Description

See pic. Watch head measures 36 mm (1 3/8") across w/o crown and from top to bottom is 43 mm (1 5/8"). Barrel shaped stainless monocoque case with small tapered lugs. Dial is satiny silver-white with stick hour markings and luminous baton hands. Dial reads Seiko automatic LM 23 Jewels. The day date calendar moves as it should and has no issues. Sweep seconds hand. Back of watch has the Seiko moniker, Water Resistant, Stainless Steel and 5606-7140 model number. Serial # indicates that it was produced in April of 1971. Also directions for opening this front loading case are written there. The crystal has been replaced and a new bezel makes it pop nicely. Took a long time to figure out how to install the new crystal but thanks to a WUS member here who gave me a link to the Seiko Casing Guide, I was able to get the proper glass gasket from overseas and my watch maker took it from there. A nice way to move up the Seiko line to just under the King Seiko's at a much better price. Mounted on a black leather strap. Asking $175 ppd. to N.American destinations, willing to ship overseas for a little more. Feel free to ask me any questions.
