A new arrival my second Seiko 6106-5470, this one has a Golden dial, the colour has a hint of green perhaps and yellow, quite a unique colour, the dial it is almost iridescent as it changes shades in the light. This Seiko 6106-5470, is in better condition all round that its blue cousin, the hands, dial, case, hardlex crystal are all excellent, quite amazing as the watch dates from 1974.
As you have probably noticed it is squared cased, a feature I a very fond of, there is a ridge right across the centre of the watch and also in the crystal. The light is not great, I will update with better pictures ASAP.
The bracelet and clasp are all original and in really great condition. It has a 23 Jewel automatic 6106 movement day/date, it does not wind but starts up, as soon as picked up. The case has minimum wear it has not been polished, edges are ding free, sharp and straight. A lot of watch for a little money!
TV dial indices which are typical of the 1970’s period, the day wheel has a black background with white letters, and the date wheel the colours are reversed. Not just aesthetically pleasing, also helps reading the day/date.
