HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in December 1974.
It’s a blue automatic stainless steel Seiko from the 1970’s, so this will be popular. The two tone dial is very good, as are the hands, The 7006A movement is running nicely, and has quick set date via the crown. The date, in English only, can be semi quick set by winding the hands past midnight, back to 9pm, and back past midnight. This movement has a winding mechanism very similar to the one used by IWC, and it can only be wound by automatic winding so does suit a more active person. The crystal is interesting, as the faceting is on the inside of the acrylic to prevent it from being chipped. There is no technical reason to use facets on crystals, but it was the fashion. There is a mark to the crystal at about 2 o’clock, and the stainless steel case is also scratched on the top right corner too. The oyster style bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath, and is full length.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, outer cardboard sleeve, instruction book (hand written inside with a different model number and our Certificate of Authenticity.
