Watches got a little radical in the early seventies, and with its orange coloured dial, here is an example. As a 1973 sports watch it was bulky and rugged with the crown tucked away for protection. Features include water resistant, day and date with a quick date change mechanism, features lacking in many Swiss watches of the time. This watch has one of Seiko’s best ever movements, the 6119 (it looked as good as it performed)…. couldn’t kill it with a stick!! It was also the base movement for the amazing chronographs of the day, the 6139 and 6138. I’m amazed that Seiko discontinued this movement at about this time.
A good sports watch in it’s day
