Seiko Automatic 1975

  

This is a beautiful example of an all original Seiko automatic from 1975.

Not a good contrast between hands  and dial (the only criticism I can come up with). The dial colour is beautifully subtle metallic gray with typically highly polished luminous hands. The sweep hand has a unique square luminous dot near the end. The markers are raised and also well polished and there is a chapter ring that matches the dial colour with luminous dots on the hours. The band is nicely integrated and has a unique pattern.

Inside is the legendary 7005 movement, possibly the most successful automatic movement ever, it’s derivatives are still in production today.

Signed four times, completely original and in perfect condition, I smile every time I look at this one.

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
