Up for grabs is an orange seiko soxa mod. This has hands, chapter ring, dial and bezel insert from yobokies the crystal is from dagaz and the bezel itself is from yet another source. I had it professionally assembled and pr sure tested by a local watch maker in the Phoenix area. I have have an uncle seiko beads of rice for it as well. By the time I gathered the parts and paid for the assembly and testing I have quite a bit into this. Looking to move it along as it’s not getting wrist time due to other purchases and I need some motorcycle parts. If you have any questions hit me up here or email me amhale18 at gmail
Bought a watch from watchdork, this place continues to impress me, I was worried because he said there were some marks on the crystal.......... I can’t find them. I’m going to have to look at it through the optivisor later out of curiosity I hope to buy from him again. ...
I bought some NATO straps from watchdork. Wow! They were exactly as described and packaged very securely. Best part, they arrived almost instantly! I couldn't believe they were in my mailbox a day ahead of what was already a fast ship time. Very much appreciated!!! Craig
The company was founded in 1881, when Kintarō Hattori opened a watch and jewelry shop called "K. Hattori" (服部時計店 Hattori Tokeiten?) in the Ginza area of Tokyo, Japan. Eleven years later, in 1892, he began to produce clocks under the name Seikosha (精工舎 Seikōsha?), meaning roughly "House of Exquisite Workmanship". According to Seiko's official company history, titled "A Journey In Time: The Remarkable Story of Seiko" (2003), Seiko is a Japanese word meaning "exquisite" or "success" ("exquisite" is usually written 精巧 from Chinese jīngqiǎo, while the meaning "success" is usually written 成功 from Chinese chénggōng).
Seiko is perhaps best known for its wristwatches, all of which were at one time produced entirely in-house. This includes not only major items such as microgears, motors, hands, crystal oscillators, batteries, sensors, LCDs but also minor items such as the oils used in lubricating the watches and the luminous compounds used on the hands and the dials.
