Morning, if you have a 'special' watch that was also your daily wearer, and you are not sure which of those two collections to box it with, simples.  Put the original with your special watches, and find another NOS for your daily wearer trip down memory lane!  This is the latter, 1980 Seiko Connaisseur.


Original band and buckle, box tags and everything, just like the one I saw 40 years ago in The Lanes, darn Sarf.


Bonus train pic that I took whilst not train spotting, having accidentally run to the station just in time to see it leave.

Purists should look away now.

Changed to one from the shame-well.

6139 movement in a 6012 case, with a 7160 dial and hands from the bits bin.  I likes it despite its franken-ness.
