Seiko's "Weekdater" line up from the 1960's offer some of the cleanest layouts and appealing designs to come out of era. Mid-century modernity and minimalism that's just as relevant today as it was when they were introduced more than 50 years ago. This Business-A from December of ‘67 is a scarcely seen variant that offers a few benefits not found in its cal. 62 brethren. For starters, the movement is a true gem that showcases the innovation to Seiko’s approach at the time. Rather than the “magic lever,” the winding mechanism incorporates a complicated, yet very efficient integrated “inversion roller” system that is silky smooth and can be manually wound via the crown. The case styling is unique as well. Beautiful detailing and finishes make it a standout design with protruding lugs onto which five separate surfaces converge. The flat polished bezel frames a silvery white sunburst finished dial with a lacquered finish. The applied markers are perfectly beveled and finished in black along the top. The oversized dauphine hands command attention with their razor sharp taper and black striped finish. Both day and date windows are cleanly framed, and overall, it is in fantastic condition considering it has just reached the half century mark in age. We’ve paired it with a distressed black leather with reverse stitching to bring out the subtle detailing in the dial. A rare treat, this ones sure to be a head turner on any wrist.
