Any watch enthusiast can attest to just how important the quartz revolution was in the world of horology, it brung new watchmakers to life as well as put legacy brands to rest with its amazing accuracy and eventual mass production capabilities but it all had to start somewhere and this is just one of those watches. 

Produced just three years after Seiko unveiled the world’s first mass producible quartz watch; the Seiko Astron, this Seiko will fit perfectly in the collection of anyone looking to get into early quartz watches.

A stunning silver sunburst dial shimmers when the light strikes it and is paired perfectly by mirror polished indices. 

Powering this watch is the Seiko 3802 7-jewel quartz movement which offers great accuracy, service friendly construction, hacking for precise time setting and a date with quick-set for convenience. 

Housing this watch is a very 70s design from Seiko with sharp raised hooded lugs and a chunky comfort case.

Condition: In good condition although does have some wear acquired through time and wear, most notably in the crystal though no severe damage that takes away from the beauty.
