1960s Seiko Motorist (Ref. J14108E) "Gold Cap"

$ 2,600

This unbelievably unique driver's Seiko screams "MOD!". With its asymmetrical-cut case and offset 12 o'clock, we love this peculiar and rare piece. The Seiko Motorist was introduced in 1964 and is said to be a variant of the Seiko Harmony, which was a line of lady's watches. This watch sits perfectly within the unisex category, as it would look brilliant on a man or woman. 

The tilted 12 o'clock not only looks devastatingly cool, but also functions perfectly for the man (or woman) on the go, as the 12 o'clock is angled upright when the left hand is positioned at 10 o'clock on the steering wheel. The perfect watch for a solitary cruise down your favorite highway...

CASE & BRACELET

This ridiculously cool gold-capped asymmetrical case is unpolished and in good vintage condition. There is minor chipping of the gold cap around the edges, which is honest and consistent for its age. All factory engravings on the stainless steel caseback are in excellent condition. Comes supplied on a two-piece handmade leather strap.

DIAL & HANDS

The original dial is in excellent condition and reveals a very faint streaking patina from age. All font and markers on the dial are in excellent condition. The unique red metallic fluted surround underneath the markers is in excellent condition. The original Dauphine hands are in excellent condition with the exception of some slight oxidation at the base of the second's hand.

ACCESSORIES 

None. The watch is functioning and keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
