Seiko ELNIX 0703-8030

The ELNIX is an electromagnetic watch.  A technology before the quartz revolution  Running at 28800bph, the sound it made is very dfferent from the other Hi-beat watches, it is really a joy just by hearing it clicks. The noise it made is very different.  This, in most part, is an mechanical watch, without a rotor for automatic winding but a battery to power the movement.

This 8030 is made in 1975, which seems to be the final year for the ELNIX series.
