Seiko Sportsman

My first watch that I found and ordered from Japan.

I was bored one day in desember, so I looked up whats the equivelant of a web-marketplace in Japan, and I found buyee.

After some scrolling I found this watch, listed for 4300 yen, or about 32$. After waiting for a little over a month it finally arrived. Its fully functional, but the movement probably needs some love, so I will use it as my first practice watch so I can get into watchmaking myself.

Itโ€™s a Seiko Sportsman, mechanical handwinding watch, dated back to may 1966.
