Post Impulse Buy… Seiko Chrono, Date, Alarm… Quartz? Thoughts...
I saw this on eBay and thought it looked cool and vintage… And affordable. From an "Estate sale…" Anyone familiar with this model?

I have a thing for chronographs...

I have one like it, a Kauko Pulsar from the early 90s, they did cost a little back then.

I had one of those a couple of decades ago, very nearly identical to yours. I ended up giving it to a friend who admired it. He's still got it.

It looks lovely. Seiko chronographs are generally great.
Even on the higher end side, their automatic chronographs are technical feats

It came in the mail today... I think I like it better on the bracelet? Not sure how much I'll use it, but the alarm works too. Thanks for the kind words...
