Black beauties

Watches with black dials are common today but it hasn’t always been the case. Until the late 60’s and despite the fact that almost all models were available in black, only a little fraction of them were produced. If we focus on Seiko, all models from that era (except maybe the Lord Marvel, the King and the Grand) had black variations but they are quite rare.

I recently listed a Champion and a Seikomatic, both very attractive in black. Discover them below.
