Stainless Steel 38.75mm Seiko 'Bell-Matic' 17
A stainless steel 38.75mm Seiko 'Bell-Matic' 17 jewel automatic alarm wrist watch with day and date function. This was Seiko's answer to the Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox and the Omega Memomatic. The watch has two crowns, one for setting alarm, the other for classic watch functions. There is an internal, rotating bezel which has a red section, and a lume filled triangle that allows for accurate placement of the alarm time setting. It can also function as a timing bezel for one hour, such as on a Rolex Submariner, without the need for the alarm to go off. The alarm itself is loud enough to hear, and vibrates on the wrist. The cushion shape case is very comfortable on the wrist, and the watch comes on a new old stock brick link signed Seiko bracelet. The watch is a fantastic looking piece, with a great and useful additional functionality.
The unpolished case and all orginal dial are both in excellent condition. The lume is all complete, and shines evenly and well under UV light.
