Not often do examples these Seiko models come on to the market and especially not in this condition! This particular watch is very close to what it would have been coming out of the Seiko factory 51 years ago, the case back has no evidence showing it has ever been opened and all factory stickers are present. The vibrant blue dial is original and in mint condition, with no fading, aging or patination. Couple all of this with the original leather strap and buckle and the watch truly is a winner!
This watch is incredibly rare and is a fantastic addition for a serious Seiko collector!
