    • Nearly 14 years of faithful time keeping and the back has never been opened or serviced, lot to be said for the 7s26 movement.

              • Saw this Vostok on TM and couldn't go past it. I'll get a Russian speaker at work to translate the paperwork that came with it so I can see how much I overpaid compared to 1991 Soviet roubles

                  I got the Vostok paperwork translated and I found the original 1991 price in USSR Roubles was 75.50.

                    So cool. Who makes this one? I’ve been looking at Stowa

                    This is the 44mm Steinhart, was between this and the Laco, as wanted something on the larger side, but to get the clean dial was a big step up in cost on the laco so went for the value option to see how I got on with this size watch.

                • Might be the vintage Seiko endgame for me, this is a Lordmatic Special 5206-6130 from 1972.

                  These share a lot in common with the mechanical King Seiko/Grand Seiko designs in both their movement and cases. The Lordmatic Specials specifically were Daini-manufactured and have high-beat 5206 or 5216 movements running at 28,800bph, the only references in the Lordmatic series that were high-beat to my knowledge.

                  The more commonly found Suwa-manufactured Lordmatics - that used the 56xx series calibre instead - had a significant weakness in that they used a plastic wheel to quickset the date, which has resulted in many of them being purchased in the present day having broken quicksets after the plastic has degraded over 50 years. The Daini-made Lordmatic Specials like the one below use a metal quickset wheel which makes this mechanism a lot sturdier.

                  Charcoal grey dial and a 36mm case that's been looked after really well, it came from a reputable Japanese seller through eBay. It's only 9mm thick even with a fully automatic movement rotor and all, very easy to wear.

                    Wow - that looks like a fabulous Hi-Beat

                    And, this is something of a 'Like Button' record, you are pushing double digits, that is, really great !!!


                    (Whats not 'great' is seeing yet again today our members paying to list watches on an utterly shite forum owned by a pack of overseas based ^*@&#% who charge arms and legs for the 'privilege',
                    Why not bother to support a local forum and its members by offering the watches there for a better price at least at first or in conjunction.
                    Surprised management don't ban members who do this repeatedly).
