AJ's List


* New acquisition; Seiko 6117-6410 (circa 72 best I can tell thus far)

        * Suwa Seikosha- Suwa =  Swirl 
    * “Seiko accomplished this by making the two divisions, Suwa and Daini, completely independent of each other, not sharing parts, movements, or any design information.” 
        * “Suwa Seikosha and Daini Seikosha became separate entities in 1959 for the purpose of promoting competition and improving product for the overarching Seiko brand,...” 


Tech that caught our eye


Ok #watchfam, this one is for you!

USPS Informed Delivery (https://informeddelivery.usps.com/box/pages/intro/start.action)


* Know what’s in your snail mailbox before it arrives
* Granted, it takes the surprise out of discovering what’s waiting for you in your mailbox, but you can now skip getting your mail on a day where you receive sales flyers and junk mail no items that need your immediate attention.
