Here's my little family of LordMatic Specials. These are from Daini, running @28,800bph, at the Seiko "B" accuracy grade [-10 to +15 secs/day]. This is one grade higher than the "regular" LM from Suwa [cal. 5606] and 1 grade below the King Seiko [KS]. These came in 2 variants: 23j & 25j.
They were also made with the cal. 5206. The only difference, as I understand it, is the 5206 had a limitation on when you could safely "quickset", while the 5216 removed that limitation. They both hack & they both quickset the day & date.
First up is mine with the original faceted crystal to show you the original design:
Next is another example, but with a plain crystal to show you the beauty of the "honeycomb" dial:
Here's the back:
Shot of original bracelet with LM marking:
Note the 2-toned effect on the dial [light blue on edges, dark blue band in center running from 12 to 6 o'clock. This one is my most "sedate" LM Special.
Here's a back shot:
This one appears to have a 2-toned dial, but it's really because the dial is angled up to the centerline [running from 12 to 6 o'clock], so lighting is actually responsible for the differing hues of blue in this case. Another example of the "mod" look with the monument style markers!!
