SEIKO5 Sportsmatic 6619

SEIKO5 Sportsmatic
Caliber 6619-8030 Diashock 21 Jewels
Dolphin emblem caseback

This vintage Seiko5 was manufactered in 1965 and the dial has maintained blemishless till today. The hands and indices are all steel and without lume, so there you have a very clean simple evergreen design. The 6619 adopts the push crown to set the date wheel. The movement was running very strongly. Each time I shake the watch, I can feel the spinning force within the case. Very robust early Seiko movement!

My collection focus changed and I shipped her recently to her new home!
