A nice Seiko chronograph men’s watch with an exceptional yellow dial and blue subdials.  Model reference V657-9010


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being made in October 1998.


Contrasting subdials are always an attractive feature on any dial, but this is the first time we have seen blue sub dials on a yellow dial and the design works.  We especially like the word Chronograph in yellow on the top blue subdial.  Everything is original except for the glass, that we have just had replaced, and of course the battery that will have a new cell fitted before it is sent out.  The bracelet does have quite a few marks, some quite severe.  Some people like watches to look their age, other prefer them polished, and some people might put this straight onto a leather or rubber strap for a different look altogether.  All functions on the V657 movement work as they should, with 1/10th seconds dial at 12, chronograph seconds at 6 and chronograph minutes at 9.  Unusually the centre seconds hand is for the normal timekeeping, not the chronograph, so runs permanently.  The original box is included but no paperwork.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
