Seiko Dolce

Recommended Posts

i bought this after NigelP posted its availability on the Cash Convertors website, so thanks NigelP [ i think] :thumbsup: :angry::thumbsup::angry::thumbsup::angry:, to be honest i dont need much encouragement to buy a watch:laugh:

Its the Seiko Dolce 5E31A-7A50, i mistakenly thought it had the 8J41 movement in it and bought it as a donor movement for a project i have in mind, the 8J41 is an HEQ thermocompensated movement accurate to 10 seconds a year, now that sort of tech "beebs my horn" :toot:

it turns out though that the 5E31A is a relative and is accurate to 20 seconds a year, not to be sniffed at :yes: whats a loss 20 seconds a year anyway?

problem is its too good to break, from what i can gather it dates to around 1995/6, it is in super condition with a flat unmarked sapphire crystal, the only negative is a tiny dot above the 6 marker that is only seen at certain angles, the case despite the super critical images is actually very good and would take a light polish

so......what do i do? do i break it or not?  one thing is for sure though, i will never wear it, just not my thing.

I think I would keep it intact and stick it on sales corner for trade, you might get a watch you will wear and someone might take a liking to the Dolce and wear it. Its worth a try:thumbsup:

I'd say that unless you really want to use the movement, then maybe let someone else enjoy it. Or just break it :) 

so either then :laugh:

Stick in the trade section against the movement you want. Ugly watch, breaking it might improve its looks though.:thumbsup:
