Seiko Lord Matic Weekdater 5606-7000 from March 1969 - Original bracelet/clasp - 23 Jewels - Hand winding feature and hacking - Proof caseback - Working Quickset - Super Condition - Day wheel in English and Kanji

A lovely example of the iconic Suwa 5606 movement series. Ahead of its time in so many ways the 5606 was only let down by the quickest mechanism but this one is working smoothly and looks absolutely stunning in its brushed stainless and polished stainless steel case. The sunburst dial is in excellent condition under a new crystal. The hands also look exceptional. The case is in excellent shape with some light wear normal for the age of the watch but no serious dings. Case-back markings are also very well defined. It comes on its original stainless steel bracelet & clasp which will fit up to a 19cm wrist. These watches represent incredible value for a vintage watch

Movement: Original SEIKO Cal. 5606A - Running well, test worn for 24 hours. Not serviced or waterproof but keeping great time. Please see photo of watch on timegraher for readings, accuracy shown cannot be guaranteed but +/- 25 s/d is our benchmark for unserviced watches. Day/date turn over at midnight & quickset works as it should.

Case: Original, unpolished stainless steel, some age related wear but no noticeable dings. Solid case back with movement accessed through crystal, very well defined markings
