FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A VERY WELL PRESERVED SEIKO 6309-7040 DATING FROM APRIL 1980. 

  • CASE: ROBUST ALL-STEEL CLASSIC TURTLE SHAPED DIVE CASE IN HONEST AND UNPOLISHED CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A POWERFUL 44mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 45mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE STILL MAINTAINS ALL ITS ORIGINAL SHARP LINES AND EVIDENCE OF ALL ORIGINAL FINISHES. SOME UNIFORM HAIRLINE SCRATCHES THROUGHOUT AND A MINOR DING ON THE BOTTOM LEFT LUG, BUT OVERALL ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. ORIGINAL BLACK BEZEL HAS ONLY MINOR NICKS ON IT AND LOOKS SUPER CLEAN.
  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  THIS MATTE BLACK DIAL IS A WORK OF ART. CLASSIC SEIKO TOOL DIVER LAYOUT ON THIS ONE. BUT, WHAT REALLY MAKES THIS ONE A KICK IN THE PANTS IS THE LUME. THAT AGED GREY LUME PATINA ON THE DIAL AND HANDS IS THE STUFF OF DREAMS. IT REALLY ADDS THAT PERFECT VINTAGE FEEL. THE ORIGINAL CRYSTAL DOES HAVE SOME SHALLOW SCRATCHES IN IT AS CAN BE SEEN AND CAN EASILY BE REPLACED, BUT I DO NOT FEEL IT DETRACTS. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS CLASSIC IS POWERED BY THE SEIKO 17 JEWEL 6309 AUTOMATIC WHICH IS KEEPING TIME AND ALL FUNCTIONS WORK GREAT. WATCH QUICKSETS WELL, AND THIS ONE JUST STARTS RIGHT UP WHEN YOU PUT IT ON THE WRIST.

THIS BADASS COMES MOUNTED ON A 22mm CHEAPESTNATOS BLACK TROPIC STAR STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH FEELS BOSS ON THE WRIST. IF YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THE PERFECT VINTAGE SEIKO DIVER, I HAVE IT RIGHT HERE. THIS IS AS NICE AS THEY COME. THERE ARE PLENTY OF 6309 TURTLES OUT THERE(MANY FRANKENS AND MODS), BUT THIS ALL ORIGINAL SPECIMEN IS  EXTRA NICE WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF VINTAGE PATINA.
