Seiko Credor 8J81-6A30

Vintage Seiko Credor 8J81 6A30 Beautiful Fully Working Condition from 1999 with New Hirsch Strap and original Credor strap and buckle

Fantastic condition with a clean beautiful white sunburst dial with one small light blemish near the 8 visible with the naked eye and a few smaller blemishes visible under magnification.

The hands and all indices appear perfect.The case is in lovely condition overall, but has very light abrasions to be expected on a 20 year old watch. It has one deeper dent near the 10 and modest scratches near the 9.

The caseback is mostly clean with clear crisp text but has some light scratches from opening. It has been engraved in Kanji.

The crown is original, clean and secure. The hands set precisely and smoothly as expected.

The strap is a new Hirsch leather strap with crocodile pattern. The original, but very tired strap and Credor signed buckle in excellent condition is also included. Sadly the Credor buckle will not fit the Hirsch strap.

A new battery has just been fitted and the watch is running accurately. I do not know when it was last serviced.

The 8J81 is thermo-compensated, High Accuracy movement. When new this was rated at 10 seconds a year and is still running extremely accurately. This example was made in 1999

Credor is a Seiko sub-brand providing very high quality finishes and materials with Seiko’s highest quality movements. This watch is small but wears bigger than its dimensions suggest, and at just over 5mm thick it is extremely comfortable.
