Just got this old orange Seiko. Its a 7005 series watch which dates to October 1971 according to the Seiko calculator. A little on the smallish side at 39mm (probably considered huge for the day). The bracelet even fits my 8" wrist. Seems to be in very nice shape overall-although there are some scratches in the crystal visible in indirect light. Second hand sweeps smoothly around the dial and it seems to keep accurate time-over a few hours anyway. Here are a few quick pics. It gets dark very early these days so no natural light.

very nice Mark! Congrats.

Were you out of the fog today? Not down here in the valley

No fog here today. Its weird where it hangs out sometimes. I went flying last week and when I checked the weather, it was still fogged in at the Hillsboro airport at noon.

Yes..I'd say this watch is vintage ! Is 1971 Vintage? Icon_smile Congratulations to
you on getting this one. I really like that case, it's incredibly
smooth looking. The bracelet also follows that same theme,
while the colorful dial takes the cake !..VERY nice watch, I
hope you enjoy it !

I've timed the watch for 24 hours now and its gained 20 seconds-running smooth though. For a watch that was made when I was 7 years old thats not so bad.
