Almost certainly of no interest to anyone else - a beat-up old seiko quartz. However, this is pretty much the only watch that I have ever known my dad to wear. It's been with him to the falklands and back. Sadly he passed away on Tuesday and I miss him so much :( :'(

Sorry for your loss.

Those versions to me epitomise the Seiko style and the C2 /C20 have a hint of that style about them as well.

Wear it with pride and in remembrance. Watches like that are always worth more than just money

Very sorry for your loss. That Seiko will always have a special meaning to you, and will fill you with pride and happy memories whenever you wear it.
I have a 70's Cardinal quartz that belonged to my grandfather. The new battery is likely worth more than the watch, but it is the most important watch in my collection. I swear I stand straighter and walk taller when I am wearing it!

So very sorry for your loss.

I have exactly the same watch that my grandfather bought me for my 13th birthday, way back in 1982. It is a great watch and holds many memories. I will never part with it. Strangely, I had it out just today, as the battery needs replacing.

Treasure his watch and in the fullness of time I hope it will make you smile fondly.

So sorry for your loss. These times are never easy. My condolences to you and your family.

My father also left me a Seiko watch when he passed. I took great joy in restoring it to its former glory.

Cherish the memories.....
