A very nice example of this unusual dial variant Lord Matic Weekdater 5606-7010 that combines a funky early 1970's vibe with the more traditional grammar of design ethos and the fabulous, underrated 5606 movement. Automatic movement with hand winding ability and hacking. Working Quickset and in great condition. Day wheel in English and Kanji. The dial is a beautiful silver grey/very light blue linen sunburst effect that looks gorgeous as it catches the light. It comes on its original bracelet/clasp. Serviced in November 2020 with a new crystal. These watches are amazing value when you consider the quality of the design, cool dial texture and reliability/quality of the movements.
