      Not sure why you put rare on here but you can find them on eBay. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. Nice looking watch though.
    2. Wallas, 6 months ago
      Yes, it is rare. There is only one on ebay, white without original straps. I search for more informations. Thanks

      Hi, Wallas. :-)

      Somebody else posted one (with a leather wrist strap) here quite a few years back:

      https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/60000-seiko-1970-6602-8060

      Here's one at Worthpoint with a metal mesh strap:

      Here's another with no strap:

      Here's one in rough shape:

      https://speedtimerkollektion.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=32_223_97_150&products_id=50985

      There are more out there, but this feels like enough of a sample. :-)

      So, a 1970s vintage Seiko wristwatch with 17 jewels called the Parashock?

      Hmmm, Parashock seems to be a Citizen proprietary term:

      *snip*

      Parashock is the name of Citizen Watch Company’s proprietary anti-shock system for mechanical/automatic watch movements. In technical terms, it is a spring-loaded mounting system for the jewel bearings that support the balance wheel. Anti-shock devices help protect the balance wheel’s pivots from damage in the event of dropping the watch or hitting it against something hard.

      This technology was first introduced in 1956. As Miyota and Citizen are one in the same, you will also find Parashock technology in Miyota and HMT calibers. Perhaps as a competitive reaction to Seiko’s Diashock system, Citizen went through extreme measures to introduce their Parashock equipped watches to the market:

      “Our first shock resistant watch was called the Parashock. In 1956 in order to prove its durability the watch was dropped from a helicopter 30 meters above the ground in 11 different cities” -Citizen Watch Co.

      *snip*

      But I still keep looking for information about the year of manufacture and stories about the production lines in this past era. But I think this watch is from the 80s.

      Thank you for your sources @keramikos ! But I am still keeping the search on its history and year of production. This information is missing from the links

      Wallas, You're welcome. :-)

      Here's some guidance on dating Seiko watches:

      Wallas, You're welcome. :-)

      I bought my Seiko watch brand new in 1983 (or so) as my own present to myself for getting out of high school successfully. ;-) :-) It has a similar band (with the addition of little gold parts on each center link) but is otherwise different, having the number 633145 on the back.
      I didn't realize it is a 'collectors item'...for me, its just my "good watch"...?? ;-) :-)
