WHY IS THIS WATCH IMPORTANT
This Mono Pusher Chronograph has a special place in the history of Seiko. Designed alongside the Seiko World Time, created to celebrate the summer Olympics that was hosted in Japan in 1964, this particular model was also the first chronograph ever made by Seiko.
Seiko is a brand that gets richer and more interesting, the deeper you dive, it also got lots of attention from collectors in recent years. Is very hard to find these pieces in good condition, imagine one in MINT condition, this particular piece has seen very little wrist-time, unpolished, and is very clean.
In the case-back we see the Olympics Torch symbol engraved, this particular detail makes it even rarer and more desirable for seasoned collectors.
This watch is in great overall condition and unpolished, the case is very sharp and retains its original lines. The dial is clean and has one small spot of aging almost unperceivable to the naked eye at 12 o'clock.
Inside the case back we can see some small scratches probably made during the opening and closing of the back.
The watch has just been serviced and keeps good time for a watch of its age.
