    I received this one as a reclamation project "gift" from my Father about five years ago. It spent the better part of a decade not running on the upper shelf of a bookcase in the New Mexican sunshine...which is how the dial achieved such a unique aesthetic...

    He gifted me the watch in 2015, and it was shortly after that I caught the "watch bug" and had the watch serviced and the case a bit touched up - which I normally would never do - but as this watch will never be sold, and I love the look of the dial, I wanted the case to look sharp.

    I distinctly remember when he got this watch in the late 1980's, it was partial payment from a jeweler-friend he'd done some work for. As my Dad had been a lifelong Seiko wearer, it was a major upgrade for him. I also have its steel and gold rivet-style bracelet, but it needs a jewelers attention, and I've only ever worn it on a strap, so relatively low priority to "fix".

    Here's one more pic, just to make this audience appropriate!

    After changing the strap on this one from black to brown and taking some pics I thought that it might as well be waffle with cocktails:)

    Bought the day before lockdown for £65, so I miss the cut on watches under £50 bought during the lockdown. Still, not too unhappy about this one.

    Again the Vacheron Constantin Overseas but today with the blue OEM rubber. Wears very comfortable and light compared to the heavy and solid bracelet. I’m loving it! ::love::
