Fully working, keeping excellent accuracy with a new 381 battery.
Day/Date quickset works perfectly.
Fantastic condition with a very clean beautifully textured dial with just the smallest trace of marks at the very edge.
The faceted silver hands have a thin black line along the centre and along with the applied hour indices are in near perfect condition.
The crystal is unmarked and completely clean. The bezel has some scratches as would be expected from a 42 year old watch but nothing too deep or that detracts from the overall look.

The original signed crown is secure and precise and works appropriately in all positions.
The caseback and battery hatch are unusually clean with just the lightest of marks.
The original bracelet is in fantastic clean condition without any obvious stretching and with a secure clasp.
With a user accessible battery hatch and modern batteries, the beautiful textured dial is just gorgeous and provides wonderful legibility against the black hands. This slim, well proportioned watch is a very handsome, easy to wear every day high quality vintage King Seiko!
