The Watch

Seiko 5 is the longest continuously running series in the Seiko family. The 5 stands for the watch 5 principle attributes :

  1. Diaflex (unbreakable mainspring)
  1. Diashock (Seiko's shock-resistant design, equivalent to the Swiss "Incabloc"),
  1. Automatic winding,
  1. Day/date indication,
  1. Water-resistant.

The distinctive 38mm tonneau case shape gives it an excellent wrist presence. A lug to lug length of 39mm and a thickness of 11mm ensures a comfortable fit. On the right side, at 4 o’clock a recessed crown. A blue ring adds an attractive pop of colour. The domed crystal sits above a blue dial. The outer white minute chapter ring has extended lines marking the hours with luminescence pips at their ends. Baton’s hands have an application of luminescence. An orange sweeping centre second hand adds a nice contrast against the blue dial. A day/date window sits at 3 o’clock. Inside we have the Automatic Seiko Cal. 6119, 21 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes on its original Seiko 18mm stainless steel bracelet that tapers at the signed folding clasp.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Seiko box or paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original Seiko signed bracelet with its signed clasp. The watch is from Circa. June 1972 and is sold in worn, vintage condition. The watch has been polished in its past but remains in all original and fair condition for its age. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


The moment I saw this watch I knew I had to have it in stock, I've seen them before but not one as good as this, the dial is vibrant and powerful, the pop of orange is striking and the watch really does stand out! As with most vintage Seiko, it won't be for everyone, but that's ok and that is what we like to get!
