I have a Seiko Lassalle tank watch that I purchased in the mid- to late 1980's. Very thin, gold plated, black crocodile band, blue sapphire on the crown. If I remember correctly, I paid about $250 for it.
As I recall, the Seiko Lassale line derived from Seiko buying Swiss watch manufacturer Jean Lassalle. The Swiss Lassalle movements were shipped to Japan and assembled there into Seiko cases.
Don't believe Seiko still markets this line. Is that true ? What else can anyone tell me about it ?
The watch is in great condition, as I only wore it for dress occasions. In the past few years, I purchased a Rolex, an Omega and a Nomos, so the S-L now isn't getting any wear at all. Thinking about selling it. What do you think ? Is there a collector's market out there for this line ?
