Other: This cool vintage Seiko World Time Automatic was manufactured in August of 1964 to commemorate the Tokyo Summer Olympics in October that year (check out the caseback). We love the bright silver "linen" dial with black/blue 24-hour track. And the red 24-hour hand matches the red on the rotating world-time bezel. The wearer can line up their current location on the world-time bezel to the red 24-hour hand. The black/blue 24-hour track on the dial itself will then point to the corresponding times in other major world cities. The in-house 6217A movement features a convenient quick-set date feature. For peace of mind, it has just been completely overhauled by our watchmaker with a rare new old stock factory SEIKO crystal installed at the time of service.
