Many Seiko watches from the 1960’s and 70’s have rightly gone down as design classics, building a considerable following amongst watch collectors.  Conversely, some truly gorgeous watches from the same era were produced by the same company have quietly slipped below the radar for the simple reason they were designed for the typically slighter of wrist, ie: women - like this 1978 Seiko 2205-0800 automatic women’s watch here.  

 

And it’s a shame, because many of these smaller watches feature exquisite details – the Seiko 2205 was made by the Japanese company from at least 1970 through the late 1970s.  The most popular were the 2205 divers – the earliest counterparts of the 150M full-size divers (such as the Seiko 6105 and 6309) - which featured a variety of dial colors.  

 

There are many vintage Seiko watches popular with Seiko enthusiasts, and for good reason - Seiko discovered the secret to manufacturing mass-produced stylish and affordable watches.

 

And it made a lot of them...

 

This Seiko 2205-0800 comes on its original stainless-steel bracelet, and with springbar tool and rugged travel case.
