A Bell-Matic introduction
The Seiko Bell-matic is a family of automatic watches characterized by having a mechanical alarm that can be set by an internal rotating bezel and activated/deactivated by a pusher located near the 2:00 position of the case. They were available in a wide range of styles and models during the late 60’s and 70’s and featured some of the largest non-diver cases produced by Seiko at that time. They are predominantly powered by a variant of the 4006 caliber of movements.

Seiko Lord Matic 5606 - The one flaw within
Navigating one’s way around the vintage Seiko model hierarchy is in one sense straightforward but in another extremely perplexing. Our perspective in this regard has been rooted predominantly in the positioning of the various members of the Seikomatic lines with the path up the greasy pole taking us from the modest but still rather splendid 6206 Weekdaters, through highly jewelled Seikomatic middle management to great pretenders and all the way up to something rather Grand. But that route someho
