Seiko Bellmatic 4005-7000 from 1978 (Serviced with NOS Crystal)
For sale is a Seiko 4005-7000.
With the advancement of technology, the alarm function in our smart phone has replaced those in watches and clocks.
That has significantly limited the amount of mechanical alarm watches that watch companies are producing.
With limited options such as the JLC Polaris Memovox and Tudor Heritage Advisor available, prices of mechanical alarm watches can easily reach the price of a contemporary Grand Seiko.
This unique situation allows the value of a Seiko Bellmatic to shine through.
The example for sale features the calibre 4005 which is a rare variant of the more widely available calibre 4006.
The watch comes with an extra pusher at the 2 o clock position for activating the alarm and quick-setting the date.
The black painted hands and indices paired with the flat white dial provides excellence in legibility while displaying beauty through its practicality.
The watch is in mint condition other than slight loss of paint on the hours hand. The watch has been serviced in August 2020 with a NOS crystal installed for clarity.
The watch comes on a brand new handmade top grained leather strap.
Serial number has been covered for privacy.
