Seiko first introduced their “5” series with the Seiko Sportsmatic in 1963.  Per Seiko, its 5 series was created to be a watch whose performance would serve the demanding needs of the then 1960s generation – the watches had to have five key attributes:

  • Automatic winding;

  • Day/date displayed in a single window;

  • Water resistance;

  • Recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position;

  • Durable case and bracelet.

 

The final challenge, again per Seiko, for the 5 series was to create a distinctive look that defined the needs of watch buyers and defined the brand.  Owing to Seiko’s extraordinary “Magic 5,” the winding efficiency of the Seiko 5 is rather high, rendering the use of the crown rare.  Hence the recessed crown, hidden under the lip of the case at 4 o’clock, giving the Seiko 5 its signature look.  For more information on the Seiko 5, check out their site dedicated to it, here.

 

DIAL:  Purple dial, with gold accents on hour markers – please note wear on the dial edges between 11 to 4 o’clock.  Day/date at 3 o’clock position works nicely, with Kanji Japanese and English day variants.  Original hour, minute, and second hands.  

CASE: Original 33mm (crown is recessed) x 39mm stainless steel case in pre-loved condition.  

CRYSTAL: Original acrylic crystal, no scratches or scuffs.

BAND: Three new 18mm Clockwork Synergy straps.

MOVEMENT: Original Seiko 17-jewel automatic movement, manufactured in February 1972  

CROWN: Original recessed unsigned stainless steel crown.
