A fantastic example of this Seiko classic, this 6309-7040 is completely original (bar the new seals and crystal). The aging is consistent all over from the weathered lume to the unpolished case which gives it a brilliant used 'tool' watch feel- exactly what it was designed for! We have had the watch fully serviced so it is ready to go on the wrist and be enjoyed once again.
These watches are very quickly becoming highly collectible items and are following the value trend of the earlier diver models. A lot of similar watches have been modified or exchanged with non original dials and bezel inserts, meaning finding an original example is getting increasingly difficult.
The water resistance has not been checked so cannot be guaranteed.
