Welcome to This Week in Watches – the last episode of 2018. We have some tough news this week, which is never nice during the Chirstmas season. Still, we pay tribute to one of our own and talk about the robbery of a reputed seller. We end with some non-related news.
Robbery at a Dutch Watch Dealer
We’ve long been proponents of Seiko – both vintage and new – and some of you have listened and some of you have scoffed. No worries if you’ve looked away as some watches just aren’t for everyone, but it seems that the day is finally here and Seiko has stepped forward.
Scrolling through Instagram shows us that collectors who have long favored Swiss watches have picked up serious Japanese hardware as of late. Just see this gorgeous 6215-7000 from 1967 that @jackwongyf – a noted Singaporean collector – picked up. Thanks to Jack for the lovely photos! Not a bad way to end the year…
We’ll be back in 2019 with TWIW – Happy New Year!
