    Hi, nice catch, the crystal looks good, do you need a new one? If you do, try jmk500 on ebay. Here's a before and after of mine, not the exact same as yours but similar.

    Oh,my crystal is in far better condition but it wears the signs of the time...It`s somehow romantic I think.

    This is my Seikomatic Weekdater. My granddad bought this watch in the 1960s, but I don't know the exact year.

    I was fascinated by it when I was a child, and now that I've inherited it, it's a very special possession to me. I recently had it serviced and restored, and it's like brand new again. The band is a Speidel. I have the calendar that was originally in the band, but it only went up to 1974. I've since found an identical Speidel band with a perpetual calendar, and I'll be changing that soon.

    Posted this in the "What Was Your First Seiko" thread and I guess it also qualifies as a vintage Seiko.

    My Seiko A829-5020. Bought it Yokosuka, Japan when I was in the Navy, would have been fall of 1982. Used it as daily watch into late 90's. I has sat since then, just needed a battery and new rubber strap and was good to go. All functions still work fine. Has taken a beating at times and it hangs in there.

    Re: Let's See Your Vintage Seikos

    Thanks everyone for posting all these awesome vintage seikos WoW !!!!!!

    Here is my only vintage Seiko 1977 ELNIX it was given to me for my 21st birthday and has been my daily wearer nearly since then !

    From what i can work out it has a rather strange and rare movement !!! and lately has been giving me a little trouble but cant find a watchmaker who will touch it !! also i would like to replace the crystal ( in may be glass coz it's thick and protrudes from the bezel )( it has FIVE flat cut bevels on the top face ) and has taken a beating i can tell you to the point
    it's getting hard to read the dial , i would love to restore this watch but can't find anyone who has a new crystal or who will sevice the guts , does anyone hae any suggestions ? would seiko Japan do it ? Thanks for looking !!!Name:  IMG0716234501.jpg

    Self-modded...bought the case and movement for 'spares' on ebay.

    Brown Seiko 5 Sports Speedtimer dial
    New crystal
    New hands
    New orange/red chrono counters
    New black/red bezel insert
    New pushers and springs
    New crown and stem
    New carbon strap
    Case repolished

    The result isn't exactly what you call 'vintage', but very pleasing on the eye and cost under £150.
