Browsing the forums at WatchUseek, I decided to click the Seiko/Citizen/Orient forum for a change. I noticed all these posts with subjects which look like total jibberish to me. Weird feeling, because I was under the impression that after almost 10 years of this watch crazyness, I could identify most watch descriptions. Anyway, a good way to start was to click a thread called ‘Pics of your current Seiko collection’ where WuSยฌย†visitors are being asked to participate by showing their Japanese watch collection. Pictured below is the Seiko Gyro Marvel watch with automatic movement cal.290 dated ca 1959. Owner Robert has a bunch of Seikos in his collection and shows them with pride!

By the way, I don’t have an opinion on Japanese watches ๐Ÿ™‚ I just prefer Swiss or German watches. Having said, I really do like my Casio G-Shock limited edition (20th anniversary on the original G-Shock DW 5000 dating 1983) I bought in 2003.
