A pimped Bell-Matic

Apr 30, 2021,01:54 AM

This is a Seventies Seiko Bell-Matic mechanical alarm with automatic winding for the timekeeping, manual wind for the alarm, day-date indicator, lume, gold trim, etc. 

It works just fine; like new. 

The bracelet is new, it’s a bit Frankenwatch actually but I still smile when I wear it, see it sparkle, then feel/hear it’s buzz. 

Are there any other Bell-Matic fans here?

My first alarm watch will almost certainly be a bellmatic.

Looks great & to me the 70s vibe is part of their appeal. Here's mine with it's brown metallic dial - very definitely of its era. The other good thing about a bellmatic - is there are so many versions available. Cool alarm for sure. Cheers JML ...
