1973 Seiko 6119-8490 “5” Automatic Day/Date

1973 Seiko 6119-8490 “5” Automatic Day/Date


Vintage affordables don’t get much better than this. From December of 1973, this Seiko 5 is a colorful standout with a workhorse movement and pounds of vintage appeal. The dial is a bright electric blue, topped with a matte silver chapter that also provides stenciled hour markers. It’s finished in a black hour and minute track, and meets small luminous plots at each hour. The hour and minute hands are polished batons with matched striping, and ticking off the seconds is a blaze orange tapered sweep. The exaggerated tonneau case sports the original circular brushed finish, and is topped with a well balanced bezel with bright blue inlay. It’s unpolished and completely original aside from a replacement crystal, and post service, the 6119 is keeping near perfect time. We’ve attached it to a light brown grain leather that perfectly compliments the dial and offers both comfort and versatility on the wrist. If you’re looking for a vintage summer classic that’s the definition of bang for the buck, this one is ready to fill the position.
