Read a swedish newspaper the other day that had an add for Seiko Spring Drive. Whats that, sounded like a new thing but they have had mechanics before in there production? What´s the fuss?

I´m in the future thinking of buying a top notch mechanic dress watch since I plan on doing that every decade:-D . Last expensive buy, in my budget at least, was a Oris Big crown 2001, and Seiko would be a good alternative for me since Omegas, Breitlings and such are so well known as high end. The Oris is, and a Seiko would be, not very obvious premium choiche for most people her in Sweden. That I like. I want something special but not necessarily the world to know about my weird affection:p

Regards

The Seiko Spring Drive is probably the biggest evolution in mechanical watch movements since the auto winding mechanism.

Search the web for info and be sure to check this link:

I have a Spring Drive Seiko Marine Master on order from Japan now and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.
Thank you so much for the tip, really fascinating and time saving - I dont have to go to the store and check it out, cause it´ll be in the same price league as a Patek when I try to buy it:-D

Regards
Erik

ps But you´ll never no when the bug is on you:p
