The distinctive case shape gives it its name UFO and is very comfortable on the wrist. Hardlex crystal protects the inner bezel which is rotatable in either direction via the crown. Baton hands and hour markers are easy to read with an application of lume, which is in its original condition and looks incredible. An orange sweeping centre seconds hand adds a nice contrast against the black dial. A day/date window sits at 3 o’clock. Inside we have the 6119 21 jewels Automatic beating at 21,600 BPH.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or original Seiko paperwork. The watch is sold in its original condition, having had a new crystal fitted it is in great cosmetic condition. The watch is running well and the functions all work, inner rotating bezel working via the crown, the push day and date working as it should though a little tight. The watch is paired on a new mesh bracelet.
Seiko always offers incredible value for money, the whole world knows it! Vintage Seiko, however, offers insane value for money! This is one amazing looking watch, some very cool features and in its original condition looking amazing. Whether a Seiko fan or not, this can be appreciated by everyone for how cool and 70s it is!
