“Seiko’s WORLD TIME is for the man who needs to know international time and date instantly without the bother of charts and references.”-Seiko Package Insert
Vintage watches are seldom found in minty condition. Even more rare is for a vintage watch to be in good condition and include the original box. This watch comes not only in its original box (both inner and outer boxes), but with all of the original papers and the hang tag. The plastic wrap has never been taken off of the buckle that’s attached to the unmolested, beautiful beads of rice bracelet. Heck, it even comes with the original silica gel desiccant pack that has kept the moisture out over all of these years.
For a vintage collector, and most especially for a Seiko specialist, this represents the holy grail. In its current, new old stock condition, this is a highly collectible and investment worthy package. They’re not making any more of these, and with this one, it’s like getting in a time machine and picking up a brand new one from the dealer. These opportunities simply don’t happen. Ever.
