Eterna Sonic Sevenday Tuning Fork Electronic Watch

While Accutron gets the lion’s portion of consideration with regards to tuning fork movements, Bulova was not by any means the only one using them. Eterna was another brand, and they advertised their tuning fork watches under the name Eterna Sonic.  

The Eterna Sonic Sevenday we have here has that exemplary late ‘60s/early ‘70s   tasteful. The silver dial has a light sprinkling of patina and a day/date window. The steel case includes straight carries and the first marked crown. The completion looks unpolished, as can be seen by the device marks working on it back.

These aren’t excessively common in nature. I would say, these are very precise watches, and they’re a great expansion to any assortment.

NOS  SEIKO 5 (around 1970s) 

Here’s a genuine find! This is a 1970s Seiko 5 game watch with unique bundling, papers, and labels! You truly don’t find complete sets frequently, and that’s particularly evident with vintage Seiko. I’m not certain what the model is (it’s unquestionably not “511WS” as it’s recorded here), and I’ve never seen this one in my numerous long stretches of gathering. Notwithstanding, it has a stellar charcoal dial with lume-filled steel markers that are suggestive of the mythical 62MAS jumper.  

The external Seiko box is somewhat unpleasant, however the actual watch is very perfect, and it incorporates the first wristband. Include the papers and the hang labels, and you’ve got an extraordinary minimal set here.

Seiko SBDC003 “SUMO” Diver

Ok, so this one’s not vintage, but rather you just can’t beat the Seiko “Sumo” (SBDC00x) for value for-your-money esteem with regards to jumpers. This is the blue dial/bezel form, and it’s in extraordinary condition. The beginning offer here is under $200, and these don’t appear available to be purchased time after time (they’re generally up with a “buy it now”). In the event that you can catch it for under $300, you’ve got yourself a significant bargain!

Vintage Waltham Diver (with a Tropical Dial)

Finally, what we have here is a truly decent Waltham jumper with a tropical dial. I truly like this model, to a limited extent in view of the manual breeze movement — you just don’t truly see respectable vintage jumpers with manual movements time after time. Notwithstanding the even patina on the dial, the case is in magnificent condition — it has an unpolished completion, the first crown, and a bezel embed that’s in extraordinary shape.
