Got this at a Spanish car boot on a recent holiday, the old guy with the stall had loads of old watches, some I'd never heard of 'Royal' was one, the others I forget but there were also others I did Ingersol, Record all the usual suspects of all ages including a few'trench' watches interestingly he had several old Citizens from the 1970's all identical that could have been NOS.
Sadly I wasn't expecting much in the way of watches to be there so this was all I could afford as I only took a 10 Euro note!(not next time)
A seiko 6106-9050 Automatic in full working order though with a replacement strap and in need of a new crystal.
I think he was an old watchmaker or disposing of a friends collection but they were all in vgc, all clean and working.

I guessed 1969, and I like that its in Spanish as it serves as permanent reminder of my holiday(and also serves as practice for the Spanish days of the week), As for the ones that got away I have orders for my mother who is going there in early November and I am back in March next and many of the stall holders are regulars so there is a chance...one thing for sure I'll be going with more than a 10 Euro note next time, sad thing is I took 200 Euro specifically for the car boots in the area just didn't take it that day! still it was a decent enopugh buy for 6 Euro that I paid I think.
