1966 Seiko Sportsmatic Deluxe (Ref. 7619-7010)
Seiko introduced the Sportsmatic line in 1961 as a more affordable and sporty alternative to the Seikomatic. The Sportsmatic took many different forms throughout the 1960s, including dive models, varied calibers, and perfect daily wear options like the Deluxe we have here.
|2pc Handmade Leather Strap
The stainless steel case measures in at an arguably perfect 38 millimeters, with just the right thickness to create a fantastic wearing experience. The lugs are angled and wide, the perfect subtle compliments to the rest of the case design. The case retains its original quick set button and offest crown that resides at the 4 o'clock position. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The dial is an absolutely stunning and dramatic silver sunburst. The light explodes from the center before being halted by an off-white outer minute track. The dial features day and date complications at 3 o'clock and spectacular double chevron hour markers. The dial does exhibit some aging and some light cracking in the top lacquer, though it does little to distract for the presence of the dial.
None. Watch is functioning perfectly and keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
