Beautiful early Seiko 5 Sportsmatic in good good overall condition. It was released in March 1964 according to its serial number, it is probably the first Seiko 5 model. These vintage Seiko Sportsmatic are a must have imo, they look modern and are reliable, so they are perfectly suited for an every day use.
This watch is in its original condition, nice flawless dial, dauphine hands and steel indexes. Day (in english) and date at 3 (without quickset). The case of this early Sportsmatic is made of chromed brass, it is in good condition but with some loss of chrome and pitting (see pictures).
The movement is a Seikosha 410 21-jewel automatic (which will later become the Seiko 6619). It works fine, holds very good time and is according to my experience one of the most reliable mid-range automatic movements ever made by Seiko. The watch has been serviced in February, 2021.
The crystal is in good condition, as is the steel bracelet.
Vintage watch with unknown history but checked and cleaned. Water resistance non tested.
The pictures are actual and are part of the description, so please look carefully at them.
