarm ring border . The crown is used to set the alarm ring as well as the time . The top button switches the alarm on and off as well as quick setting the date . The watch case is tonneau shape , all stainless steel with screw back cover . Comes on its original bracelet with all original links and allows fitting up to 7 3/4" wrist . Running smoothly and holding time , and the alarm all in perfect working order .
My first passion was for Seiko watches and find the quality of them is as good as any Swiss time piece and there longevity is second to none .
