Seiko 6m26-8050 "dancing hands"

Recommended Posts

What a crazy movement. From the 1990s when quartz was the future and fifteen seconds a month was so much better than cosc that it probably didn't seem worth trying to improve the accuracy of quartz, this movement packs everything the 7t movements were doing with six hands into a three hander. Turn the crown to change modes and the hands swirl around to the appropriate point on the dial. When you're done, they smoothly pick up the time again. There is a perpetual calendar, chrono, timer and alarm. There's even a mode where the hands just dance for the hell of it. 

Absolutely bonkers. I can't believe this example is as clean as it is. I've been after one for a while and I got lucky with this. I like watches that contain abandoned technology and I love JDM discontinued models. 

This came in a few different versions including a Sus, but I think this is the one.

@badgersdad Andy thats the nicest design ive seen on a dancing hands and with all the functions incorporated via modes controlled in the date window it keeps the dial clean. Nice, where did you find it? I cant find another for sale.

@NigelpI've had an ebay alert on for a while. This one came from Slovenia. There is a silver dial in the same case that is pretty nice and comes up more often than this black sunburst. These GS/KS case shapes tend to go for a bit more - maybe £150-180. I was the only bidder on this. Just lucky.

its another off the radar jdm seiko that should be worth more like the KQ GQ. Enjoy it.
