Object of Desire: Seiko SpeedTimer "Bullhead" Chronograph

I love vintage racing chronographs, and this one is actually for sale by yours truly. It's a Seiko Speed Timer, produced in Japan around 1976. This automatic mechanical chronograph works perfectly and features a choice of English or Japanese day indicator. I personally like using the Japanese setting.

The case style is known as a "Bullhead" due to the position of the pushers at the top rather than side of the case. In actual sports usage, I have found this position is far easier to manipulate than a side-mounted configuration. It's also perfect if you take the watch off and hold it in your hand like a stopwatch.

I don't have any banners on this site, so please pardon this shamless plug for my own ebay auction! Sorry about the hairy wrists...

That's an awesome watch, but it could use more wrist hair

Does that mean you are interested, my hirsute friend?
