1981 Seiko 6309-8239 Automatic Day/Date “5”


For those looking to enter the vintage arena at an affordable level without compromising on quality, this 6309 from November of ‘81 is the perfect jumping off point. It boasts a white linen dial with rich texture, and framed diver style markers with creamy patina. The hands are polished and tapered batons beveled through the center, along with a slender reaching sweep hand. The shared day and date window is framed in steel, and the day can be toggled between English and Spanish. The case is a classic affair at a comfortable 37mm. It’s unpolished with a sleek linear design and sloping lugs. The crown sits recessed at the four o’clock position. Sharing a movement with the venerable “Turtle” diver, this time piece features the workhorse cal. 6309 with independent day/date quickset via the crown. A robust and reliable movement, it’s keeping fantastic time post service, and should offer many years of faithful service. Paired with an O.D. Green NATO to contrast the dial, this is a standout affordable that’s wrist ready and sure to garner attention.
