Really just another "coming in the mail" post, but the watch is odd enough that I thought I would give it a thread of it's own.
About the "... while sleeping ...", the auction was going to end at about 2:30 am this morning. I wasn't going to stay up that late nor was I going to get up that early. (Not for this watch anyway.) So I to think hard about how much I was willing to pay and what the watch might sell for. Made an educated guess, put in that bid and went to bed. When I got to work this morning, I remembered to check and I won by $10!
If you saw my recent Seiko Leganza posts, Seiko went through an exotic, lumpy, "twisted" tropical phase in the mid-1990s, like my 1994 Seiko Leganza SBBW029 5M23-6B60 Scuba Diver, or my 1996 Seiko SBBT017 7T52-6A60 Leganza Ti Chronograph.
Having accepted those two into my life, I was perhaps less inclined to scroll right past this next unusual watch. It is one of the "Dancing Hands" series, and also one of the early "Presage" models with the "Roman Antique" styling, a 1991 Seiko SAWK001 6M13-7000, that also features a perpetual calendar that you can use to find the "day" of any "date" from 1400 to 2500!
It was advertised as second-hand, but it looks to be in un-worn condition:
I mean look at the bracelet and clasp, they are unmarked! And who has ever seen a "Presage" clasp before?!?!
And according to the seller here is the one "damage point", on the center link. Bah, I can polish that out!!
And here is a fairly comprehensive 15-minute YouTube video from a gentlemen with an example one month older than mine!

I am not the biggest fan of quartz watches, but when it is a cool as this one, I can make an exception.
