Points of Mention
This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or paperwork. The watch comes paired with its original 16mm leather strap with a gold-plated signed pin buckle, this strap is well worn and we would recommend a new strap for regular wear. The watch is from Circa. February 1980 and is sold in worn vintage condition, but overall very fair condition as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Here we have a 1980 Seiko Quartz "Connaisseur" Gold-plated Bezel 6020-5360 with a 28.5mm octagonal case that elegantly sits on your wrist, the geometric profile leads to a lug-to-lug length of 36mm and a case thickness of just 4.5mm that ensures a comfortable fit. On the right side, is a black cabochon inset crown, and the gold-plated bezel has a deep concentric pattern that holds a flat crystal with chamfered edges sitting slightly above the case. A silver dial has applied gold-plated Roman numeral 12 and a combination of printed and gold-plated batons marking the hours, perfectly balancing the delicate aesthetic, gold-plated baton hands sit majestically in the centre, and at 12 o’clock we have the Seiko motif, Quartz printed underneath and at 6 o’clock "Connaisseur" in a flowing script completing this sophisticated dress watch. On the reverse a stainless steel snap-off case back, inside a Quartz movement. The watch comes paired with its original 16mm leather strap with a gold-plated signed pin buckle.
This reference 6020-5360 "Connaisseur" screams 1980s in design, the extended bar lugs and the case shape, all brought together with a gold bezel, its perfection! I believe this model looks perfect on anyone's wrist, so don't be put off by the size, give it a chance and I'm sure you will fall in love!
Seikos' history began in 1881 when Kintaro Hattori established the K. Hattori retail and repair store. In 1892 Seikosha was established by making wall clocks. 1895 saw the production of their first pocket watch. 1913 saw the launch of their first wristwatch, the Laurel. In 1924 the first Seiko was manufactured. Daini Seikosha (now Seiko Instruments Inc.) was established in 1937. Seiko was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 1949. The Suwa factory became independent and formed Suwa Seikosha Co., Ltd. (now Seiko Epson Corporation in 1959). In 1956 Seiko launched Marvel as their first true in-house made watch; they continued to make this watch until 1959. Japan’s first chronograph watch was introduced for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics; it was called the Seiko Crown Chronograph a monopusher. Not stopping there Seiko launched Japan's first true divers watch the Seiko Diver’s 150M fitted with the automatic Caliber 6217 which later was given the nickname “62MAS” by collectors. The company name was changed to the Seiko Corporation in 1990. Innovation at Seiko continues today with GPS Solar watches.
