This is something special, a pure collectible, or a gateway for you to look back to the good old days. It's the first pocket watch we offer in Samurai Vintage, and it's a rather special one. The Seiko Skyliner 6102 0010 from the early 70s. Altho wristwatch was already a common essential back in the 70s, Seiko still manufacture pocket watches for the gentlemens who love to keep their time in their suit pocket or for those who are inconvenient wearing a wristwatch during their day to day work. This particular example however is non of the above purpose, its a recognition to one's dedication and hard work. This watch was presented to a staff who have contributed 15 years of hard work to the company, a soba powder company in Japan that still standing today as one of the famous soba powder company in Yokohama.
From the condition of the watch, we know that it is well preserved and is close to a new old stock after its years of history. We know that the previous owner has preserved this recognition from his company well as part of his life story. We are glad that this is in our hands and we are dedicated to helping it find the next owner who will love the watch and its history as much as we do.
Seiko Skyliner started its production in mid-60s and is a mid-range model that targeted young middle management of companies who demand a dressy and clean looking watch. With its relatively short production time of 10 years, it is collectible as the style is modern even in today's standard and we can find early trace of Seiko's design language in the watch including the multidimensional brush and mirrored finishing.
This is truly a special one, its rare that you can tell this much about the history behind one vintage watch when you hold it on hand.
