    Truth be told, they do show up from time to time on ebay, but 9 times out of 10, they're in horrible condition; severely scratched hesalite and a case and bezel that have been scuffed to hell. I did a restoration on one a few months ago, took me damn near three weeks.

    Anybody know what watch this is (exact model name, I see it says Seiko 23 Jewels) ?
    and how much it costs?

    In the market for a watch with a brown leather band with a white face. Looking at the Timex 1600 but I like this Seiko more

    Seiko Blue Spark. No longer made. I had one and sold it. Great looking watch, but I just didn't wear it that much.:confused:

    I'm kind of interested in finding something similar to the Jaeger lecoultre Taille Grande Reverso shape . Not really interesting the Armani ones easily found nor any other fashion branded ones. Something by a watch maker but pretty low cost (and elegant). Preferably with a dark brown strap, hands contrasting the face (dark against white or cream).
    Any suggestions?

    That is the beloved, and discontinued, Seiko "Blue Spark"

    There are a couple in one my books. Probably 1940ish. Probably worth $100 or so in Mint.

    No idea who made them.

    Picking up a Vanda order (I miss having a doorman) with SKX007 - the platonic form of a beater watch.
