What I am wearing today (28 May 2012)

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:

    1. Amit, I don’t have that many watches. Allow my collection to grow and then maybe I would consider a separate watch blog or section. By the way Amit, could you find out let me know the history of watches in your family, like your father, grandfather, uncles, etc. In Bangladesh, the answers would be Camy, Favre Leuba, West End Watch Co., and Anglo Swiss Watch Company. Did you know that Anglo Swiss was based in Kolkata? Thanks for the comment. Regards,
