    The Weird and Wonderful World of Seiko

    It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Seiko. There are many fans here too...Domo is a huge fan *LOL*
    To the Neophyte, Seiko is this frumpy department store/mall brand found at Walmart and the ilk.

    There is another side to Seiko. Ok, there's also the side that makes ridiculously expensive crafted watches reaching $400,000 (the Credor Minute Repeater) and the Credor Eichi (not ecchi) for a cool $74,000.

    There is also the Grand Seiko range which rivals anything from Rolex.

    There is an even lesser known aspect to this horological giant..Seiko watches that boggle the mind and are at the cutting edge of cool.

    I guess it's only fitting that I be the first to reply to the thread then ;)

    The coolest Seiko ever is the UC-2100. Here it is pictured with it's optional computer and printer unit.

    I think we have completely different definitions of the word "cool."

    Ohh, I see....So a Seiko computer-printer-watch-thing from the 80's isn't cool, but a Seiko with a detachable TV tuner is cool

    Damn it, CitizenM, what the hell is that thing?? That almost makes me want to turn in my fan-boy card!

    That's one of two designs made for the Final Fantasy movie. One actually did make production, but not this one.
