1979 Seiko 5 Sports automatic with box

A sought after Seiko 5 Sports, model 7009-8560, with the original box and good length bracelet.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in August 1979.

CONDITION

This watch has a combination of nicely even patina on the bezel, and a crisp, clean dial.  A new bezel insert would make this watch look one year old, but it would also lose both originality and character.  The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath, and is a good length so should fit most wrists.  The quick set day date function is working perfectly, and the lume on the hands and hour markers still has a useful glow.  The case has a few small and even marks, but nothing bad.  The box is included, but the clip that the watch would normally sit on is missing.

Please see the HD video below for more detail.

SIZE

Approximately 39.2 mm wide including the unsigned crown, 11.0 mm thick.  Takes a 20 mm strap.  The bracelet will fit a maximum wrist size of approximately 200 mm.

PRICE

£125 including 1 months guarantee and free delivery to UK addresses.
