1964 Seiko 6217-7000 World Time “Tokyo Olympics”

0.00

As the world brought their greatest athletes to Tokyo for the 1964 Olympic Games, Seiko brought the world to wrist of the watch wearing public. The World Time was the perfect way to commemorate the games, and in addition to the model and serial number, the case back was also embossed with the Olympic torch. This example from August of '64 is an absolute stunner. The silvery white linen dial is bordered by split, bi-color 24 hour track and framed by a matte silver rotating "cities of the world" bezel with a sleek red trim. The case architecture is classically shaped and serves as merely a frame for the dial aside from neatly proportioned lugs. The case back, after a half century of use, is quite worn as is typical of these etched designs, but the Olympic Torch and case markings can still be seen. Unpolished and completely original aside from a replacement crystal, it is truly an outstanding example, and a perfect opportunity to add a piece of true Seiko history to any collection.
