A high-grade Japanese 'automatic' mechanism from "SEIKO", hailing from the 1960's. This engine came from a 'self-winding' wristwatch, meaning that it was designed to automatically wind itself without the owner's own hands - a technology that only began in the 1920's. This is Japan's version, made in the Mid-20th Century - Clean and industrial, the 'cityscape' built up from the many layers shows a great sense of depth. The oscillating weight on the top moves-as-you-move... So if you give - You get back...
