 Very cool, 1973 Seiko Quartz V.F.A (very fine adjusted) in very well maintained condition.

Most expensive Seiko offering from 1973.

List price 139,000 yen. By comparison, most expensive Grand Seiko V.F.A was 110,000 yen.

New crystal
New black Seiko cowhide leather strap with original Seiko buckle (worth 15, 000 yen alone) 

Overall condition is excellent.

Dial is clean and expensive looking as all 60 minute markers are applied. Very time consuming process. There is one minor blemish with a slightly darker spot above 6 o'clock. 

Case design is bold and eccentric, and instantly recognizable. There are few small scratches but nothing big. It is untouched, sharp and edgy. 

Disassembled and cleaned. 

New battery and packing. 

Amazing accuracy considering the watch is 50 years old.

Excellent watch and service

Have been looking for a specific vintage Seiko from 1973 - was thrilled to find one in such good condition and at a fair price. The watch is just what I was looking for - the condition matched the description with only a few marks, typical of something over 50 years old. The strap is a good and auhentic match and it is quite special to have the original buckle.
It was an easy transaction and the watch arrived in good time and very nicely presented in a case. Most definitley a five star experience and I would highly recommend to any watch enthusiast.
