Other: This gorgeous Seiko Bell-Matic Alarm is the definition of value - How did they pack so many features into one watch while retaining such a minimal design aesthetic?

Speaking of the original bracelet, it is super comfortable (there is something special about these old beads of rice bracelets).

This particular Seiko Bell-Matic Alarm comes in collector-grade condition with an unpolished case and a versatile look that can be worn with just about anything!
