Watch Update

[personal profile] delosharriman commented about the watch he helped Lisa get me for my birthday with a much better picture of the back than I was able to manage. Lisa was able to translate the back, and as I somewhat suspected, it says "Showa 57", meaning the 57th year of reign of the Showa emperor (Hirohito), or 1982, which is consistent with what I found for that model of watch (Seiko 7550) and the range of dates it was manufactured. The other two characters Lisa translated as "new" and "iron" (often in reference to railways), which makes sense.
