Seiko manual wind 1966

  

I think that the Seiko 66B is the last mens manual wind that Seiko made even though it was hugely popular movement produced from the early 60’s through to the mid 70’s

Most of the models that used this movement where basic dress watches, plain design yet elegant, reliable, shock resistant, accurate and easy to repair…. a favourite with watchmakers. This particular model from 1965 was extremely popular and was one of the many Seikos of the period that catapulted the brand into the number one watch manufacturer in the world.

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
