Default Picked up a Seiko 5 today that spoke to me.

Pretty excited about this as It feels unique and inline with my style.
I have wanted a watch with an inner rotating bezel and bought this right off of one of my customers wrists. It jumped out at me. Fellow was ex-military. Also made a friend when I wen to pick up the box. Another benefit to watch collecting is the relationships we make.

Seiko 5 sports SNZJ67
7s36 movement with inner rotating bezel
43X12mm, 22mm lug Hardlex crystal
10 BAR resistant

I have seen that one in your pics. Definitely one of the nicest 5's I've seen.

Very cool pick up. Never met a Seiko I didn't like.

That is a sharp looking piece. I like the funky crown layout.

WOW! You found a real looker! I can understand why you would want to buy it right off the guy's wrist.

The design of the hands and indices are what really jump out at me.

I could be very satisfied with just a small stable of Seiko 5s to my name.

Congrats on the great find and on making a new watch friend!

Exceptional watch for the money back in the day. The 2 extra jewels of the 7s26 and nicer finishing made for a much better timekeeper, imo. Last I looked they were hensteeth. Very nice score
