1964 Seiko Champion Ref. 86898

I absolutely love it. It makes me think if a watch can look this good and function this well at this age, so should be able to as well. Iíll call this my inspiration! 37mm and wears like a champ.

Thanks Adam so much for having such a keen eye and for letting me now be responsible for it!

Iíll try to keep it out of trouble and will never wear it going for second place, it is a Champion after all!

It sure is. It'll be cool to wear this one (or '64 your Seikomatic) watching the Tokyo 2020 Olympics next year
