Description

The year end downsizing continues as I put up a few more 8F56 watches for sale. This one here is another SBCJ007 "Landrek", this one a silicone strap.
To my eyes this model shares some design cues with the Spork (dial) and the Monster (case). The Landrek has a titanium case, screw down crown, and bidirectional bezel. The crown jewel of course is the 8F56 movement, which is a high accuracy quartz movement (spec'ed to within 20 seconds a year when worn regularly). In addition to perpetual calendar and a 10-year battery change interval, the 8F56 is a "true GMT" watch, otherwise known as a "traveller's GMT". The hour hand can be quickset independently at 1 hour intervals. To many people this is preferred over the other kind of GMT watch, where the 24 hr hand is the quickset hand.
Specs of the Landrek are as follows: Case width: 41mm (w/o crown)Lug to lug length: 46mmLug spacing: 20mmThickness: 12.5mmCrystal: mineralMovement: Seiko 8F56 HAQ w/ GMT & perpetual calendarWR rating: 200 meters
The watch for sale is in decent condition. The case and bezel show a good amount of wear, especially around the lugs. The original crystal was scratched, and has been replaced with a flat mineral crystal without a cyclops. The crown screws down smoothly, and the bezel rotates both ways with the right amount of friction. The watch will come on a silicone strap that appears unworn.. The movement is running well and the perpetual calendar has been properly set.$175 and I will pay for shipping within the USA. Members outside of the USA please contact me for a shipping quote.
