Seiko Sports "5" Speed Timer Watch
An automatic, stainless steel Seiko Sports "5" Speed Timer watch with chronograph and day, date functions. The "Tokei Zara" or "Fujitsubo" is named for its shallow, bowl-shaped case. Much like the 6139 helmet model, the case is conical with a flared hooded lug on either side and has great presence on the wrist. It remains unpolished and in good condition. The watch is powered by the Seiko automatic caliber 6138, 17 jewel movement. The dial is perhaps the best feature on the watch. The deep gunmetal with the minute sub-dial at 6 o'clock in a lighter smoke grey, and very striking crisp white logo text and orange contrasting watch name text. The 30 minute counter for the chronograph balances out the dial well at the 6 o'clock position. The watch features an up and down chronograph layout with minutes being recorded at the bottom, and hours at the top. The orange center seconds sweep hand, along with the smaller sub-dial hands help provide a great pop of colour, and add a more sporty feel to the look. The watch is in overall very good condition. The case shows some signs of wear, as does the original Seiko bracelet. The dial and hand set are perfect and light up brightly under UV light.
Automatic, stainless steel watch.
