I haven't posted on WUS in, literally, ages!
These 3 arrived on New Year's Eve and today visited the watchmaker for new batteries.
They are ..

Seiko King Quartz 9723-5010 (dark blue dial)
Seiko Grand Quartz 9943-8030 (textured dial)
Seiko Quartz Superior 9481-5000 ('snowflake' dial)

The Grand Quartz, unfortunately, shows the right time twice a day (and loses 60 seconds every minute, very pricesely) .. the mechanics of the movement are fine and it spins around on the magnetic quartz tester thingie so I am assuming the problem is with the electronic part of the movement. If anyone here thinks this can be fixed, or has a similar movement with a different problem i'd be interested in hearing from you!

The Superior has a really lovely dial .. it has a sort of snowflake effect which extends to the bezel and bracelet. The hands are highly polished as are the hour indices.

Apologies for the low quality of the photos .. it's night here, if anyone is interested leave a comment and I'll take some better photos tomorrow.
