セイコー ロードマチック スペシャル 5216-6030 3面カットガラス

Item Number: SEIKO236

¥4,546.57 CNY

セイコー ロードマチックは1968年に発売され、1970年代にビジネスマン向けに非常にヒットしました。


グランドセイコー(GS)、キングセイコー(KS)に次ぐセイコー第3の高級ラインとして誕生したロードマチック、当時の初任給の半額ほど、今でいうと10数万円で販売されていたにも関わらず高級機に劣らない機能性、実用性を兼ね備えていたというのがその理由です。

また、ロードマチックはGSやKSには殆ど無いカラーダイアルやカットガラスのタイプなど、バリエーションが豊富に存在します。

この時計は側面の曲線が美しいデザインのケースで、35mmとロードマチックの中では小ぶりな部類に入ります。

文字盤は斜めに交差した絹目模様のシルバーダイアルに、幅広のバーインデックスという組み合わせ。

インデックスが真ん中で割れて谷のようなデザインになっているのが面白いポイント。

また、風防が3面カットガラスとなっていることも大きな特徴で、角度によってキラキラしており、ダイアルの見え方も変わります。

搭載ムーブメントは自動巻きのCal.5216Aです。

ロードマチック(LM)には諏訪精工舎(現セイコーエプソン)の56系と言われるCal.56xxのムーブメントが搭載されますが、このLMスペシャルのムーブメントは亀戸の第二精工舎(現セイコーインスツルメンツ)製です。

そのため、スペシャルと名は付いているものの搭載している機械の系統が違うという、非常に興味深い時計です。

曜日、日付ともにリューズを引き出してのクイックチェンジが可能です。

上に回すと日付が、下に回すと曜日がチェンジします。曜日は日本語/英語の切替が可能です。

現行のセイコー製機械式時計はこの方式を採用しており、その基礎となった時計とも言えます。

新品販売時に付属していたロードマチック用の純正ブレスレットが付属します。

オーバーホール済み。6ヶ月保証となります。

This watch is called the Lord Matic (LM), which was Seiko’s third luxury line after the Grand Seiko (GS) and King Seiko (KS).

The Lord Matic was launched in 1968 and became a very big hit for businessmen in the 1970s.

The reason for this is that even though it was sold for about half the starting salary at the time, which is more than 100,000 yen today, it had the same functionality and practicality as the high-end models.

Another feature of the Lord Matic is that it is available in a wide range of variations, such as colored dials and cut glass types, which are rarely found on the GS and KS.

This watch has a beautifully designed case with curved sides, and at 35 mm.

The dial is a combination of a silver dial with a diagonally intersecting silky pattern and wide bar hour markers.

The interesting point is that the indexes are split in the middle, creating a valley-like design.

Another great feature is that the windshield is made of three-sided cut glass, which glitters and changes the way the dial looks depending on the angle.

The movement is the automatic Cal.5216A.

The Lord Matic (LM) is equipped with the Cal.56xx movement, which is called the 56 series of Suwa Seiko (now Seiko Epson), but the movement of this LM Special is by Daini Seiko (now Seiko Instruments) in Kameido.

This is a very interesting watch because the name “Special” is attached to it, but the mechanical system is different.

Both the day of the week and the date can be changed quickly by pulling out the crown.

Turn it up to change the date, and turn it down to change the day of the week. The day of the week can be switched between Japanese and English.

The genuine bracelet is included.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
