Not a real collector

Have two Seikos and a Wakmann.  All are/were my everyday watches.  The Walkman is an Incabloc model with the sailboat on the back cover.  I've seen prices ranging from just under $500 to over $2K.

Unique in that the sub-dials are rounded rectangles instead of round.

A couple of pictures of it from Dec 26, 2022

FYI, same oopsie in your profile text.

Anyway, this is so much more interesting, at least visually, than most things to me that I don't know why you're downplaying it. I normally hate chronos and tachymeters for being cluttered, but this is clean and cool. The bracelet and case shape alone are a wonderful balance of retro without looking dated.

I didn't think I was downplaying it.  It is a watch I bought and did so because it was 'different', and at a good price.  Only recently had I even looked at what it might be worth, not that I will sell it, and the more I read, the more I learn about it and the company that made it.

Very pleased that it has the upscale movement in it.  Like I posted, it runs every time I wind it up.

Sometimes we luck into things of value.  I also have a 100yo tenor Orpheum No 3 Special banjo that was in my grandmother's attic.  Still plays well.
