Vintage Seiko King Quartz 9721-8010 Beautiful Fully Working + Original strap
Fantastic condition with a clean beautiful white sunburst dial with one small black dot visible with the naked eye near the 2 and a few tiny blemishes visible under magnification.
The printed text, hands and all indices appear perfect.The crystal is very clean with very light scratches that I can only see with magnification.The case is in lovely condition overall, with only very light abrasions to be expected on a carefully cared for 30 year old watch.
The caseback is mostly clean with clear crisp text but has some light scratches from opening.
The crown is original, clean and secure. The hands set precisely and smoothly as expected.
The strap is a new simple brown leather strap. The original very old Seiko strap and signed buckle is also included. Sadly the Seiko buckle will not fit the new strap.
A new battery has just been fitted and the watch is running accurately.
I do not know when it was last serviced.
The 9721 King Quartz is not so often seen, but one I find particularly attractive. I love the simplicity of the dial without any complications or even applied text, the printed text is unbelievable crisp. The pure white sunburst dial and slender applied chiselled indices give an amazing clarity against the simple jet black hands.
The movement is a twin quartz high accuracy device with a specified accuracy of 20 seconds per year when it left the Diani factory. This was always a high end watch and the fit and finish bears this out, but now its a very affordable piece of vintage classic Seiko that wears very easily at just 7 1/2 mm thick.
