    Ricoh 21 jewel automatic

    Acquired this recently. I understand Ricoh still make quartz movements for 3rd parties, but mechanical watches were only made for a few years.



    A little bit Rado-like I feel.

    Quickset date button similar to those found on some Sekondas (et al).





    The number on the back (faint) is 61010.





    Any information about the movement would be appreciated.

    Ricoh Sakura. Made cameras and film. One of their better known ones was the auto half. 72 shots on 35mm film, auto exposure from a selenium lightmeter, so no batteries and a clockwork motor drive, good for six or seven shots.

    Indeed. I had a Ricoh KR10 slr camera for quite a few years. Better known for photocopiers though.

    I don't know. It looks 1970's to me.

    Ricoh (Riken Optical) never made film; "Sakura" was the name used by Konishiroku (Konica) for its films, until they standardized on the Konica name.

    Thanks for showing that Marrick. Iv'e had this Ricoh Sakura for about a year and could find out nothing about it when I got it. Yours looked so familiar I dug mine out.
    Hard to show in the photo, but the face on mine is like a two tone paint job and seems to change colors as you turn it. Is your dial like that?
