'New Year...old watches' moves into it's 3rd month with this 70's Eseikor Electra 23....OK this is one those watches I bought back before I knew better...so I have had it a while. This one uses every trick in the book to get you to believe it something it's not. Eseikor? Notice it says Seiko in the middle? I have been told that importers painted over the E and R and sold fake Seiko's. 'Electra' on the dial was used to make people think it was futuristic, '23' wants you to assume that the jewel count (but it doesn't say that), Swiss Parts? Maybe. Hong Kong Dial? That I do believe. I think this has a 1 jewel pin lever movement in it. As bad as all that is...it keeps good time and has a 70's disco feel with the iridescent red striped dial and pale green and crystal markers.

Gary, no matter what or where that one came from, it's out of this world ! cheers ..You know it's funny
all the trouble they went through to change the watch, but that's what makes it so neat really.

The iridescent red stripes alone feel like they are streaming off the dial, and the mix of blue markers,
and diamond markers really pull you in also. Has an almost Rado vibe happening too !!!

Pretty phenomenal Gary ! ..Thanks so much for the insight !


Beautiful choice there also today Darius !  Very Happy Android has always been one of those companies that was
able to make stand out watches it seems. Every line, curve, and all around idea rocks !!!

With the Virtuoso, you get all of that cutting edge technology, design, and ideas, but also a super stealthy,
sleek elegance also ! The watch feels so classic, but also like it came from the future !!!

Has to be awesome experiencing the tungsten too Darius !


Seiko 5 mean green machine again today... Smile
