"Made in Japan"

today it's all about made in Japan. the Olympus OM-1 was first introduced 1972 (as M-1, the name was changed 1973 due to a lawsuit filed by Leica) and was the smallest and lightest SLR of its time. this particular model, the OM-1 MD (motor drive), was released 1974. it's accompanied by the fantastic 28mm & 50mm Zuiko lenses. the camera itself was cleaned thoroughly and the original black surface was replaced with blue leather. furthermore there's the Seiko "Sea Urchin" automatic watch which for me is one of the best entry level options out there. the international model is more commonly available, but i wanted the made in Japan version.
