WatchOtaku : Seiko LM postmortem

Seiko LordMatic 5606


  • Unusually good movement, nicely repaired and tuned by Jose Sotto
  • Gorgeous dial and hands
  • Day and date - nice as a dress watch


  • Digned-up gold-plated case; requires electroplating to fix.
  • Just not getting worn


Cool watch, but not for me. Sold to a nice young WIS in Puerto Rico for $50. These days, the Stowa is much more my idea of an ideal dress watch. After this and the Gyromatic, I'm leery of vintage anyway.
