Regular price $475.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS A WICKED COOL 70s JDM SEIKO TIME SONAR 7015-6010 IN EXCELLENT SHAPE.

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  THIS BEAUTY MEASURES A LARGE 39mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL RECESSED CROWN BY 42.5mm LUG TO LUG. HOODED CASE IS IN REALLY SHARP AND UNPOLISHED CONDITION MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL FACTORY BRUSHED FINISH. THE STANDOUT FEATURE ON THIS CASE IS THE SMOKED ACRYLIC SEE-THROUGH SCREW-DOWN CASEBACK. I WILL NOTE THAT THE ACRYLIC CRYSTAL DOES HAVE A CRACK RUNING THROUGH THE CENTER, BUT IT'S HARD TO FIND THESE IN ALL ORIGINAL CONDITION, SO I DECIDED TO LEAVE IT AS-IS TO FULLY SHOW-OFF THAT COOL BLACK ROTOR SITTING UNDERNEATH.

 

  • DIAL: THIS ONE REALLY LACKS MUCH OF A DIAL BECAUSE IT'S DOMINATED BY A TRANSLUCENT DISPLAY SHOWING OFF THE DAY/DATE WHEEL LURKING BELOW. THERE ARE SOME FUN INDICATIONS IN BLACK ON THE SEE-THROUGH DIAL WHICH ADD A SENSE OF DEPTH AND GIVE THIS ONE A REAL "TOOL" APPEARANCE. THAT PLUS THAT COOL SLOPING TACHY SCALE REALLY GIVE THIS A RAD SPORTY LOOK. THE YELLOW SWEEPER AND THOSE FUNKY WHITE HANDS ADD A NICE POP OF CONTRAST. THE ORIGINAL MINERAL GLASS IS IN REALLY NICE AND PRACTICALLY SCRATCH FREE CONDITION.
 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS GUY IS POWERED BY A SEIKO 7015 AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPH CALIBER. I DON'T THINK SEIKO USED THESE IN MANY WATCHES AS THEY ARE ONLY FOR TIMING 60 SECOND INTERVALS. I WILL NOTE THAT THE TIMEKEEPING IS SLOW ON THIS ONE BY A FEW MINUTES A DAY AND THE CHRONO SWEEP DOESN'T FULLY ZERO OUT BUT RESETS BETWEEN 12 AND AND THE 1 MINUTE MARKER. THE DAY/DATE FLIP APPROPRIATELY AT MIDNIGHT AND ALSO CRISPLY QUICKSETS.

 

  • THIS SEIKO IS MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE SEIKO SQ OYSTER STYLE TAPERING BRACELET WHICH LOOKS RAD ON THIS SONAR. BRACELET IS CURRENTLY SIZED FOR MY 6.75" WRIST WITH 3 MICRO-ADJUSTMENTS LEFT, SO IT SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE AT LEAST A 7.25" WRIST. THESE ARE RARE AND HARD TO COME BY. THIS ONE COULD DEFINITELY BENEFIT FROM A SERVICE, AND THE PRICE REFLECTS THIS. THIS IS ONE OF THE WEIRDER SEIKOS TO EMERGE FROM THE 70s. TRYING TO FIND ONE IN HALF WAY DECENT CONDITION IS BECOMING HARDER AND HARDER. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO GRAB YOURSELF A CLASSIC AT A GREAT PRICE.
