Today I am wearing a blue, two-button, notch-lapel suit; a white/blue striped shirt with french cuffs; a maroon tie with small paisley patterns; a white pocket square; a pair of reddish brown cap-toed oxford shoes; a vintage and somewhat enigmatic Favre Leuba Seikomatic, manual winding, gold plated watch.
The enigma stems from the fact that the term “Seikomatic” is a term used by Seiko Watch Company and not by Favre Leuba. I have not been able to find any record that Seiko and Favre Leuba ever cooperated on any watch. I have also searched the Net without any success for any Favre Leuba watch with “Seikomatic.” I did occur to me that the dial could be a modification by some watch mechanic. Now that I had two identical Favre Leuba watches with “Seikomatic” inscribed on the dial, I am convinced about the authenticity of the diall.
The movement inside the watch is the standard FL-253, as shown below:
