My Collection of Seikos

Although I had a handful of watches before I started collecting, mostly digital the first range of watches that really got me hooked were Seikos. I have more expensive or maybe even prettier watches but I love a diver and I love an automatic. It was the SKX models that sucked me in initially. 

Put my SKX007 on a new strap today. Was the first watch I ever modified with a simple black NATO originally.

Can't recall the model on this one but it was my daily watch for a long time

Fancied a Seiko 5 so picked this one up pretty cheap from Creation Watches

This is coincidentally a very similar Seiko 5. My grandfather offered me and my two cousins a choice of one of his watches. I opted for this one as I was already a Seiko fan by then. He passed away a couple of years later (at the ripe age of 85)  so this is a sentimental one.

The one you can't remember, Alex, is a Seiko 'Sea Urchin', SNZF15, I think for the Pepsi model.

The Sea Urchin nickname comes from the fanciful resemblance of the 0-20 markers on the bezel combined with the markers on the chapter ring which are supposed to look like the spines and tube feet of sea urchins.
