Modern Watches With a Retro Look.

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... how is it that none of the 'gold' Seiko Retros exist in the UK, but loads are available from the US?

Did Seiko direct all the (slighfly) bling version straight to our friends over the pond, or did our liberated cousins voluntarily snap up anything with a golden glint, only to decide they would be better off filtering them back to us, gradually, surreptitiously... at far more than we should be paying? (Once you include import duty, etc etc).

These things bother me.

I have the gold version bought from Amazon when they were briefly available.

I've been enjoying the old-school charm of this modern repro of a 1st Moscow Watch Factory 'Kirova' today. A Poljot 3133 inside.

A real boon with a 3133 as you know...

...and I'm quite comfortable not knowing what day it is, let alone date.
