|Strap / Bracelet
|New Crocodile Leather
|High Accuracy Quartz / HAQ
|+/- 5 Seconds per year
A very elegant Seiko Superior Twin Quartz from the peak of the Quartz era. The slimline Cal. 9681 movement is one of the finest producted by Seiko and a showcase of what they could do in the early 1980s. The high-end movement features 6 jewels, and is adjusted to temperature and specified to run at an incredible +/- 5 seconds PER YEAR. This watch is still running within those high accuracy specifications.
The case is 14k gold with a very fine patterned design. The case back is stainless steel case , with the original blue protective sticker with just slight marking to the sticker (indicating only light use ovr the last forty years). The crown features a cabochon stone. The gold coloured dial has a lovely textured pattern to it, and the seconds hand is capped. The original sapphire crystal is unmarked. This would suit a slimmer wrist, at 29.6mm x 36.0mm excluding crown / including lugs.
The watch has the croc leather as per the photo in the box. The watch will come with that period Seiko box.
