My first auto. It doesn't get much love anymore. It's just a bit too small and a bit too beat up.

Thanks for the post, it gives me the opportunity to ask a question that I've wondered about for some time.

Why does Seiko make a "5" and how does a "5" differ from a regular Seiko?

1. Automatic winding
2. Day/date displayed in a single window
3. Water resistance
4. Recessed crown at the 4 o’clock position
5. Durable case and bracelet

I wore my crusty old 5 today. They really used to recess those crowns.

I have that same watch, and did the same thing with it, put it on a brown leather NATO, looks like it could be the same strap. Excellent taste!

This one of mine is similar. I am so impressed with this "5" and it is so accurate as well. Have a grey strap on it now.

Here's my early '70s 6119-8470 that has noteworthy lume considering its age. Very light-sensitive and it holds that glow better than many of my other newer pieces.

Trying it on black leather, I think I like even better.

Seiko 5







Not a bad little watch for less than $75 delivered. Got to love Seiko 5.

A very classic appealing version of the 5. Good to see the 5 get some air time, as it seems that dive watches hog the limelight here.
