Rare Seiko Credor Locomotive: Gentas Hexagonal Royal Oak
Seiko Locomotive Credor Seikoak: Genta Hexagonal Royal Oak
- Time (Hour, Minute, Central Second)
October 1979 and excellent condition: the rare hexagonal quartz-moved and 1978 Genta-designed icon by Seiko, The Locomotive.
Screwed crown on 4 o'clock, Pasha-like vendome-lugs, an integrated bracelet with hexagonal inter-links in the style close to the Royal-Oak-bracelet, a lavish dial, an hexagonal theme throughout (shape, screws, interlinks) and an obvious Genta-esque luxury-steel-sportswatch character with lumed big and easy to read hands make it an eye-catcher: an unknown known.
The quality of this watch is quite high and being a late 70s product, one will instinctively compare to its peer-group from the same era: Rolex Oysterquartz, AP Royal Oak, PP Nautilus, IWC DaVinci & Ingenieur -- and no question the competitor from Japan takes it on with any of these in terms of quality. High Class.
