Guess I'll post my LM Special with a similar case shape.

This is ~35mm on a 7.5" wrist.

Honestly, it's really quite amazing the condition you can find vintage watches is if you invest the time in finding good examples.

This is a 1971 Seiko LM Special 5206-6020 with a NOS crystal replacement.

Wow, no wonder I liked the mesh on the Cocktail Time. I have a Staib as well.

You could always take the mesh off the KS and keep it while selling the watch on leather.

>Fat but not obese

Well I get referred to as "the fat Canadian" in these threads, I'm definitely obese, and a standard length leather strap fits me just fine.

Nonetheless, I'm fairly certain that Bulang & Sons carry extra long versions of their straps, and if they don't you can order extra long versions from VintageStraps.it

If you want a cheaper option, ColaReb may also make extra long versions of their straps.

No shit Sherlock, but even a 36mm vintage Seiko LM Special doesn't look as small on me as that SKX did on that bloated, rotting corpse upthread in >>58202771

I have a 5206 for parts, but I'm just keeping it for spares. The only way I'd consider another 52xx is if it had a blue sunburst dial.

>>56734722

I'm married, actually. Also, considering which thread you're in, you should hardly be surprised at a certain level of watch autism.

Coffee

Yeah, all done by Shane.

The 5106 needed it because it wasn't running when i got it (someone put in one part backwards previously, was otherwise fine), the 5256 was at my request (amplitude was a little low), and the 5206 I asked him to do since he had to disassemble it to put in a NOS day wheel.

They all run great now. The 5106 does ~+1s/d by way of gaining 6 on the wrist and losing 5 off of it, but both 52xx's tend to run near +0-1s/d while staying between +2 and -2 max.

At one point the KS went 14 days at +0s total...

You'll provably end up having to fite me for it, since a blue dial non vanac is the only other 52xx i'd buy since I already have a 52KS and grey sunburst 5206.

You have two choices:

1) Pay at the top end of the market and be assured of getting a good example (e.g. AntiqueWatchChat)

Or

2) Use a proxy to bid on Yahoo Japan Auctions and find a great deal and take the risk of being disappointed.

The choice is yours and depends on your willingness to spend, risk tolerance, and ability to identify good examples from limited info.

I got pic related 5206-6020 for $70 USD + shipping, and a 5256-8010 for $120 USD + shipping, but caveat emptor.

If I had to use EBay for vintage Seikos I would pretty much only buy from well known Japanese sellers or from WIS selling on EBay or forums.

But really, there are much better deals available on Yahoo Japan Auctions senpai.

I got pic related for $60 USD plus shipping.

Hell, better for me if everyone forgets about 52xx Seikos, they just happened to fit what the guy was looking for.

LM Specials with blue fails (that aren't wacky Vanac variants) are pretty rare, unfortunately.

I'm still kicking myself about the Seiko Presmatic 5146 with a blue sunburst dial I got outbid on a while back.

I am actually looking for a Seiko 52xx with a blue sunburst dial myself. I bought the dark grey one strictly because of the dark grey sunburst dial and swapped the crystal and serviced movement from the first LM Special I bought to it.

Second for vintage Seikos.
