Can you post a picture of the Japanese date wheel? If it is Japanese then this might be a Japan market watch(how it got to Europe in the pre internet era is a story in itself)Oh and the day/date wheel is in both English and what I assume is Japanese. Is this typical?
Sorry, last time I logged on only the case back photo was showing... But I do sometimes have trouble with the pics when I'm using the iPad. Not to worry though - all pics are displaying now, I'd say the problem was at my end.khd....I uploaded three photos....can't you see them?
that's a shame about the strap... However, if it has 22mm lugs it might look cool on a green Obris Morgan strap?Unfortunately the strap broke last night -- split right apart. I visited the Boley site but saw that they don't sell to private individuals. I imagine it would be really hard to find the same strap seeing that I cannot even find the watch online.
Yeah, there's normally so much info available online about most Seikos that it feels strange when you can't find anything! I think there's quite a few Quartz lines from the 80s and 90s that haven't garnered much interest from collectors, so these ones can be harder to research. I tried searching for some info about my dad's old Seiko a little while ago with similar results (https://www.watchuseek.com/f21/my-dads-vintage-quartz-seiko-5931-how-remove-movement-1506962.html)... When I search the codes on the back I only get images of similar models, but nothing identical to my watch.Thanks khd for your comments. Yeah, I was really bummed when the strap broke but that Orbis is nice looking...I'll check it out. I'm still baffled why I cannot find another watch like this one. Seems odd it being Seiko and all with so many watches being made.
